On Tuesday (April 25) morning President Joe Biden officially announced his plans to run for President again in the 2024 election cycle.

However, his campaign briefing video does not mention any legislation he has signed.

The Biden campaign released a three-minute video that began with footage of the January 6, 2021, rally at the U.S. Capitol.

The video hits out at “MAGA extremists” across the country, saying they are “cutting Social Security,” “dictating what health care decisions women can make,” and “banning books.”

Tuesday’s video also echoes the President’s 2020 campaign message, explaining Biden will be fighting for “the soul of our nation,” protecting the middle class, and uniting the country.

Biden states that it isn’t the “time for complacency,” adding that this is the reason his “running for Reelection,” noting that he knows America and that Americans are “good and decent people.”

Biden continued that he understands that the nation still believes in “honesty and respect and treating each other with dignity,” and doesn’t harbor hatred.

However, what Biden didn’t say, spoke louder than what he did.

The President conspicuously left out an announcement about his signature legislative victory, the Inflation Reduction Act.

The IRA was a victory for the Democrats and was a $739 billion climate and tax bill that would allow the federal government to distribute over $350 billion in loans and grants to green energy projects nationwide.

The Biden campaign also decided to omit the $1.9 trillion bailout package for the United States during the COVID-19 pandemic, which economists warned would weaken the U.S. economy.

Biden also failed to mention his gun safety legislation that followed the 2022 school shooting in Uvalde, Texas.

Biden said the measure didn’t accomplish everything he wanted, and gun control advocates say it didn’t go far enough.
