President Joe Biden held his first ever Presidential Town Hall last night where he discusses many topics facing the nation currently including COVID-19, the economy, and much more. The town hall was broadcasted on CNN.

Biden focused on the current vaccine distribution in the country. He also mentioned how time was wasted by the Trump administration as the vaccine was not rolled out fast enough to the public and how the pandemic was not handled properly. 

Biden suggested a sign of hope and normalcy as he stated that hopefully by next Christmas the country will be in a very different circumstance.

“So if that works that way, as my mother would say with the grace of God and the goodwill of the neighbors, that by next Christmas I think we’ll be in a very different circumstance God willing, than we are today,” Biden said, according to newsmax.com.
