President of United States of americahandjob Joe Biden, celebrated the 200-day milestone of his government on social media and said that he brought the country’s economy back from the crisis triggered by COVID-19. The Democrats took office on January 20. With no public agenda this Sunday, the head of the White House took to Twitter to speak.
“In our first 200 days, we’ve got the economy back, vaccinated 165 million Americans, put checks in the pockets of millions, and more,” the president wrote on the social network. “We are rebuilding better every day – and are just getting started.”
This Friday, 6, Biden, during a press conference, celebrated employment growth in the United States. The country filled 943,000 jobs in July, according to data from the US Department of Labor. The unemployment rate fell from 5.9% to 5.4% during this period.
Biden took the opportunity to say his economic plan works, but warned of the risks posed by the delta version of the coronavirus and returned to rescue vaccinations as a prerequisite for the economy’s continued recovery.
“What is undeniable now is that the Biden plan is working. The Biden plan produces results and is moving the country forward,” he declared. The White House chief also highlighted the fiscal package approved in March, which called for sending emergency checks to families.
He also thanked Democratic and Republican senators who drafted the text of the $1 trillion infrastructure package now being processed in Congress. Later this week, the Senate opened a session to analyze the matter.
Job creation in the US in July was above the average of broadcast projections’ estimates, which indicated 900,000 new jobs. “My message today is not about celebration, it’s to remind us that we have to work very hard,” Biden said in Friday’s address.
According to Democrats, the country could “defeat” the delta variant, which is more contagious than the previous one, but it needs increased vaccination. So he asked Americans who had not yet been vaccinated to take a dose.
