Is this a true statement?

Not necessarily.  It might go faster if you were comparing a Python
built-in operation (coded in C) with something inefficiently coded in
C++.  But the statement that "Python can do everything C++" is true, but
a tautology. You can substitute nearly any language; Basic, C, Algol,
Lisp,... and it is still a true statement.
