Fact Check: Biden Claims He Didn’t Invite Migrants To The U.S. Border… He Actually Told Them To “Surge” There


In George Stephanopoulos’s very short interview with President Joe Biden – billed as “extensive,” “expansive,” and “wide-ranging” – the president denied the situation at the border, took a swipe at Americans who don’t “listen,” and bragged on his macho encounter with Vladimir Putin. Asked when Americans might return to normalcy, Biden had stern words for people who would ease up on COVID-19 mitigation measures and exercise their freedom to decline the vaccine. “I won’t be able to meet the July 4 deadline unless people listen,” Biden said. “I just don’t understand this sort of macho thing about, ‘I’m not gonna get the vaccine, I have a right as an American, my freedom to not do it.’ Well, why don’t you be a patriot, protect other people?” “How about emphasizing the positive?” Stephanopoulos jumped in, prompting Biden to share that since he got the vaccine, he can hug and spend time with his grandchildren.
