Former Biden Chief of Staff Critical of Biden Campaign Efforts

Joe Biden’s former Chief of Staff, Ron Klain, has been doing the media circuit recently.

He appeared on MSNBC’s “All In” on Wednesday, where he did not exactly have a ringing endorsement of the efforts of the Biden campaign.

In fact, he even sounded like he was a bit critical of the administration to this point.


Klain, of course, tried to say that Biden is doing a “good job” while also trying to blame Donald Trump for the “mess” at the border, but he was clearly worried about the high prices that came to be due to Biden’s disastrous economic policies.

Klain started off by pushing the already debunked narrative on Trump’s “animal” comments regarding illegal immigrants, a comment that was clearly directed at the killer of Laken Riley.

Klain stated, “So, I think the President thinks he’s going to confront Donald Trump on his disgraceful conduct, on his record, and also talk about what he’s done and what he wants to do. And the event today with Sen. Sanders (I-VT) was a good example.

“It also — it acknowledged the progress they’ve made on bringing down the cost of prescription drugs. Yet, there’s still a big agenda left to be done.

“Working together with President Biden, with Sen. Sanders, got a bill passed that allows Medicare to negotiate the price of prescription drugs. That will save the government and save our senior citizens a lot of money on prescription drugs.

“Now, the President wants that to be true for everyone in our country and for people under 65 to have that same benefit, bring down the cost of their prescription drugs. That’s a real result that matters in people’s lives.

“Prices are too high. People need more money in their pockets.

“And so, I think both confronting President Trump on his outrageous conduct and chaos and having an agenda for what he wants to do in another four years, I think that is the key thing for getting President Biden re-elected.”

Klain dove a bit deeper into the inflation angle, adding, “And prices — although inflation has moderated, prices are still high, the price of gasoline is still high, other prices are still high, and people feel that pinch.

“And though wages have gone up, and the statistics say wages have gone up faster than prices, people still feel pinched in their pocketbooks.”

Wages have not actually outpaced rising prices from inflation, which is why so many of us have seen our bank accounts go backward for most of the three years.

Another major challenge is interest rates, which make it difficult for anyone to buy a new home these days.

Before Biden took office, most mortgage rates were in the sub-4% range, whereas now they are close to or over 7%.

As far as the border goes, they cannot keep blaming this mess on Trump. The border was under control when Trump was in office, and it has been raging out of control ever since Biden took office, setting records nearly every month.
