Sunny Hostin said she believes the answer is to educate the American people.

“People only blame the Biden administration, and I think the education part is really important because it’s a global phenomenon. There are reasons why our inflation rate is at 9.1%. If you look at all the economies in the world, 60% of the economies in the world have inflation rates that are really, really high, and that’s because of the global pandemic, isn’t it? “Said Hostin, also noting the war in Ukraine. “China has slowed production because of the global pandemic because they had the lockdown, and then you have of course, climate change, and so there’s has all these factors that lead to the fact that we have this inflation, and it’s not Joe Biden.”

Clinton said it was very clear that the Biden administration cared about the American people.

“The administration has tried a lot of things to deal with the inflation crisis,” she continued, saying Congress had thwarted Biden’s efforts to lower the cost of prescription drugs and cut taxes. . “The Biden administration deserves credit for what they’ve done. So we can say we think they should be doing more and a different set of things, but we shouldn’t pretend they don’t. doesn’t care or that she didn’t act because she was careful and they took action.”

Farah Griffin also argued that the United States should not rely on Saudi Arabia to increase oil production.

Goldberg and Hostin suggested oil companies lower prices.

The hosts previously gave Biden a free pass on inflation and other issues the administration has been addressing. “The View” host Joy Behar asked White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre in June how they planned to convince Americans that high inflation and oil prices essence were not Biden’s fault.
