A few days ago, President Biden said
Today, we received news that our economy had 0% inflation in the month of July — 0%
This was contested in conservative media, with Fox News running the headline "White House blasted for claiming ‘zero’ inflation after latest CPI report: ‘Lying to everyone’". They claimed it's not inflation that's 0%, but change in inflation that's 0%
That means inflation "slowed in July for the first time in months," as the outlet reported, though it’s only .2% less than the highest CPI (8.7%) in 40 years. Essentially inflation remains almost as bad as it’s been all summer. And it’s not "zero."
Perhaps Biden meant "zero" as in "zero increase" in inflation.
However various other news sites claim that the month-over-month inflation really was 0%.
So which is it?
