The fighter, who has 4.3 million Twitter followers, weighed in on the president’s performance with a tweet Saturday listing Biden’s accomplishments. Among them were record-high gas prices, surging inflation, falling crypto currency values, rising rents, and the creation of a “new incomprehensible language.”
“If you’re reading this and voted for Biden and you still don’t regret it then you are the American problem,” Paul said in summation.
1. Highest gas prices
2. Worst inflation
3. Plummeting crypto prices
4. Highest rent prices ever
5. Created new incomprehensible language
If you’re reading this and voted for Biden and you still don’t regret it then you are the American problem.

Last week, the national average price for a gallon of gas topped $5 for the first time in history. Conservatives blame Biden for restricting drilling and pushing a liberal environmental agenda that seeks to get America off of fossil fuels.
Paul’s tweet garnered nearly 100,000 likes, but Biden supporters replied by telling him he was out of his lane. Many told him Biden is powerless to stabilize soaring gas prices.
Washington Post reporter Taylor Lorenz was surprised that Paul’s “third biggest critique of the administration is the price of crypto going down.”
Paul could be watching Biden closely to help plot his own unlikely and very distant bid for the White House. Last year, he told Overtime he and his older brother, Logan, plan to run for president in 2032 although the plans appeared to be in their infancy.
“I’m running for president, but I’m not even 35 yet,” he said, noting the Constitution-prescribed minimum age limit. “My brother and I are running for president in 2032. That’s when we’ll be eligible.
“We’re still figuring it out. I might be president, he might,” Paul continued. “I think we’re gonna flip a coin and see who gets to be the president versus vice president.”
Until then, Paul seems focused on his ring career, which was also considered unlikely when he was just a YouTube prankster. His next fight will take place on August 6 at New York City’s Madison Square Garden. So far, he is 5-0 with knockouts in each fight.
In December, Paul stopped former UFC champion Tyron Woodley, who was a last-minute replacement for an injured Tommy Fury, the half-brother of world heavyweight champion Tyson Fury– who withdrew from his scheduled bout with Paul due to injury and illness.
