You could hardly call it a crowd.
The only trace of normalcy was a vendor or two,no stadium-sized monitors, no crush of cheering inauguration crowds,
Just small groups of Americans interested in what was happening down the street.
Congratulations, Mr President.
And the nations future is under President Biden.
I sincerely think hes got a huge task to clean up.
Terese Addington survived COVID.
Biden says his administration will vaccinate one hundred million people in his first one hundred days.
Im not sure that he can do all that promises,
but I have hope that he will,at least I have hope.
The new President is proposing a 1.9 trillion dollars stimulus plan to jump start the economy weighed down by the pandemic.
Frank Beal, a financial adviser from North Carolina, backs the move.
Inevitably we would rather feel to pay power,so eventually its all going to come.
But right now, theres enough stimulus to keep things kind of rocking.
On immigration, President Biden promptly sent Congress a proposed 8-year path to citizenship for an estimated 11 million undocumented immigrants.
They are people who are feeding us right now,
you know picking up our crops, work in all occupations.
Thats all that immigrants have done.
They will be building this country.
The same way that policy has been good by immigrants since day one.
I think hes going to give amnesty to people that they broke the law.
Thats terrible for any country.
On climate change:
The cry for survival concept planted itself, a cry that cant be any more desperate or any more clear.
Courtney Thomas welcomes Bidens rejoining of the Paris Climate Accord,
considering that were actually going to follow the scientists absolutely.
In fact, its a set of punches and how he feels absolutely.
These two hundred thousand flags fly for Americans who couldnt attend because of the pandemic.
Each of the states and territories is represented in unity.
Take a measure of me and my heart.
If you still disagree, so be it
Thats democracy. Thats America. The right to decent peaceably.
Unprecedented security, prompted by the Capitol right concerns Roy Wendell, a Trump supporter.
We are not getting new President,and that is it guys standing on the street with guns and razor wire behind them.
Thats whats like another thats other country thing.
Its not the America that I feel that we should be.
Bidens biggest challenge starts right now,
healing a nation from a viral pandemic and pandemic of partisanship.
