On Thursday, former Vice President Joe Biden visited West Columbia, South Carolina to tour Flex LTD and announce a new ‘clean energy’ partnership between solar firm Enphase Energy and the company.
While there, he addressed an impressive crowd and made several claims about his economic policies that were absolutely untrue.
Joe Biden began his speech by proudly declaring that “the pay for low-wage workers has grown at the fastest pace in two decades.”
This statement is false according to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics which shows that real weekly wages have declined every month since he signed the $1.7 trillion stimulus package into law.
The former Vice President then attempted to take credit for reducing the deficit when he whispered: “I cut the deficit $1.7 trillion in two years. Nobody’s ever done that.”

During the excruciating speech, Joe Biden also lost a battle with his teleprompter.
