WASHINGTON, D.C. (WUNF) — The Biden-Harris administration pulled off a successful Fourth of July event on the South Lawn of the White House Sunday evening. The expanded in-house press pool, screened and tested for COVID-19 were escorted to the event on the South Lawn of the White House by White House Press Wranglers. The evening started off with President of the United States Joe Biden delivering remarks declaring independence from COVID-19. President Biden in his remarks said “Think about how far we’ve come, from silent streets to crowded parade routes lined with people waving American flags.” “Today, we are closer than ever to declaring our independence from a deadly virus.” “Happy Fourth of July America!” You can view pictures from the remarks here: https://twitter.com/KyleMazzaWUNF/status/1411833471090167816?s=20
