Before taking office, President Biden set a bold goal of 100 million shots in his first 100 days.
After reaching the goal in just 58 days, he doubled it to 200 million.
And today, because of the hard work of people across the country, we officially reached it. https://t.co/WrLCwsCAb7
The guilty verdict does not bring back George Floyd. But through the family’s pain, they are finding purpose so George’s legacy will not be just about his death, but about what we must do in his memory. https://t.co/swjH0yprjN
Today, a jury in Minnesota found former Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin guilty of murdering George Floyd.
The verdict is a step forward.
And while nothing can ever bring George Floyd back, this can be a giant step forward on the march towards justice in America.
Imagine a future where we lead the world and tackle the threat of climate change with American jobs and ingenuity.
We can make that future a reality with the American Jobs Plan. https://t.co/JcraqYmsjz
Vice President Harris and I have been briefed on the mass shooting at a FedEx facility in Indianapolis. God bless the eight individuals we lost and their loved ones, and we pray for the wounded for their recovery.
We can, and must, do more to reduce gun violence and save lives.
I’m looking forward to welcoming my friend Prime Minister Suga to the White House this afternoon for the first foreign leader visit of my presidency — and to renewing the historic alliance between the United States and Japan.
We continue to make progress in our work to vaccinate as many adults in this country as we can. Our current 7-day daily average now stands at 3.3 million shots administered per day, up from 3 million at our last update. https://t.co/cXHbO2Ve6H
“When the will defies fear, when duty throws the gauntlet down to fate, when honor scorns to compromise with death — that is heroism.” — R.G. Ingersoll

Race should never determine health outcomes — and pregnancy and childbirth should be safe for all. But for too many Black women, safety and equity have been denied. This Black Maternal Health Week, our Administration is taking action to change that. https://t.co/9s33KmLSdv
Today I’m thinking about Daunte Wright and his family — and the pain, anger, and trauma that Black America experiences every day. While we await a full investigation, we know what we need to do to move forward: rebuild trust and ensure accountability so no one is above the law.
More than 112 million Americans have received at least one dose and more than 66 million adult Americans are now fully vaccinated.
That’s more than a quarter of all adult Americans who are now fully vaccinated, up from less than 1% when the President took office 11 weeks ago.
My Administration is taking initial steps to reduce gun violence, including:
- Stopping the proliferation of ghost guns
- Regulating pistols modified with a stabilizing brace
- Helping states adopt red flag laws
- Supporting community violence interventions
