(CNSNews.com) - "I'm not going to change direction," President Biden said several times at his post-election news conference.
He was responding to a reporter who noted that 75 percent of voters say the country is headed in the wrong direction: "What in the next two years do you intend to do differently to change people’s opinion of the direction of the country?" the reporter asked.
"Nothing," Biden said, "because they’re just finding out what we’re doing. The more they know about what we’re doing, the more support there is.
"Do you know anybody who wants us to get rid of the change we made on prescription drug prices and raise prices again?" Biden asked. "Do you know anybody who wants us to walk away from building those roads and bridges and — and the Internet and so on? I don’t — I don’t know any- —
"I think that the problem is the major piece of legislation we passed — and some of it bipartisan — takes time to be recognized."
Biden said much of his agenda "is just starting to kick in."
"It takes time to get it moving. So, I’m not going to change — as a matter of fact, you know there’s some things I want to change and add to...I’m going to ban assault weapons. They’re going to try like the devil — So, I’m not going to change the direction.
"I said I ran for three reasons. I’m going to continue to stay where I’m — and I know — I fully understand the legitimate concern that what I’m saying is wrong. Okay?
"One is that I said we’re going to restore the soul of the country, begin to treat each other with decency, honor, and integrity...Second thing I said is I want to build a country from the middle out and the bottom up...And the third thing — I know is still very hard — I’m going to do everything in my power to see through that we unite the country. It’s hard to sustain yourself as a leading democracy in the world if you can’t — can’t generate some unity.
"So, I’m not going to change anything in any fundamental way."
