President Biden (19:16): You do so much and you ask for so little. You know, our experience is a fraction of what so many of you and your families have gone through — a family like Brittney and her kids. You’re the absolute best America has to offer: our heart, our honor, your solid steel spine. So my message to all of you is quite simply: Thank you. Thank you. Not “thank you for your service” — just thank you for who you are, because it’s contagious. Thank you for choosing a selfless service to your country.
He shares a video clip from his YouTube town hall with Brave Wilderness, Jackie Aina, and Manny Mua, YouTube influencers to talk about the importance of getting vaccinated.
The next video clip he shares is from remarks he gave regarding the economy.
President Biden (10:27): Before I took office, the average initial claims for unemployment insurance were over 830,000. This morning, we learned that number has fallen below 460,000 — cut in half the — and we’re at the lowest level we’ve seen since March 2020 when the pandemic first struck. Before I took office, almost 24 million Americans were going hungry. Marcy has heard me say this before: Did you ever think you’d see people lined up for miles and miles and miles, going into a stadium to get someone to put a box of food in their trunk? People who never ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever thought they’d need that kind of help. Well, that number of hungry Americans — food-starved Americans — has dropped by 30 percent. Still too many, but there’s clear progress. Before I took office, independent experts were projecting that our economy would grow at 3 to 4 percent in the year 2021. But they’re now projecting that growth will be 6 percent or higher in 2021 — the fastest growth in this country in 40 years.
