White House rallies around 'not inevitable' line as recession fears grow

The White House has spent the last few days repeating that a recession is "not inevitable" despite economists and most people seeming to think the economy is headed that way.

President Joe Biden, National Economic Council Director Brian Deese, and Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen have all repeated in recent days that a recession isn't imminent while touting positive aspects of the economy.

"First of all, it's not inevitable," Biden told the Associated Press last week. "Secondly, we're in a stronger position than any nation in the world to overcome this inflation."
