President Joe Biden said Thursday he does not think the US economy will enter a recession, despite the release of government data showing GDP shrunk in the first quarter of 2022.

“I’m not concerned about a recession,” Biden told reporters, pointing to jumps in consumer and business spending as well as low unemployment as bolstering his case that the economy is in good shape.
