President Joe Biden said that he would not change anything about his leadership, despite voters believing the country is headed in the wrong direction.
Biden was asked on Wednesday, “You mentioned that Americans are frustrated. And, in fact, 75 percent of voters say the country is heading in the wrong direction, despite the results of last night. What in the next two years do you intend to do differently to change people’s opinion of the direction of the country, particularly as you contemplate a run for President in 2024?
Biden responded, “Nothing.”

“Because they’re just finding out what we’re doing. The more they know about what we’re doing, the more support there is. Do you know anybody who wants us to get rid of the change we made on prescription drug prices and raise prices again? Do you know anybody who wants us to walk away from building those roads and bridges and — and the Internet and so on? I don’t — I don’t know any” said Biden.
I think that the problem is the major piece of legislation we passed — and some of it bipartisan — takes time to be recognized.
“For example, you got — you got over a trillion dollars’ worth of infrastructure money, but not that many spades have been put in the ground. It’s taking time.” he said
“So there’s a lot of things that are just starting to kick in. And the same way with what we’ve done in terms of environmental stuff. It takes time to get it moving.
“So, I’m not going to change — as a matter of fact, you know there’s some things I want to change and add to. For example, we had — passed the most bipartisan, we passed the most extensive gun legislation, anti- — you know, rational gun policy in 30 years. And — but we didn’t ban assault weapons. I’m going to ban assault weapons. They’re going to try like the devil —
“So, I’m not going to change the direction. I said I ran for three reasons. I’m going to continue to stay where I’m — and I know — I fully understand the legitimate concern that what I’m saying is wrong. Okay?
“One is that I said we’re going to restore the soul of the country, begin to treat each other with decency, honor, and integrity. And it’s starting to happen. People are — the conversations are becoming more normal, becoming more — more — how can I say it? — decent,” he concluded on the matter.
