On the eve of completing one hundred days of government, Joe Biden delivers his first speech this Wednesday (28) during the joint session of Congress. The President of the United States began his speech with a call for Americans to get vaccinated.
Biden also reinforced the successes that accompany a vaccination campaign that has gained momentum since taking office – today, anyone over 16 can now be vaccinated in the United States. Before the deadline, he kept his promise to apply 100 million doses scheduled for the first hundred days. It has doubled the target and 232 million injections have already been administered.
“After just a hundred days, I can tell the nation: The United States is on the move again, turning danger into possibility, crisis into opportunity, receding in force,” he said on the report. House prosecution, lawmakers get the rules of social distancing.
In the statement, Biden said he inherited “a nation in crisis,” with the worst pandemic of the century, the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression and, without naming former President Donald Trump, spoke of “the worst attack on our democracy since the civil war “.
