“The markets and your retirement savings plans will crash. Jobs will disappear” if ever Joe Biden becomes president of the United States, Donald Trump said on Twitter on Saturday.
The current president was reacting to Joe Biden’s economic program, which would lead, according to him, to a significant increase in taxes.
A remark that has annoyed many Internet users, while the United States has experienced an unprecedented rise in unemployment for several months. According to The world, 30 million Americans have asked for help, or one fifth of American workers.
The American economy in trouble
The recovery of the American economy, announced several times by Donald Trump, promises to be complicated. As proof, the gross domestic product (GDP) fell by 32.9% in the second quarter and confirms a historic slowdown in economic activity due to the health crisis.
The rebound that has started has been slowed down in particular by an upsurge in Covid-19 cases across the country. The pandemic has already claimed more than 154,000 lives in the United States.
