Joe Biden’s State of the Union: Details

Joe Biden’s State of the Union address was marked by elements in the midst of an election campaign in the United States.

President Joe Biden gave a State of the Union address with an election focus.

Joe Biden’s State of the Union address highlighting the government’s accomplishments over the past four years and looking ahead to the November elections.

U.S. President Joe Biden’s State of the Union address was a “clearly electioneering” address.

It largely promoted “the achievements of the government” reached in the last four years and with an eye on the November elections.

In the opinion of Jorge Martinez, spokesman for the conservative organization Iniciativa Libre, he considers that although Biden tried to speak of “achievements”, in his opinion, it was not so.

The US president aspires to be reelected in the November elections and, although the official nomination is still pending, Donald Trump will once again be his opponent in the presidential race.

During Joe Biden’s State of the Nation address Joe Biden did not explicitly mention Donald Trump’s name only referred to him as his “predecessor” or “my previous president.”

Accompanied by the Vice President, Kamala Harris, and the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Mike Johnson, US President Joe Biden regretted having received an economic situation “on the brink of the abyss”, although, according to him, he has been able to reverse it in these four years at the head of the White House.

“We have created 15 million new jobs in just three years and unemployment is at its lowest point in 50 years,” was part of Joe Biden’s State of the Nation address.


In this line, he referred to minorities, mentioning “Hispanics, African-Americans and Asian-Americans“, considering that, thanks to this scenario, they have been able to promote their own businesses.

“A record 16 million Americans are starting small businesses and each one is an act of hope, there is a historic growth of employment and the small business sector for African Americans, Hispanics and Asian Americans”, he stressed that “the racial wealth gap is the smallest in 20 years” and that “inflation has gone from 9% to 3% and continues to fall”.

In the opinion of the member of the Free Initiative, “the reality is that President Biden took over an economy that was growing at 6 %, with 1 % inflation”, something very different from the current panorama. “Now what we have is an economy growing at 1 %, with inflation at 4 %, it is almost the other way around”, commented the expert from the border city of McAllen, Texas.

Nevertheless, he assured that his intention is to “make college more affordable“, again alluding to minorities.

“Let’s continue to increase scholarships for working-class and middle-class families, and let’s increase our record investments in universities and institutions that serve Hispanics and other minorities,” he said.

In Joe Biden’s State of the Union address, he pledged to pursue a policy that does not separate families or ban people based on their religion. 

“Unlike my predecessor, on my first day in office I presented a comprehensive plan to fix our immigration system, secure the border and provide a path to citizenship for dreamers and much more,” he argued.

Another noteworthy fact is that during Joe Biden’s State of the Union address there was no mention of Venezuela, Nicaragua or other countries in the region, whose migrant flows that are entering through the southern border come from those countries.
