Biden Accepts ‘there’s Talk of Disappointment’ About Things He ‘hasn’t Done’ and Announces $27b to Fix Bridges After His Terrible Week

President Joe Biden admitted on Friday that his agenda has stalled after his voting rights plan ended in tatters, but insisted he will still get things done as he announced plans to spend $27billion to fix thousands of bridges across the country.

‘There’s a lot of talk about disappointments and things we haven’t gotten done,’ he noted. ‘We’re gonna get a lot of them done, I might add,’ the president added.

He then reiterated that he was elected to ‘unite’ the country, after taking heat from Republicans who called his Tuesday speech about voting rights in Atlanta divisive.

The President asked Americans whether they wanted to be on the side of Martin Luther King and John Lewis or Bill Connor, George Wallace and Confederacy president Jefferson Davis.

His speech came at the end of a week where he saw his approval rating drop to 33 percent in a Quinnipiac poll, his vaccine mandate for private employers shot down in the Supreme Court and his bid to push voting rights bills through Congress scuppered by Democratic Senators Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema refusing to budge on killing filibuster.

Biden pivoted back to the $1.2trillion infrastructure bill he signed 60 days ago and vowed to kickstart his agenda as he reaches the one-year anniversary of the inauguration.

‘I ran for president to unite the country,’ he said. ‘This bipartisan infrastructure law I signed a few months ago unites us around things we all depend on.’

‘Whether you’re in rural Kentucky or downtown Philadelphia, you should be able to turn on the faucet and drink clean water,’ the president continued.
