The Spectator’s deputy editor Freddy Gray warned the 46th US President’s leadership is such a “catastrophe” it is far worse than the woes Boris Johnson faces following ‘partygate’. Writing a comment piece in the Telegraph, he claimed Mr Biden is now facing crises on several fronts.
Gray argued: “The number of Covid hospitalisations in America has just hit an all time high.
“Inflation is worse than it has been in almost four decades.”
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics in December, the US inflation rate rose to its highest point since 1982 when it rose to 6.8 percent.
Gray added: “Biden’s preposterously expensive ‘Build Back Better’ plan is stuck in Congress.
“And his approval rating has, according to one poll, sunk to 33 percent, five points lower than Donald Trump in the same poll at the same stage of his presidency.”
But Mr Biden, who beat Mr Trump in the race to the White House by four percent and 74 electoral college votes, was also accused of “banging his head against legislative walls”, including through his vaccine mandate which was rejected by the Supreme Court.

Mr Trump responded to the Supreme Court ruling by issuing a statement.
It said: “The Supreme Court has spoken, confirming what we all knew: Biden’s disastrous mandates are unconstitutional.
“Biden promised to shut down the virus, not the economy but he has failed miserably on both—and mandates would have further destroyed the economy.
“We are proud of the Supreme Court for not backing down.
However, to make matters worse for the ex-Vice President, Mr Gray tore into Mr Biden for a speech he gave in Georgia on Tuesday.
Gray said the President made “a nod to his notoriously dubious account” of being arrested for trying to see former South African President and ANC leader Nelson Mandela.
The BBC reported in 2020 that the account has even been rebuffed by Andrew Young, the American ambassador to the UN at the time.
The Spectator journalist added: “He angrily proposed removing the Senate filibuster, an important part of the US legislative process, to embolden his plans to nationalise the election process and override state-by-state changes to favour the Democrats.”
Mr Gray described Biden’s voice as that of a “desperate leader who fears being judged at the ballot”.
Georgia, which flipped to the Democrats in the last election for the first time since 1992, will be a key state when Americans go to the polls in 2024.
Mr Biden won the state by less than 12,000 votes and Mr Trump has peddled as yet unfounded allegations he lost through electoral irregularities.

However, the Commander-in-Chief is now expected to lead the Democrats to heavy losses in November during the mid-terms.
And it is not just Mr Biden who Mr Gray challenged.
Vice President Kamala Harris was also lambasted for “her political ineptitude”, with the Spectator journalist even suggesting she makes Mr Biden “seem competent”.
In fact, Mr Gray argued there was so much anguish in Democratic ranks that ex-adviser Douglas Schoen pushed the possibility former nominee Hillary Clinton could be on the ticket in 2024.
“A wild idea, no doubt, given her enduring unpopularity,” he said.
“But the fact that it’s been taken seriously shows the desperation in Democratic circles.”
The latest Redfield & Wilton Strategies opinion poll gave Mr Biden just a two point lead over Mr Trump.
However, when Mr Trump defeated Ms Clinton in the 2016 Presidential Election by 306 electoral college votes to 232, the former businessman lost the popular vote by the same margin.
A separate survey, conducted by pollsters at Rasmussen Reports and Pulse Opinion Research, gave Mr Trump a massive six point lead over his successor in the White House.
