Current President of the United States mentioned management “victories”, while next White House occupant focused on prospects

O president of the United States, Donald Trump, and the future White House occupier, president-elect Joe Biden, sent New Year messages to the American population on Thursday, 31. The tone of the messages, however, was quite different between the two. While Trump mentioned government victories, Biden focused on prospects starting in 2021.

In video posted on Twitter, Trump claimed to have achieved “historic victories” throughout the year, with emphasis on the rapid development of the vaccine against covid-19. “We need to be remembered for what has been done,” he said. The current US president is in Washington, where he returned after a stint at his Florida resort.

Trump made a point of saying that the U.S. produced the vaccine in record time and that he was sure that it would be possible even in 2020, even if everyone doubted it. “We were told it would be impossible, but we did it”, he celebrated. “To defeat the Chinese virus, we launched the biggest mobilization since World War II,” he said.
