President Biden has tweeted 2 times so far for Thursday.
I’m gonna have to do more research on this topic. I’m having no luck “Googling” a straight answer. However, I did add up Archived Jobs Reports for the same-same time frame and it does appear as of now, that President Biden has “created” more jobs in his first months in Office versus Twice Impeached 45 did in his first months in Office.
Doesn’t really matter at this point if I include it down thread or not. The salesman tweets are all the same.
President Biden remarks are now scheduled for 12:30 p.m. D.C., time.
When Biden Bits was published for Wednesday, President Biden had tweeted 3 times. He added 10 tweets giving him a Wednesday Tweeting Total of 13 tweets and 0 retweets.
2 of his added 10 times focus on things not supply chain related or his Build Back Better agenda!

After working closely with my team, the Port of Los Angeles is announcing today that it will begin operating 24 hours 7 days a week — which follows the Port of Long Beach’s commitment.— President Biden (@POTUS) October 13, 2021
A 24/7 system is what most of the leading countries operate on. Except us. Until now.
Here’s why it matters: By staying open 24/7, the Port of Los Angeles will be open over 60 extra hours a week.— President Biden (@POTUS) October 13, 2021
That means an increase in the hours for workers to be moving cargo off ships and onto trucks and railcars to get to their destinations.
By increasing the number of late-night hours of operation — and opening up for less-crowded hours when goods can move faster — today’s announcement has the potential to be a game changer.— President Biden (@POTUS) October 13, 2021
President Biden: After weeks of negotiation and working with my team and with the major union and retailers and freight movers, the Ports of Los Angeles — the Port of Los Angeles announced today that it’s going to be — begin operating 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This follows the Port of Long Beach’s commitment to 24/7 that it announced just weeks ago. Twenty-four/seven system — what most of the leading countries in the world already operate on now, except us, until now. This is the first key step toward moving our entire freight transportation and logistical supply chain, nationwide, to a 24/7 system. And here’s why it matters: Traditionally, our ports have only been open during the week — Monday through Friday — and they’re generally closed down at nights and on weekends. By staying open seven days a week, through the night and on the weekends, the Port of Los Angeles will open — over 60 extra hours a week it will be open. In total, that will almost double the number of hours that the port is open for business from earlier this year. That means an increase in the hours for workers to be moving cargo off ships and onto trucks and railcars to get to their destination. And more than that, the night hours are critical for increasing the movement of goods because highways — highways are less crowded in the evening — at night. In fact, during off-peak hours in Los Angeles, cargo leaves the port at a 25 percent faster pace than during the day shift. So, by increasing the number of late-night hours of operation and opening up for less-crowded hours when the goods can move faster, today’s announcement has the potential to be a gamechanger.
President Biden: We need to invest in making more of our products right here in the United States. Never again should our country and our economy be unable to make critical products we need because we don’t have access to materials to make that product.
President Biden: We need to think big and bold. That’s why I’m pushing for a once-in-a-generation investment in our infrastructure and our people with my infrastructure bill and my Build Back Better Act. These bills would transfor- — transform our ports — there’s million- — billions of dollars for ports, highways, rail systems that sorely need upgrading — and would bring products faster and more efficiently from the factories, to the store, to your house.
President Biden: And with the holidays coming up, you might be wondering if the gifts you planned to buy will arrive on time. Well, let me explain: “Supply chains” essentially mean how we make things and how the material and parts get delivered to factory — a factory so we can manufacture things and manufacture them here; how we move things — how a finished product moves from a factory, to a store, to your home. And today, we have an important announcement that will get things you buy to you, to the shelves faster.

This is the first key step toward moving our entire freight transportation and logistical supply chain, nationwide, to a 24/7 system.
President Biden: Strengthening our supply chains will continue to be my team’s focus. If federal support is needed, I will direct all appropriate action. And if the private sector doesn’t step up, we’re going to call them out and ask them to act. Because our goal is not only to get through this immediate bottleneck, but to address the longstanding weaknesses in our transportation supply chain that this pandemic has exposed.
The daily press briefing is scheduled for 1:00 p.m. D.C., time.
