WATCH: Biden stirs debate after saying “there’s nothing we can do to change the trajectory of the pandemic in the next several months”

Urging Congress to pass more COVID relief, President Biden stirred debate by saying bluntly “there’s nothing we can do to change the trajectory of the pandemic in the next several months.”

One Twitter user wrote “This is absolutely NOT the inspiring message that should be sent with a vaccine available where almost a million front line workers and at risk elderly are receiving it daily. How are these people so damn bad at this?”

Another defended Biden as just being honest, replying “Truth telling. Vaccine won’t dent infection, hospitalization, deaths in next few months-too few vaccinations, too late to stop infections after reckless holiday gatherings (even understanding human reasons why). It would be like ignoring troop sacrifice on way to battle success.”

Another Twitter user wrote “But we were told he could fix it. I’m shocked!”

Phillipa Coleman replied “But..but..you said you had a plan to control it”

Another responded “It cannot be overstated how much catching up you have to do. The next few months of deaths are already locked in, because it takes time to fix a catastrophe. Jesus.”
