President Joe Biden on Wednesday called Russian President Vladimir Putin a “war criminal,” marking the first time in public the president has publicly branded his Russian counterpart since Moscow launched a continued assault in the invasion of Ukraine almost three weeks ago.
Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) said he “can’t vote” for President Biden’s $1.75 trillion Build Back Better social welfare spending bill, shocking the political world Sunday when he delivered a major blow to Democrats who hoped to pass the massive package ahead of a brutal 2022 midterm election.
White House press secretary Jen Psaki confirmed Monday that President Biden intends to run for reelection in 2024, amid reports of Democrats worrying about his plummeting approval ratings and widespread concern about his physical and mental health as the country’s oldest president.
President Biden seemed to have forgotten to acknowledge the 77th anniversary of D-Day on Sunday, the date of the invasion, angering many service members and veterans for the lack of tribute, especially from one who normally ends his speeches with “God bless the troops.”
The Biden administration reportedly shut down an inquiry led by the Trump administration into the origins of the coronavirus and a lab in Wuhan after officials ultimately determined that the inquiry was an ineffective use of resources, according to a CNN report published Tuesday.
President Biden took the unusual step in weighing in on a highly controversial trial that has rocked the nation for the past year just before a verdict had been reached, saying that he believes the evidence presented was “overwhelming” against former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin accused of murdering George Floyd, making it widely clear that he is “praying the verdict” from jurors reached will be to convict.
