Tomorrow, the “Help Is Here” tour will continue with the President — with President Biden traveling to Columbus, Ohio, to highlight how the American Rescue Plan will help to lower healthcare costs. He will deliver remarks on the anniversary of the Affordable Care Act being signed into law — of course, something he had a major role in — and encourage Americans to sign up for insurance at HealthCare.gov during the special enrollment period his administration opened amid the pandemic.White House.gov. 03/22/2021.
Cleveland.com reported on Monday that Ohio Republican Governor Mike DeWine and First Lady Fran DeWine will greet President Biden at the airport. DeWine confirmed the meeting with President Biden at his coronavirus briefing.
The video is cued to DeWine’s comments regarding his meet and greet with President Biden.
President Biden finished his Monday adding 2 tweets to the already 1 tweet he had giving him a total of 3 tweets and zero retweets.
His second tweet for Monday was posted at 2:10 p.m. D.C., time where he repeats his thoughts from Friday following the mass shooting in Atlanta, Georgia.
On Friday as the News Blender explained the President and Vice President traveled to Georgia. The trip had been planned prior to the tragic mass shooting that left 8 dead, 6 of whom were of Asian descent. In light of the shooting the President and Vice President met with Georgia Asian American leaders.
In remarks given after the meeting President Biden said in part:
There are simply some core values and beliefs that should bring us together as Americans. One of them is standing together against hate, against racism — the ugly poison that has long haunted and plagued our nation.
But for all the good that laws can do, we have to change our hearts. Hate can have no safe harbor in America. It must stop. And it’s on all of us — all of us, together — to make it stop.White House.gov. 03/19/2021.
In his third tweet from Monday sent at 4:02 p.m. D.C., time he urges American’s to get vaccinated so we can return to our lives with our loved ones.
In Monday’s coronavirus update, the White House COVID-19 Response Team said that there was now a total of 81 million people or nearly 1 and 3 adults with at least one vaccine dose in the U.S..
This is just a note in case someone mentions the tone of his two tweets in light of the mass shooting that left ten dead, including one officer, in Boulder, Colorado on Monday.
If my time-zone math is right, the two tweets were sent before the Boulder Police Dept., tweeted at 2:49 p.m. Boulder time, (that would be 4:49 p.m. D.C., time) that there was an active shooter at King Scoopers.
So far there has been no statement released on White House.gov.. CNN’s Chief White House correspondent Kaitlin Collins reports that President Biden will address the public regarding the mass shooting.
