Joe Biden is Lying Again That He 'Used to Drive a Tractor-Trailer'

Joe Biden apparently told a group of technical college students in November that he "used to drive a tractor-trailer."

So how long did Trucker Joe's highway career last?

It never started. He was lying.

And those more recent remarks weren't the first time he's told this fib!

From Politifact, "President Joe Biden went to Dakota County Technical College in Minnesota to tout the benefits of the $1.2 trillion infrastructure package. Biden toured and met students in the college’s Heavy Duty Truck Technology area, and told them they were part of the next generation of workers to tackle the jobs that lie ahead."

The story continued:

"I used to drive a tractor trailer, so I know a little bit about driving big trucks," Biden said Nov. 30.
The young man next to him said, "Awesome." And Biden continued.
"I only did it for part of a summer, but I got my license anyway."

Again, this wasn't the first time he did this.

He did it in 2021.

And got fact-checked back then.

More from Politifact, "We asked the White House press office about Biden’s truck driving credentials and did not hear back."

"There’s no record that he drove an 18-wheeler, the typical meaning of a tractor trailer," their review noted. "The closest experience he had was in 1973, when, as a senator, he rode along on a 536-mile tractor-trailer trip from Delaware to Ohio."

So... the verdict?

"There is no record that he did [drive a tractor trailer], and his comments in the past suggest that at most, he was given the chance to drive one at some point. His reference to a summer job suggests that he was referring to his time as a bus driver, not a truck driver."

"We rate this claim False," PolitiFact concluded.

Someone should keep count of Biden's lies all they way through November.

We'll try.
