President Joe Biden on Wednesday bragged about the performance of U.S. stocks during his time in office, as he made a speech in honor of labor unions at the White House. "The stock market has gone up exponentially since I've been president. You haven't heard me say word about it," Biden said, in an apparent reference to former President Donald Trump's frequent comments about the stock market. The S&P 500 /zigman2/quotes/210599714/realtime SPX -1.44% has gained about 17% since Jan. 20, the day that Biden was inaugurated.
