President Joe Biden’s administration “inherited a mess from Donald Trump,” said White House chief of staff Ron Klain on Wednesday on MSNBC’s “Deadline.”
The “Deadline” host Nicolle Wallace asked Klain about last week election, and what were his thoughts about “what happened to Democrats.”
“I understand that voters are frustrated. We inherited a mess from Donald Trump,” responded Klain. “We inherited 4,000 people a day dying from COVID, only 50,000 jobs being created a month, giant supply chain problems, all these problems.”
“I’m proud of the progress we’ve made in these ten months,” continued Klain. “But I totally respect the view of the voters that we haven’t made enough progress yet. We haven’t gotten enough done yet. COVID is down by 75% from when we came here, but it’s not all the way. So I think we voted for saying on Tuesday was you know what, not enough yet, and we need to do more, and that’s what we’re doing. again, starting next Monday, signing the infrastructure bill, working with the House to pass the Build Back Better Plan which will help bring down inflation, bring down the cost of living, bring down people’s expenses.”
“We are not at ‘mission accomplished’ by any stretch of the imagination,” concluded Klain.
