The Biden Agenda for Women

Joe Biden is going to build our country back better after this economic crisis and that includes ensuring we get closer to full inclusion of and equality for women.

Biden’s Statement on Trump’s Continued Failure to Control COVID-19

Originally published on Yet again this morning, President Trump attacked the CDC and the public health experts who should be guiding our response to COVID-19, saying that they “don’t know” what they’re talking about.

He said anyone who wants a test could get a test. He said the virus was under control. When it comes to the coronavirus, you can’t believe a word he says. It’s astonishing that [...]
