President Biden hasn’t done enough to help the economy or improve the everyday financial condition of Americans, locals from a Virginia town outside of Washington, DC, told Fox News.

“Honestly, unfortunately, I can’t name a single achievement that I can attribute to the White House,” a woman who works in the area told Fox News. “I can’t say Joe Biden has done anything to help small businesses that I’ve seen down here.”

The Biden administration is making a concerted effort to communicate the president’s achievements in the economy throughout the month of June, a White House official told Fox News this week.

“I really can’t think of anything,” another woman, Sharon, told Fox News. “In my opinion, they did more things wrong than they did.”

“We just can’t keep printing money and working our way out of this,” she added.

Biden said on Wednesday that the stabilization of the economy will not happen quickly.

“The idea that we’re going to be able to switch quickly, cut gas costs, isn’t likely in the short term, even in terms of food,” the president said.

The woman, who works near Leesburg, told Fox News: “We’re really suffering. Inflation is hitting us really hard.”

“Our dollars are going exponentially less and less than they used to,” she added.

“Inflation is hitting us really hard,” a woman from Leesburg, Virginia, told Fox News Digital.

“I don’t think their accomplishments come anywhere near their goals,” Leesburg resident Ray said of the new White House communications campaign. “I think right now their greatest achievement is failure.”

Sharon said, “People feel it at the pump, they feel it in their wallets, in their paychecks.”

The national median price for a gallon of regular gasoline hit an all-time high of $4.67 on Wednesday, according to AAA. The price of a standard gallon of gasoline has increased by $0.48 in the last month.

“Everything is sky high,” said Laney, a Leesburg local. “I used to fill up my tank for $50. Now it’s $80.”

Another Leesburg resident, Joe, said no party is responsible for the state of the economy.

“It’s a by-product of the Ukraine war,” he said.

Julie, a local, said Biden has allowed the war with Russia to get out of control.

“This war in Ukraine is costing us a fortune that our grandchildren, great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren will pay for,” she told Fox News.

Naim said he believes US support for Ukraine has hurt Americans.

“The oil and our interference in this war has affected us more than Russia,” he told Fox News.

Joe agreed with Biden’s message that inflation is to blame for Putin.

“I absolutely believe that Putin has a lot to do with the high prices we are currently paying,” Joe said.

Sharon told Fox News, “They’re going to claim that they created all these jobs after the pandemic … It’s just that the jobs came back when we were allowed to open our stores.”

Julie added: I think he should do something better for the economy. For once, put America first again.”
