President Joe Biden faced backlash on social media for making a false claim about his predecessor, Donald Trump, during a Labor Day speech to union members.
Biden stated that Trump “didn’t build a damned thing,” contrasting it with his own record on infrastructure spending. However, critics pointed out that Trump did sign spending bills for various types of infrastructure.
Biden’s comments come amid internal Democratic disagreements over his proposed $3.5 trillion spending package, with Senators Joe Manchin and Krysten Sinema expressing reservations.
The ongoing debate has led to concerns among Democrats about the future of the party’s legislative agenda.
