President Biden addressed many Americans’ concerns during his CNN’s town hall event in Cincinnati. Among the array of topics attendees questioned the president about, one of the most sought-after answers was his outlook on the filibuster and the protection of voting rights. A Black couple asked President Biden what he plans to do to reassure Black people the vaccine is safe. That conversation led to a discussion about U.S. citizens’ general mistrust in the system and what the Biden administration can do to fix it. When asked about increasing the passage of police reform legislation, President Biden spoke on the state of policing in the nation. He also addressed inflation of prices and what he will do to protect the poor and middle class from its effects.

Listen up and listen well Pres. Joe Biden, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi … If African Americans don’t have the ability to vote because our voting rights have been trampled and decimated by Republicans, your agenda is sunk and as Dr. Wes Bellamy, Chair of Advocacy, 100 Black Men of America, Inc said on #RolandMartinUnfiltered, “You deserved to get sacked.”
