WATCH: Clyburn attempts to spin blame for raging inflation on Trump

While appearing on CNN, Rep. James Clyburn attempted to spin blame for raging inflation on Trump.

Clyburn claimed Biden’s spending packages were a result of Trump’s “iinept” coronavirus response.

“I know how inept the previous administration was in terms of getting out in front of this virus. We got ourselves into a deep hole, and in order to get out of that hole, we had to ratchet up spending. We put money in the economy. We tried to keep businesses open, tried to keep people with income in their pockets,” Clyburn said.

A recent ABC News/Ipsos poll found only 28 percent of voters said they approved of Biden’s handling of inflation.
