Donald Trump is blaming the nation’s inflation woes on “Radical Left Democrats.”

After reports that inflation for the past month hit a record 40-year-high, the former president, who has reportedly been furious about the televised January 6 insurrection hearings, immediately issued a statement through his “Save America” organization and on his Truth Social account. 

He wrote,  “Inflation just hit ANOTHER 40-year high of 9.1%, which is terrible for our Country. Fuel prices up 60%, Airfare up 34%, Eggs up 33%—how can people survive this? How can businesses survive this?”

He went on to say, “‘Our Country is so weak right now because the Radical Left Democrats have no clue what they are doing. All they want to do is ‘get Trump,’ and they are willing to destroy our Nation to do it. America will not allow this to go on for much longer. Don’t vote for the Radical Left Democrats, vote for America First Republicans—Save America!”

Gasoline prices have retreated in recent weeks, and many analysts predict that will lead to moderating inflation in subsequent reports.
