3. I'm so proud and glad to have this man as our president

 

This is how an ally and a friend speaks and acts.

Thank you for being in our corner, President Biden. Thank you for your strong support and continuing to speak and fight on our behalf. Thank you for signing this executive order - I know there is more to be done, but that would take the House and Senate to make it happen. But this order is a huge step and very much appreciated.
