PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA (UNF NEWS) – President of the United States Joe Biden and Vice President of the United States Kamala Harris embraced and joined hands on stage at the DNC Winter Meeting in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on February 3, 2023. Vice President of the United States Kamala Harris and President of the United States Joe Biden spoke to the audience at the Democratic National Committee’s Winter Meeting in Philadelphia. U.S. President Joe Biden told the crowd that everyone needed to come together, as a nation. President Joe Biden explained his viewpoints that the middle class built the United States of America and not wall street. President Joe Biden commented on Republicans in his speech and said: “this is not your father’s Republican Party. No, really, think about it. These aren’t conservatives, these aren’t conservatives. These are disruptive people. They intend to destroy the progress we made.”
“If Republicans want to work together to find real solutions to grow manufacturing jobs; to build the strongest economy in the world and keep it that way, which we are now; where Americans are paid a fair wage; make their wealth and begin to pay their share of taxes, I’m ready. I’m ready. I’m not going to let anyone use the full faith and credit of the United States as a bargaining chip”, President Biden said.
Applause was heard in the crowd when the President mentioned that he wants to ban “assault weapons”, and magazines in the wake of the rise of mass shootings around the United States. Citizens who reject the President’s proposal cite the Second Amendment and the right to bear arms, and discern that the weapon is not the issue and it is the person that holds the gun and pulls the trigger.
