Joe Biden told children in attendance during his White House remarks on Wednesday that he knows “great ice cream places” nearby and to come to see him after.
In the East Room of the White House, Biden began his speech by touting the Inflation Reduction Act, but not before telling parents in attendance, “I want to say one thing to your children.”
“I know some really great ice cream places around here, and Daddy owes you, so talk to me afterward,” Biden said to the children.
Biden makes a habit of praising ice cream.
Earlier this year, he opened his comments about gun control and the Nashville Christian school shooting by talking about ice cream, which many said was highly inappropriate.
“I’m Dr. Jill Biden’s husband, and I eat Jenny’s ice cream, chocolate chip. I came down because I heard there was chocolate chip ice cream,” he said.
By the way, I have a whole refrigerator full upstairs. You think I’m kidding, I’m not.”
After his off-cuff remarks on Wednesday, Biden boasted of the Inflation Reduction Act and “Bidenomics.”
“The Financial Times and the Wall Street Journal initially called my plan ‘Bidenomics.’ I’m not sure they meant in a totally complimentary way the time, but guess what, it’s working,” he said.
On Tuesday, President Donald Trump slammed the economic policies of Joe Biden, characterizing “Bidenomics” as “inflation, taxation, submission, and failure.”
“One of the most important issues in this campaign will be who can rescue our country from the burning records of Bidenomics, which shall henceforth be defined as inflation, taxation, submission, and failure,” Trump said in a video posted to Rumble on Wednesday.
“On day one, the Biden economic bust will be replaced with the historic Trump economic boom,” Trump said.
“Any numbers you see that are economically positive in the Biden administration are because they’re running on the fumes of what we created years prior to their taking office.”
