Former GOP Governor Calls Out Biden's Weak Economic Policies As Presidential Competition With Trump Heats Up: 'He's Not A Good Communicator'

Former Ohio Governor and Republican presidential candidate John Kasich (R-Ohio) criticized President Joe Biden‘s economic communication, suggesting a new approach.

What Happened: During CNBC’s “Last Call” on Tuesday, Kasich pointed out Biden’s weak economic polling and recommended a new economic team to improve the situation.

"He's not a good communicator," Kasich said.

“I would suggest he put together an economic team… to talk about what he would do in the second term. What an administration would do and contrast that with Donald Trump.”

Why It Matters: This critique comes in the wake of Biden’s economic advisor’s promise to provide relief for the middle class and his intention to overturn Trump’s corporate tax cuts in 2025. This could potentially lead to a tax law clash with the GOP. Biden aims to raise the federal corporate tax to 28%, a compromise between Trump’s 21% and the previous 35%.

Despite Biden’s claims of turning the economy around, his economic policies have not resonated with American voters. A recent poll showed that only 39% of respondents approved of Biden’s handling of the economy, down from 64% in April to 68% in May.
