Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden appeared to have no clue as to what the U.S. population was during a talk on Tuesday and later forgot who he rallied with earlier this year.
Biden, while speaking at the Workers’ Presidential Summit in Philadelphia, said that his proposed $8,000 child tax credit would “put 720 million women back in the workforce.”
“You get a tax break for a race horse. Why in God’s name couldn’t we provide an $8,000 tax credit for everybody who has childcare costs?” Biden said. “It would put 720 million women back in the workforce. It would increase the GDP—to sound like a wonk here—by about eight-tenths of one percent. It would grow the economy.”
The current U.S. population is approximately 330 million people so it’s unclear where Biden got the notion that there are hundreds of millions more people living in the United States. . .

Biden has drifted further and further to the far-left during the Democratic primary race, criticizing Republicans’ desire to allow churchgoers to arm themselves so they are not the victims of mass shootings to supporting socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s (D-NY) $93 trillion “Green New Deal.” (Read more from “Memory Loss? Joe Biden Doesn’t Know U.S. Population, Can’t Remember Who He Rallied With This Year” HERE)
