Earlier today, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki announced that Joe Biden would address the nation “about his robust plan to stop the spread of the delta variant and boost vaccinations.” Psaki explained that Biden’s hands were tied when it comes to implementing a mass vaccine mandate.
On Friday, Biden conveniently blamed the shocking jobs report on the Delta variant: “There’s no question the delta variant is why today’s jobs report isn’t stronger. I know people were looking, and I was hoping for a higher number. But next week, I’ll lay out the next steps that are going to — we’re going to need to combat the delta variant, to address some of those fears and concerns.”
He also talked about giving states more federal money to fight the Delta variant.
