(ConservativeInsider.org) – The longer President Joe Biden is in office, the more Americans see him flip-flopping on issues, stumbling over his words, and all-around failing to instill confidence in his leadership abilities. This past weekend was no different after Biden and his handlers attempted to reverse a veto threat he made at the end of last week.
Last week, Republican lawmakers announced they arrived at a deal with Democrats and President Biden over the infrastructure deal. However, on Thursday, June 24, President Biden was asked by reporters how he would get both bills through Congress, to which he replied “If they don’t come, I’m not signing it.” This veto threat practically nullified his agreement with Senate Republicans, upsetting and insulting them.
After the White House press team tried unsuccessfully to get the veto threat under control, Biden released a statement on Saturday, June 26. It declared that “the impression that I was issuing a veto threat on the very plan I had just agreed to, which was certainly not my intent.”
The Guardian shared the cautious optimism from Republicans after this statement:

After seeing yet another of Biden’s mishaps, many Americans are even more concerned about the president’s mental stability and who’s actually running this administration. If the president can’t stick to his word when it comes to his own infrastructure bill, how can he be trusted with negotiating with other nations?
