Hanks features Biden's 'optimistic' one-year video, despite dreadful polls
The Biden Inaugural Committee launched a one-year video narrated by Tom Hanks, in which he expresses optimism "about America's future," however, Biden's poll results tell another story.
The White House has released a new video narrated by Tom Hanks commemorating Biden's first year as President.
Biden was sworn in as President last January 20, and he met with cabinet members yesterday to implement a $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill he passed in November.
Biden announced that the nation has "never fully made this kind of investment," claiming he got "a lot done" in the face of the Covid pandemic.
Despite the video in which Hank says he has never been more optimistic about America's future, Biden's poll results tell a whole different story as they are only getting worse.
According to new NBC and AP-NORC polls, 54-56% of Americans disapprove of Biden's performance.
The figures suggest a crushing defeat for Democrats in the November midterm elections. During a news conference on Wednesday, Biden said " I don't believe the polls."
In the video, ordinary people like a UPS driver express that their "fear is gone," and Hanks says America is "strong, courageous, and resilient."
Living in the 1970s
American University Professor and eminent historian, Peter Kuznick, told Sputnik that despite Biden's heart being "in the right place," he just isn't a "strong leader," adding that Biden hoped Republicans and conservatives would compromise with him. In that regard, Kuznick said," He is still living in the 1970s."
On the domestic front, Kuznick believes Biden was dealt an incredibly weak hand and has played it horribly, adding that the President had little room for mistakes, considering how divided the House and Senate are.
According to Kuznick, the President has made no progress on voting rights, police reform, or his "Build Back Better" package, adding that his efforts to combat climate change "have largely been frustrated as well."
Although his efforts have been immense surrounding Covid, the problem remains just as serious as it was when he first took office, according to Kuznick.
Biden's ties with Russia and China, according to Kuznick, reached hazardous lows, with insults coming from US officials that were unprecedented even during the Cold War.
In addition, the US military withdrawal from Afghanistan was deemed a chaotic disaster that harmed the US reputation across the world.
"Biden’s foreign policy has been deplorable. His confrontational stance toward Russia and China has backfired. He has taken the bad situation he inherited from Trump and, in many ways, made it worse. The United States now is closer to war with Russia and China than it has been in 60 years," he said, adding that the chances of war over Taiwan and Ukraine have been greatly increased.
According to him, the more he listens to Blinken, Sullivan, and Nuland, the worse he will be. "This trio has no credibility on the world stage," adding that they "believe in American exceptionalism and unipolarity, but the world has passed them by."
