I don’t know that I would try to “close” the border. I think control is a better word and I cannot remember a time when we truly controlled the border. I mean when you arrest people who have been deported multiple times, you really don’t control your border. I do think that Biden’s border policies have exacerbated an already bad problem. Since Biden is the current occupant of the Oval Office, it is his problem. That doesn’t change just because he chooses to ignore it.

1. How would you define a closed border?
2. And then, when has our border EVER met your definition? Under Trump? Bush? Ever?
If it's never met that definition, it is not a "Biden/current admin" problem. No?
That is not the definition of the word "transitory". You asked ME (and others on this board) that question. The term "transitory" means
Webster's says: "Temporary, not permanent".
I think our current inflation is not permanent. I never said how long or short lived it would be. IMHO, the Biden admin is probably hoping the decline will start before November, but they may not get lucky.
You can surface coat and mice words all you choose. I think trying to sell inflation as being transitory was a gimmick/excuse by the administration. It didn’t work so then they moved onto another talking point. Lipstick on a pig.
