During his State of the Union address, President Biden spoke directly to the American people about his work driving the greatest comeback in the world and the inflection point we’re now at. Millions of people across our country saw that the choice they have this November is between an America where everyone gets a fair shot and our freedoms and democracy are protected or Donald Trump’s self-serving, hate-fueled America with less freedoms and more division.
