Republicans mocked President Joe Biden for his "legacy" of failures and crises ahead of his State of the Union speech Tuesday night.

Rep. Elise Stefanik (NY) argued that Americans “will not forget the multiple crises Joe Biden created,” including crime, border, inflation, national security, and energy crises. Biden’s failures will be on FULL display!”

Sen. Rick Scott (FL) tweeted, "You’ll hear a lot of nice talking points from @JoeBiden at the #SOTU tomorrow, but here’s some inconvenient truths: Inflation,, Mortgage rates, Credit card interest rates, Food prices. The rich are getting richer while middle class Americans suffer."

“Crushing inflation, a border crisis, and weakness on China—that’s President Biden’s legacy after two years,” Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) wrote.

“Biden’s performance as President couldn’t be worse as he prepares for SOTU – and Americans agree,” the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) tweeted.

Numerous other Republicans pointed to polls showing that Americans say they are worse off under Biden and that they don't want him to run again.
