US President Joe Biden defended his $ 1,900 billion rescue plan for the US economy in the face of the repercussions of the Covid-19 epidemic.
“You have to spend now, hit hard,” Biden said from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, in the north of the United States, during a forum to answer citizens’ questions.
He stressed that in the face of the repercussions of Covid-19, we must proceed quickly, stressing that his plan, which he wishes to be adopted without waiting for a hypothetical consensus in Congress, will create “7 million jobs this year.”
The White House has consistently confirmed that opinion polls show that a majority of Americans are behind the new president on this issue, and Joe Biden said, “69 percent of Americans support my plan!” “The country is not divided as much as what is being talked about,” he added.
In response to a question about the current progress in the vaccination campaign, Biden expected that “600 million doses” will be available by the end of July, that is, enough “to vaccinate all Americans.”
As for returning to normal life, he said, “By Christmas, we will be in a completely different situation from the current situation.”
