According to the Cambridge dictionary, a recession is “a period, usually at least six months, of low economic activity, when investments lose value, businesses fail, and unemployment rises.”
When unusual voices, such as pop stars, see the evidence of an economic winter, the nation is clearly facing a season of financial challenge.
Her post sparked immediate responses from influential voices across the social media platform.
Republican candidate Lavern Spicer, replied on Twitter, saying, “Girl you know they won’t say shit because these Democrats just lie!!!”

However, many voices spoke up, pointing back to Cardi B’s endorsement of Biden, asking Black voters to register to vote for him in the 2020 election.

Diamond and Silk, Pro-Trump Advocates, replied to Cardi B, saying, “she advocated for black people to vote for Biden. Now look, there’s no baby formula, high gas & high food cost.”
We don’t give a damn what Cardi B has to say. Remember, she advocated for black people to vote for Biden. Now look, there’s no baby formula, high gas & high food cost.
Why the hell is she complaining? If she’s worried about a recession, maybe she should sell one of her mansions!

No matter the opinion of the voices on social media, it is apparent that the United States is facing record-high inflation, slowing job growth, and a need to raise interest rates and taxes.
