Trump Campaign Moms Slam Biden for Leaving Working Families Behind

In the lead up to Mother's Day, moms on the Trump campaign are criticizing the Biden administration for leaving "working moms and families behind." According to Trump national press secretary Karoline Leavitt, the Biden administration has disrespected mothers by using terms like "birthing people" instead of "mothers," and has created the worst inflation crisis in decades, allowed millions of illegal immigrants into the country, and permitted violent protests on college campuses.

Why this matters: The economic challenges facing working families, such as inflation and rising costs of living, have significant implications for the overall well-being of society. The policies and priorities of the administration can have a lasting impact on the financial security and stability of families, which in turn affects the broader economy and social fabric.

"Joe Biden can't even define what a 'woman' is and his Administration disrespectfully refers to mothers as 'birthing people.' Joe Biden has left working moms and families behind by creating the worst inflation crisis in decades, welcoming millions of illegal immigrants into our country to commit crimes, and allowing violent protests to erupt on college campuses," said Leavitt.

Lara Trump, another top adviser on the campaign, highlighted Donald Trump's commitment to working families during his presidency. "Not only did Donald Trump show his commitment to working families while President through policies like extending the child tax credit and paid family leave, but, he is also the only candidate for President who has vowed to give rights back to parents, protect our children from learning inappropriate topics in schools and keep all Americans, including and especially our children, safe from the disasters that have resulted from Joe Biden's open border policy," said Trump.

The Trump campaign has employed dozens of moms, including Leavitt who is expecting a baby this summer, and top adviser Susie Wiles. Since 2016, the campaign has also hired hundreds of working moms, including high-profile names like Kellyanne Conway, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, and Kayleigh McEnany.

Inflation remains a top concern for voters, with 67% of parents reporting that it is affecting their ability to pay for their children's education, school supplies, and extracurricular activities. The cost of household staples has increased by 31% since 2019, with a $100 bill now buying 32% fewer items. Americans are paying on average $784 more each month compared to two years ago. Diapers and the cost of child care have spiked by 32% since 2019, while baby formula has hit an all-time high under Biden.

Overall inflation has increased by 18.9% from January 2021 to March 2024, with food costs rising by 21%, shelter costs by 20.5%, and energy costs by 36.9%. The latest consumer sentiment index reading from the University of Michigan fell sharply to 67.4, down from 77.2 in April, as inflation expectations rose both for the next year and beyond. The Trump campaign moms' criticism highlights the economic challenges facing working families and the contrast they see with the Trump administration's policies and priorities.
