Former President Trump reveled in the crises facing President Biden on Wednesday, asking voters whether clogged supply chains, rising gas prices, and a humiliating retreat from Afghanistan made them miss him,
“COVID is raging out of control, our supply chains are crashing with little product in our stores, we were humiliated in Afghanistan, our border is a complete disaster, gas prices and inflation are zooming upward — how’s Biden doing?” he asked in an emailed statement.
“Do you miss me yet?”
His message will be bolstered by a new poll suggesting 70 percent of Republicans want him to run for president in 2024 and that he holds a commanding lead over his main GOP challengers.
In the meantime, the Biden administration is facing a torrid time on multiple fronts.
White House officials are scrambling to head off supply chain problems they say could mean more empty shelves and disruptions to holiday shopping.
And the cost of gas hit a seven-year high this week. The national average price for a gallon reached $3.27.
On Wednesday, the Labor Department reported that inflation had risen further during September. It said the annual consumer price index had increased to 5.4 percent.
