WATCH: Americans need the truth to beat COVID, Biden says

When President Joe Biden campaigned in Philadelphia last summer, he asked a woman what she needed the most. “I just want the truth,” he recalled her saying, as he gave a March 11 address marking the anniversary of the global pandemic. Biden said the nation was owed nothing less than the truth. “We know what we need to do to beat this virus … follow the scientists and the science. Work together.” He urged the country to put faith in the government’s most important function — protecting the American people. “The government isn’t some foreign force in a distant capital. No, it’s us, all of us.”
