The White House posted the transcript of the town hall on it’s website.
With Biden’s approval ratings falling, the president is desperate to change the direction of his presidency by going on a friendly cable network.
Unfortunately for Biden, his performance reinforced the concerns of many Americans about his policies and his ability to meet the demands of his job.
High gas prices and supply chain issues will continue to harm Biden going forward.
