Posts misrepresent economic gains under Trump, Biden

Social media posts claim "middle-class incomes" increased by $6,000 under former president Donald Trump's policies and fell by $6,828 under President Joe Biden because of inflation. But available economic data fail to back the figures, no sources are cited in support of the claims, and wage growth in recent years is not even mentioned.
