Joe Biden ran for President on the promise that he would end the pandemic and defeat the coronavirus. This was unlike Trump, whom Biden believes should have been sent to prison.
Biden said that he waved the white flag to CNN’s Jake Tapper during an interview. He walked away. He did not do a damn thing. Think about it! It’s almost criminal!
Biden should be sentenced to life for Trump’s “almost criminal” response. He has consistently underperformed since the beginning of his presidency. Biden had promised that every American would receive COVID-19 at-home tests but failed to order 500 million tests necessary to make this a reality. The administration has now stated that the tests could be sent out by the end of the week.
Biden’s incompetence has been recognized by most of the country. With no signs of improvement, the president’s approval ratings continue to sink like a stone.
In a Quinnipiac University national survey conducted January 7-10, the president’s approval rating is just 33% and disapproval is at 53%. The poll was released Wednesday. Biden’s approval rating is now at 33%, and disapproval at 53%, respectively, according to Quinnipiac’s November survey.
The average of all national polls that measure President Obama’s standing, conducted by the polling site FiveThirtyEight shows Biden to be at 42% approval and 52% disapproval.
Quinnipiac polls show that the president is struggling to address three key issues: the economy (34%), foreign policies (35%), and the coronavirus pandemic (39%).
Biden’s reaction to the omicron spike is making Democrats furious. Democrats are the first politicians and seem to have been listening to their constituents.
Democratic Reps. Elissa Slotkin from Michigan and Tim Ryan from Ohio are asking President Biden for domestically made KN95 masks. They will be distributed to all American households that request them.
These would be funded with COVID-19 funds previously allocated.
Axios first saw the letter. The pair wrote that the country is at a “crossroads” with the coronavirus.
They write that they strongly urge the administration to seize the opportunity to prevent more deaths by using the substantial authority of the federal government to prioritize American-made masks or PPE.
The KN95 masks offer a significant improvement on the paper and cloth masks that are currently available. However, it is becoming clear that only a few masks can be more effective than the omicron variant. The Democrats’ proposal would amount to a huge waste of time, money, and effort.
One year into the Biden presidency, the United States still lacks tests, particularly the quick tests that western countries seem to be able to acquire. Biden complained about Trump’s incompetence.
A lack of rapid testing available, especially before the holidays, is another major concern that aides and members have highlighted. Changes in the guidance of the CDC are another problem.
Monday’s letter was signed by over 40 senators and members of the House to urge the president to increase COVID-19 rapid testing.
Jen Psaki, White House Press Secretary, admitted to reporters that the administration wasn’t where it needed to be in terms of testing supplies.
Later, a White House official cited the administration’s COVID-relief and vaccination efforts. He added: “We’re open about the challenges that we face and continue to address those with Congress. That’s why we’re encouraged by the praises we’ve received today on announcements while continuing to work to manage a once-in-a-generation pandemic.”
Democrats, including the president, are looking for any solution to the problem. Of course, it won’t. COVID will remain with us for a long time, and instead of doing what is necessary to make it bearable, such as increasing the availability of rapid testing and developing treatments, Biden continues to plow ahead, while the American people grow angrier.
