President Biden pledged Friday that the United States is “fully committed” to NATO after four years of former president Donald Trump railing against the alliance. During a major address to the Munich Security Conference, Biden also warned that “democratic progress is under assault” in many parts of the world, including the United States and Europe.
On Friday afternoon, Biden traveled to Michigan, where he sought to reassure Americans about the safety of the coronavirus vaccine and took aim at Trump’s handling of the pandemic. “I can’t give you a date when this crisis will end, but I can tell you we’re doing everything possible to have that day come sooner rather than later,” Biden said in remarks after touring a coronavirus vaccine manufacturing plant.
