Since Joe Biden was elected president in 2020, there has been little improvement, according to most people. The 46th president of the United States has faced numerous difficulties during his first term in office, including a global epidemic, a land war in Ukraine, a divisive government, and more. Dr. Jill Biden spoke about her husband’s “many hopes” during an appearance for the Democratic National Committee on Nantucket Island, Massachusetts, this past Saturday

“(Joe) had so many hopes and plans for things he wanted to do, but every time you turned around, he had to address the problems of the moment,” she told donors at the high-profile event for the Democratic Party. “He’s just had so many things thrown his way.”

Biden has had to deal with several issues in addition to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, including the overturning of Roe v. Wade and the withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan after previous administrations failed to do so during their terms.

Jill Biden’s remarks followed the release of a New York Times poll showing that 64 percent of Democrats would pick someone else for president in 2024 rather than Joe Biden.

“Who would have ever thought about what happened [with the Supreme Court overturning] Roe v. Wade? Well, maybe we saw it coming, but still, we didn’t believe it,” she stated. “The gun violence in this country is absolutely appalling. We didn’t see the war in Ukraine coming.”

According to a Monday poll from the New York Times and Siena College, 33 percent of Americans approved of President Joe Biden, while 13% thought America was on the right track as a nation.

“I know there are so many nay-sayers who say we’ll get slammed in the midterms. Okay. The Republicans are working hard. They stick together, for good or evil. So, we just have to work harder,” Jill stated.

Jill Biden’s efforts have been hampered by the challenges the country is confronting, but she has also faced difficulties as a result of these international issues.

“I was saying to myself, ‘Okay, I was Second Lady. I worked on community colleges. I worked on military families. I’ve worked on cancer.’ They were supposed to be my areas of focus. But then when we got [in the White House,] I had to be, with all that was happening, the First Lady of the moment.”

Jill Biden spoke while on a three-day visit to Nantucket, Massachusetts, which is located off the coast of the mainland. Meanwhile, her spouse was in the Middle East when she visited the holiday spot. After praising civil rights leader Raul Yzaguirre during a conference of UnidoUS, the First Lady has come under fire for making perplexing remarks.

“The First Lady apologizes that her words conveyed anything but pure admiration and love for the Latino community,” her press secretary Michael LaRosa wrote on Twitter.
