The First Lady, Jill Bidenexpressed this Saturday his frustration at the “stagnation” of the mandate of the president of the United States, Joe Biden, due to global problems that have caused “unforeseen crises”.
“[El presidente] I had so many hopes and plans for the things that I wanted to do, but every time you turned around, you had to address the problems of the moment,” said Jill Biden, during a private fundraiser for the Democratic National Committee, in Massachusetts, in statements collected by the CNN television channel.
The first lady commented that the decision on abortion by the Supreme Court, the war in Ukraine and the armed violence in the country are some of the problems that have made the president’s job difficult.
“He’s just had so many things come his way,” he said. “Who would have ever thought what happened (when the Supreme Court overturned) ‘Roe versus Wade’? Well, maybe we saw it coming, but we still didn’t believe it. Gun violence in this country is absolutely appalling. We didn’t see the war coming in Ukraine.”
These statements by the first lady have coincided with a drop in the US president’s approval ratings, reported ‘The Hill’. Recent polls have revealed that voters are not very enthusiastic about Biden’s 2024 presidential bid.
Likewise, Jill Biden said that she, too, has felt paralyzed in her role as first lady.
“I was like, ‘Okay, I’ve been second lady. I worked at community colleges. I worked in military families. I worked on cancer.’ They were supposed to be my areas of interest. But then when we arrived (at the White House) I had to be, with everything that was going on, the first lady of the moment, ”explained Jill Biden.
