When Biden Bits was posted for Tuesday, President Biden had not tweeted. He ended up with a Tuesday Tweeting Total of 9 tweets and 0 retweets.

The YouTube is 31 minutes and 8 seconds long. His full remarks can be found here.

President Biden: Today, I’m announcing that the Environmental — and I don’t think it’s much of an announcement; it’s already broken out pretty much the last 24 hours — but the Environmental Protection Agency is planning to issue an emergency waiver to allow E15 gasoline that uses more ethanol from homegrown crops to be sold across the United States this summer in order to increase fuel supply.  (Applause.) 

President Biden: Putin’s invasion of Ukraine has driven up gas prices and food prices all over the world.  The two-est [sic] largest grain producers in the world, China and — excuse me — Ukraine and Russia, are not going what they usually do, so everything is going up. We saw it in today’s inflation data: Seventy percent of the increase in prices in March came from Putin’s price hike in gasoline.

President Biden: To help deal with this Putin price hike, I’ve authorized the release of 1 million barrels per day for the next six months from our Strategic Petroleum Reserve. This is by far the largest release of our national reserve in history.  It’s a wartime bridge to increase oil supply as we work with U.S produc- — oil producers to ramp up their production this year.

President Biden: And that helped stop the run-up of oil prices that have begun to bring prices down a little bit as a result of countries acting together to release these reserves. And Americans should be seeing the savings.  And we’re not just learning and leaning on our reserves or our allies and partners to help bring down gas prices and to power the nation.  We’re leaning on you, our farmers, our biofuel refiners.

President Biden: So we’re investing up to $1 billion of the American Rescue funds for new and expanded meat and poultry processing capacity throughout this country.  (Applause.)

President Biden: We’re going to invest in innovative new products and processors, small businesses, independent businesses — the lifeblood of our economy.  It’s going to give farmers and ranchers more options to shore up a weak point in our food supply chain and bring down prices for American families.

President Biden: We want to see facilities like this all over the Midwest, and here’s why: First, it supports farms.  It supports farmers and the farm economy.  You know, everybody thinks Delaware is a big industrial state, a banking state — and DuPont.  We have a $4 billion industry — it’s called agriculture — in Delaware.  And it’s mostly — we have more chickens in Delaware — broilers — chickens than you have in the entire Midwest, I think.

President Biden: We’re also investing in universal, affordable high-speed Internet.  I was surprised at this number, I have to tell you: Sixteen percent of Iowa households don’t have an Internet sub- — subscription. In some places, there’s no high-speed Internet infrastructure at all.  Zero in this state.  And the [Infrastructure] law will make high-speed Internet affordable and available everywhere in Iowa.

I don’t have enough free gift articles remaining to share from the New York Times, so instead I’m going to post some of their tweets regarding the shooting that took place yesterday morning.

This morning the person of interest Frank James has been upgraded to “suspect” according to New York Mayor Eric Adams.

In the below clip James was still considered a “person of interest” when the spot aired.
