Joe Biden defended his presidency on Wednesday by bragging he has ‘outperformed’ expectations, slamming Republicans for working against with him and then saying some GOP lawmakers secretly have told him they’re on his side but too worried about a primary to publicly support him.

Speaking the day before his one-year anniversary in office, Biden started his first press conference in 78 days by tackling the two issues that are behind his falling poll numbers: the COVID pandemic and the record high inflation hurting the economy. The president’s approval rating has dropped to the low 40s as voters give him low marks on those two issues.

‘It’s been a year of challenges but also been a year of enormous progress,’ Biden said in his second solo press conference held in the White House.

However, he admitted he should have had more COVID tests ready for Americans and blamed the record-high inflation on the pandemic and the actions of the Federal Reserve.

But, he argued, he didn’t make too many promises to the American people when he entered the White House last year.

‘Look I didn’t over promise. But I have probably outperformed what anybody thought would happen,’ Biden said.

He argued that no other incoming president has faced as many issues as he had when he took office in January 2021.

‘Do you think of any president has done as much in one year? Name one,’ he said. ‘I don’t think there has been much on any incoming president’s plate that has been a bigger menu than the plate I have. I’m not complaining. I knew that. And the fact of the matter is, we got an awful lot done. An awful lot done.’
