Virginia Governor Glenn Youngkin ripped President Joe Biden during an interview over the weekend about the state of America’s economy, saying that the economy was performing the opposite of the way that it should.

Youngkin made the remarks from Germany during a Sunday interview with Dana Bash on CNN’s “State of the Union” while discussing the importance of his state deepening its ties with other countries.

“Global economic strength is national security. And it’s critically important for us to have deep relationships with our trusted allies,” he said. “I think we have done a great job in the Commonwealth of Virginia in bringing companies to Virginia, but also developing relationships around the world. Last year, I was in Taiwan, Japan, and South Korea, and now I’m going to be in Germany, in Denmark, in Finland.”

“And it’s an incredibly important opportunity for us to deepen these relationships,” he continued. “And I think it also represents the fact that our economy is not performing as it should be. I mean, the reality is, we have low growth and high inflation. It should be flip-flopped. We should have low inflation and high growth.”

He concluded, “And it’s part of our economic mission to build that. I do think President Trump built that when he was president. I think we’re suffering under Joe Biden’s leadership economically. Virginia has done incredibly well over the last couple of years, as we have rebounded aggressively, with more people working than ever. And I’m going to continue to work to bring jobs to Virginia, but also to make sure we have great relationships around the world.”
