This week, @POTUS and I quickly got to work to mount an aggressive and coordinated response to combat COVID-19 and get it under control—including establishing the COVID-19 Health Equity Task Force to ensure our response and vaccine distribution reaches everyone.
Today I met with an inspiring group of small business owners. We know that they have been hit hard in this pandemic. That’s why @POTUS and I are taking immediate action to help small businesses – because they power our economy, and they need relief.
Today, I spoke by phone with @WHO Director-General Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus. We discussed how the United States will work as a constructive partner to strengthen and reform the WHO—which will be a vital step to controlling COVID-19.
Earlier today, I swore in our first Cabinet member, Avril Haines, after her confirmation by the Senate last night. As the Director of National Intelligence, Director Haines will be dedicated to keeping the American people safe.
Thank you California—it has been an honor serving as your senator for the past four years. Our country has faced many challenges, but I remain certain that our best days are ahead. I promise to keep standing up for our shared values as your Vice President.
As I reflect on the past four years, I can't help but think of Congressman John Lewis' powerful words, "Do not get lost in a sea of despair. Be hopeful, be optimistic. Our struggle is not the struggle of a day, a week, a month, or a year, it is the struggle of a lifetime.”
