On his first Presidents Day as President of the United States, President Joe Biden posted a video message calling for unity & a spirit of public cooperation.
Text tweeted alongside the video read, “The American story isn’t a story of presidents, it’s a story of the American people — a story of courage, character, strength, & resilience.” That was also at the opening of the video message he delivered.
Joe Biden’s brief — 1 minute, 29 seconds — missive had echoed of his inaugural speech & other recent public statements, particularly the line, “If we do it together as one nation, one people, one America, we will not fail. America never has.”
Another bit reminiscent of his inaugural: “I promise you, my whole soul is in the work ahead of us.”
The president Joe Biden also invoked predecessors who faced similar periods of great national disunity and strife: Lincoln, FDR, Kennedy and Johnson.
“I know we’ll get through this,” Mr President said in the clip, “because I know the story of this country. The American people have never, ever let this company down, given half a chance.”
