WASHINGTON, D.C. – Americans in the nation’s capital assessed President Biden’s State of the Union speech on Tuesday. Most who spoke with Fox News approved of his address.
“Biden was awesome,” Craig told Fox News. “Couldn’t be better.”
But Antione disagreed, saying he hasn’t witnessed any accomplishments from the Biden administration.
“I haven’t seen anything yet,” he told Fox News. “We need better schools, we need better playgrounds, we need better people out here for our black community, for all of us.”
Biden delivered his second State of the Union speech on Tuesday, focusing on his economic achievements and future initiatives, such as an assault rifle ban. The president, for example, highlighted his administration’s signature infrastructure bill and efforts to promote job growth.
