Biden’s tweet about his optimism for America prompts immediate response: ‘Jesus take the wheel’ IG News

IG News Updates,

Several people took to Twitter Friday evening to criticize President Biden after he tweeted about serving another two years in the White House.

“Two years in, and I’ve never been more optimistic about America’s future,” Biden said on the two-year anniversary of his inauguration, which was January 20, 2021.

But people who responded to the post didn’t share the president’s enthusiasm.

“Well that makes one of us,” replied one user.

Comedian Tim Young demurred: “Gas is up 40 cents from last month and eggs are $9.”

Another tweet said, “You’re not even awake. Put the phone down, intern.”

Another user commented: “After two years, I’d say there’s only one direction you’ve got to go at this point.”

“Jesus take the wheel,” said another.

Despite the president’s optimism, he remains widely unpopular in most opinion polls.

The president fares somewhat better in other polls, though is unable to break beyond the low-40s.

FiveThirtyEight’s presidential approval tracker has the president approved by 43.4 percent of Americans.

The president’s handling of the economy, continued spending in Ukraine, failure to secure the US-Mexico border, relentless attacks on gun rights, and the discovery of classified documents at his Delaware home have drawn ire from his critics in recent months.

The president and the White House have said that Biden will seek re-election in 2024, although he has not officially announced his candidacy for re-election. Such an announcement is expected and could come as early as next month.

At 80, Biden is the oldest person in US history to serve as president.

According to Representative James Clyburn of South Carolina, he is unlikely to face a primary opponent if he chooses to run.
