A post, which was reportedly shared to but later deleted from White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre's X account, @PressSec, appears to have mistakenly omitted attribution of the comments to President Joe Biden. X is the social media platform previously known as Twitter.
"Investing in America means investing in ALL of America," the post on the press secretary's account read, according to screenshots. "When I ran for President, I made a promise that I would leave no part of the country behind."
The language closely reflects comments Biden made during a speech on Tuesday, but the post on the press secretary's account had not been attributed to the president.
Jean-Pierre, who identifies as gay, has been serving as Biden's press secretary for more than a year, taking over the role from Jen Psaki, who had previously served in the post.
Biden is aiming to clinch the Democratic presidential nomination again, and polling indicates that he is on track to easily do so. He is already the oldest president in U.S. history and would be 86 years old by the end of a second term.
Polling indicates that former President Donald Trump holds a decisive lead over all of the other GOP primary competitors. So it appears that Americans could see another Trump vs. Biden election matchup during the 2024 presidential contest.
Biden has been continuing to beat the drum for gun control.
"I AM DETERMINED TO BAN ASSAULT WEAPONS. I DID IT ONCE BEFORE, AND I'LL DO IT AGAIN," a Biden post on X declared. "It is within our power to once again ban assault weapons and high-capacity magazines, to require safe storage of guns, to end gun manufacturers' immunity from liability, and to enact universal background checks," the president's post also claimed.
