Former New Jersey Republican Gov. Chris Christie has slammed President Biden for shifting blame and failing to tackle crippling inflation affecting Americans “at every economic level.” On “The Brian Kilmeade Show” on Wednesday, Christie highlighted the role the Biden administration has played in driving up inflation and the growing likelihood of a recession.


CHRIS-CHRISTIE: He’s a guy who has no idea. He doesn’t know what to do with the gas price problem in the country. It is very easy to solve this problem. If you allowed and gave certainty to the oil companies that you were not going to take away their licenses, that you were going to allow them to execute their leases and do it immediately, they would be investing in infrastructure and increasing production here in the States States, in places like North Dakota, in places like Texas, in places like Alaska. They would. But the problem is that this administration has made it clear that it wants to carry out a war on fossil fuels in this country. And the result of this war is that we pay $6 a gallon for gasoline.

And I could just tell you that Joe Biden is strangling this industry and doing it on purpose because he pays homage to the far left in his party and the radical environmentalists who think that somehow we’re going to be able to get out of this problem with electric cars and solar energy. And that won’t happen.

I think what you’re going to see here is all over the country, people of all economic levels are affected by what is happening, the incredible increase in prices in all areas. It’s not just gas. He tries to focus only on gasoline, but we know that going to the supermarket is much more expensive than before. And all you want to try to buy in this country is so much more. … And this president sits still and tries to blame it on Vladimir Putin. The the person to blame is Joe Biden. His radical spending caused this inflation and this inflation is now forcing the Fed to raise interest rates. And these higher interest rates are going to cause a recession.
