Kamala Harris Wednesday afternoon delivered remarks at the United Steelworkers Constitutional Convention in Las Vegas, Nevada.
On Wednesday it was reported that US inflation was 8.5% in July – this is still close to the highest rate in 40 years.
Inflation remains historically high.
“Prices that consumers pay for a variety of goods and services rose 8.5% in July from a year ago, a slowing pace from the previous month due largely to a drop in gasoline prices.” CNBC reported.
Kamala Harris echoed Joe Biden and claimed there was 0% inflation in July.
“Today, we learned that last month our economy had zero percent inflation. In July, we saw a drop in gas prices and a range of other goods, like clothing and airfares and household appliances,” Harris said.

Biden said the same thing on Wednesday morning before taking off to South Carolina for a beach vacation.
“Before I begin today, I want to say a word about the news that came out relative to the economy. I want to say a number. Zero. Today, we received news our economy had 0% inflation in the month of July. 0%.” – Biden said.
Biden’s incompetent spokeswoman got roasted on Twitter for claiming inflation was 0% in July.
We just received news that our economy had 0% inflation in July. While the price of some things went up, the price of others, like gas, clothing, and more, dropped.
