Press Release


WASHINGTON, DC – Today, as Joe Biden was sworn in as the 46th President of the United States of America, Rep. Hakeem Jeffries issued the following statement: 

“Today marks a day of great renewal in America. As we confront a once-in-a-century pandemic and economic crisis, the inauguration of Joe Biden as the 46th President represents a beacon of hope. It is a signal to every American as well as our allies abroad that brighter days are ahead in the United States of America.

In a time marked by chaos, crisis, confusion and corruption, President Joe Biden and his partner in the White House, Vice President Kamala Harris, will restore the values that we hold sacred as Americans. President Biden is going to bring confidence. He is going to bring integrity. He is going to bring leadership. He is going to bring unity to the Oval Office because we don’t have Democratic problems or Republican problems. We don’t have progressive problems, moderate problems, centrist problems or conservative problems. We have American problems and President Biden is committed to solving them.

House Democrats are excited and looking forward to continuing our work with President Biden and Vice President Harris to Build Back Better For The People and make life better for everyday Americans. Together, we will crush the virus, provide direct relief to everyday Americans who are struggling and supercharge our economy so that we can create prosperity in every single zip code. That’s what the American people want. That’s what they deserve, and that’s what the House Democratic Caucus is going to work to achieve.”
