Biden shines on the town corridor by turning the web page on Trump and promising brighter days

President Joe Biden beamed in his first presidential town hall Tuesday night by turning the page to Donald Trump and telling the American people that hope is on the way.

Biden said while his administration inherited a vaccination problem from Trump, his team has now been given enough doses to vaccinate every American by the end of July.

In a personal moment during City Hall, the president even offered to help a mother get a vaccine for her son who has a lung disease.

“If you want, I’ll stay here after this is over and maybe we can talk for a few minutes and see if I can help,” Biden told the woman.

When asked when life will return to normal in the U.S., Biden was careful not to over-promise, but said he was optimistic that things will get a lot brighter in a year.

The only condition, Biden said, is that the American people must continue to be vigilant by wearing a mask and socially distancing themselves.

“These things are important,” said the president. “It can save many lives when we get to this point.”

At one point, Biden even referred to Trump as the “former man,” a clear indication that he has very little interest in discussing his shameful predecessor.

Biden’s appearance was a clear – and welcome – departure from the Trump days

At least Joe Biden’s Tuesday night appearance was a breath of fresh air just because he didn’t use the forum to provoke tantrums and attack his opponents.

But the president also painted an honest picture of where America currently stands on the pandemic and economic crisis as he outlined his plans to move beyond those challenges.

Joe Biden’s Town Hall was probably a nice change of pace for the American people after suffering from Donald Trump for four long years.
