The Democratic President held a meeting with state Republican leaders.
US President Joe Biden and First Lady Jill Biden visited Texas, a state that has been severely affected by winter storms and power supply problems.
The President visited the mass vaccination center in Houston, assured Americans that anti-COVID vaccines are safe, and spoke about the progress made in the fight against the epidemic.
However, Biden urged not to lose vigilance because the incidence rate may increase due to coronavirus mutations: “There is no time for relaxation. We must continue to wash our hands, maintain social distance, and, for God’s sake, wear masks. This is not a political statement. This is an act of patriotism.”
Joe Biden visited the food aid distribution center and met with the volunteers working there.
The Democratic president also met with Republican Texas Governor Greg Abbott, who was criticized for the problems caused by the storm, and Republican Senator John Cornyn. The second senator from Texas, Ted Cruz, left Texas for Florida to attend the Conservative conference.
