This is one of those tweets that the text appears in the remarks, but not in the same order…

President Biden: Look, every American and every child should be able to turn on a faucet, drink clean water, which will also create thousands of good-paying jobs for plumbers, pipefitters, and the folks digging those channels.

President Biden: We’re also going to start to replace the 100 percent — all 100 percent of lead water pipes and service lines going into our homes and our schools.  (Applause.)

President Biden: It also has been a problem for decades.  But with an $18 million investment from the Army Corps of Engineers and the help of Maggie and Chris, the port — and union labor — we widened that turning basin to 1,200 feet.  We got it done.  (Applause.) Now it’s easier, faster, and cheaper, and safer for ships to get in and out. And the port can welcome larger ships with more cargo, like the massive towers and hubs needed to — for offshore wind farms.

In personal news:

My parents and brothers, are now fully vaccinated. The parents because their doctor made them. The brothers cause they want jobs–their jobs require travel to Canada; that meant vaccinate or no work for them.

I don’t care about the reasons, I’m just thankful they are vaccinated.

President Biden has tweeted 5 times for Wednesday. 

The above tweeted text comes from the remarks he gave yesterday that are posted above.

President Biden: Look, we’ve made a lot of progress, and we have an incredible opportunity ahead of us.  But we know what families are still struggling with higher prices.  I grew up in a family where the price of gasoline went up at the pump, it was a discussion at the kitchen table.  Because my dad — he was a good man, made a decent living, but always on the margins.  Everything mattered. So let’s be absolutely clear about why we have such high prices now.  There are two reasons.  First was COVID.

President Biden: And the second big reason for inflation is Vladimir Putin.  Not a joke.  Putin’s invasion of Ukraine has driven up gas prices and food prices all over the world. 

President Biden: Well, we saw the most recent inflation data.  Last month, about 70 percent of the increase in inflation was a consequence of Putin’s price hike because of the impact on gas and energy prices. I’m doing everything I can to bring down the price to address Putin’s price hike.  That’s why I authorized the release of 1 million barrels per day for the next six months for our st- — from our Strategic Petroleum Reserve. And I know the press is always asking me, with good reason, why I’m always on the phone talking with other world leaders, trying to keep them organized.  Well, one of the things I did — I went out and got a lot of other countries to agree that they would release petroleum from their oil reserves. So, we worked with the U.S. oil producers to ramp up the production — (applause) — and we coordinated this release with partners and allies around the world.  And shortly after I made the announcement, another 30 countries agreed to 60 million additional barrels a day on the market. 

President Biden: Beyond gas prices, I’ve called on Congress to move immediately to lower the cost of family utility bills, prescription drug bills, and more, while lowering the deficit and reducing inflation.  That would make a big difference for families.  We can do a lot of these things without raising a single penny on taxes of anyone making less than $400,000 a year.  Nobody making less than $400,000 will see a single penny in their taxes raised.

President Biden: So, look, we’re making progress.  Over the course of my presidency, our recovery so far has created 7.9 million new jobs — (applause) — more jobs — more jobs created over the first 14 months than any President ever.  Over 420,000 manufacturing jobs. Unemployment rate is at 3.6 percent, down from 6.4 percent.  In the state of New Hampshire, you’re down from — I think it’s 4.2 percent to 3.2 [sic] percent.

As we continue toward the end of the month, we can except more tweets praising the economy; it’s not random–it’s trying to get ahead of any bad news contained in April’s Jobs Report.

The daily press briefing is scheduled for 3:00 p.m. D.C., time.

Yahoo has a live feed of the pool spray. It is scheduled for 4:00 p.m. D.C., time.
