JUST WAVE.

WE USED TO CALL IT A SLOW ROLL

WHEN WE SAW REPORTERS LIKE

YOURSELF STILL DOING LIVE SHOTS.

ITS CLEAR THAT THE

COMMUNICATIONS TEAM HAD A PLAN

FOR THE WEEK AND IT INCLUDED

LAYING DOWN THESE FOUNDATIONS OF

WHAT HIS PRESIDENCY IS GOING TO

BE ABOUT.

TODAY THE FIRST SPEEFRP FROM A

LONG DECADES LONG MEMBER THE

SENATE FOREIGN RELATIONS

COMMITTEE AND ONE TIME VICE

PRESIDENT PUTTING HIS STAMP ON

FOREIGN POLICY AND THIS FORCEFUL

SPEECH MAKING CLEAR THAT HE WAS

LEFT, YOU KNOW, NADA AND IS

WORKING EVERY DAY VERY

AGGRESSIVELY TO FILL THE

STOCKPILES OF VACCINES.

>> Reporter: YEAH, NICOLE, AS I

WAS TALKING TO A WHITE HOUSE

OFFICIAL LAST WEEK DURING THAT

IMPEACHMENT TRIAL, THERE WAS A

LOT OF TALK, OF COURSE, ABOUT

THEIR COUNTER-PROGRAMMING

STRATEGY.

BUT THEY ALWAYS KNEW THEY

WERENT GOING TO NECESSARILY

BREAK THROUGH WITH THE COVERAGE

OF THE TRIAL.

THEY THOUGHT IT WAS IMPORTANT TO

HAVE THOSE PICTURES, THOSE

MOMENTS OF HIM IN THE OVAL

OFFICE MEETING WITH BUSINESS

LEADERS, MEETING WITH BIPARTISAN

SENATORS, TALKING ABOUT

INFRASTRUCTURE, MEETING WITH

MAYORS AND GOVERNORS TALKING

ABOUT THE RELIEF PLAN.

THEY WERE EYING THIS WEEK AS A

REALLY CRITICAL WEEK TO

REESTABLISH HIS PRESIDENCY

REMINDING THE COUNTRY OF WHO WAS

NOW THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED

STATES.

YOU SAW HIM LEAVING WASHINGTON

TO DO SO ON TUESDAY IN A FORUM

THAT SERVED HIM WELL DURING THE

CAMPAIGN, THAT TOWN HALL EVENT

IN WISCONSIN.

TODAY ALL AT ONCE CAPTURING THE

DOMESTIC AND THE FOREIGN POLICY

CHALLENGES THAT HEIS INHERITING

WITH A SERIES OF EVENTS, THE G7

MEETING AS WELL AS THE ADDRESS

TO THE MUNICH SECURITY FORUM AND

THEN HERE YOU SAW HIM IN

MICHIGAN, ONE OF THE MOST

HARD-FOUGHT BATTLEGROUND STATES,

DOING TWO THINGS.

ONE IS TAKING A MEASURE OF

CREDIT FOR THE PROGRESS THEY

HAVE MADE.

NOW, YOU KNOW ITS ALWAYS A

DANGEROUS THING TO DO FOR ANY

WHITE HOUSE TO TAKE TOO MUCH

CREDIT BEFORE THE AMERICAN

PEOPLE IS READY TO DISH IT OUT.

BUT HE DID THINK IT WAS

IMPORTANT TO REESTABLISH WHAT

THE SITUATION HE WAS, THAT HE

INHERITED FROM THE FORMER GUY AS

HE PUT IT THE OTHER DAY.

THE LAST TIME HE WAS HERE IN

MICHIGAN WAS ON HALLOWEEN WHEN

HE WAS CAMPAIGNING WITH FORMER

PRESIDENT OBAMA.

HE KNEW THAT TACKLING THE

PANDEMIC WOULD BE THE BIGGEST

CHALLENGE THE WAY HIS PRESIDENCY

WOULD BE MEASURED, BUT HE DIDNT

KNOW QUITE AS BAD AS THE

SITUATION WITH THE VACCINATIONS

THAT HE WAS GOING TO BE

INHERITING. HE HAD TO ESTABLISH THAT, TALK

HE HAD TO ESTABLISH THAT, TALK

ABOUT THE STEPS HE HAS TAKEN,

ESPECIALLY THE DEFENSE

PRODUCTION ACT TO ENABLE PFIZER

TO RAMP UP PRODUCTION THAT HE

CAN SET THAT GOAL OF JULY HAVING

ENOUGH VACCINE SUPPLY FOR THE

ENTIRE COUNTRY TO GET

VACCINATED.

BUT THEN CONTINUING THAT VERY

IMPORTANT SALES PITCH.

HE NEEDS TO GET THAT COVID

RELIEF PLAN PASSED.

WE WILL SEE IT MAYBE HIT THE

FLOOR AT THE END OF NEXT WEEK.

SO HE WAS CHALLENGING THE

REPUBLICANS, TELL ME WHATS TOO

BIG ABOUT THIS PACKAGE.

IS IT TOO BIG TO EXTEND

UNEMPLOYMENT INSURANCE?

IS IT TOO BIG TO FUND THE

VACCINATION PROGRAM, THE TESTING

THAT IS STILL NEEDED?

THE WHITE HOUSE REALLY DOES

BELIEVE THAT THIS IS A

BIPARTISAN PLAN AND YOU HEARD

HIM MAKE THAT ARGUMENT HERE IN A

BATTLEGROUND STATE THAT, WHILE

REPUBLICANS IN WASHINGTON MAY BE

AGAINST THIS, THE OVERWHELMING

MAJORITY OF THIS COUNTRY ASK

WITH HIM AND THEY WANT TO

CONTINUE TO SUSTAIN THAT

MOMENTUM AND THATS WHAT YOU SAW

THIS WEEK, NICOLE.

>> I WANT TO PLAY A PIECE OF

SOUND FROM THIS MORNING AND THEN

I WILL PROMISE YOU CAN TAKE

SHELTER SOMEWHERE WARMER.

THIS SEEMED LIKE THE JOE BIDEN

THAT YOU HAVE COVERED FOR A VERY

LONG TIME, GETTING BACK TO WHAT

I THINK HIS FOLKS WOULD SAY IS

THE CENTERPIECE OF HIS FOREIGN

POLICY, GETTING BACK TO BASK,

WHICH IS WHAT HIS ANNOUNCEMENT

SPEECH WAS GO WHEN HE SAID HE

WAS GOING TO RUN TO RESTORE THE

SOUL OF THE COUNTRY.

PART OF THE SPEECH TODAY TO THE

MUNICH CONFERENCE ABOUT

RESUPPORTING

RESTORING AND ACKNOWLEDGING HOW

FRAGILE OUR DEMOCRACY STILL IS.

>> HISTORIANS ARE GOING TO

EXAMINE AND WRITE ABOUT THIS

MOMENT AS AN INFLECTION POINT,

AS I SAID.

AND I BELIEVE THAT EVERY OUNCE

OF MY BEING THAT DEMOCRACY WILL

AND MUST PREVAIL.

WE MUST DEMONSTRATE THAT

DEMOCRACY CAN STILL DELIVER FOR

OUR PEOPLE IN THIS CHANGED

WORLD.

THAT, IN MY VIEW, IS OUR GALVAN

IDENTIFIESING MISSION.

DEMOCRACY DOESNT HAPPEN BY

ACCIDENT.

WE HAVE TO TESTIFIEDDEFEND IT, F

IT, STRENGTHEN IT, RENEW IT.

WE HAVE TO PROVE THAT OUR MODEL

ISNT A RELIC OF HISTORY.

ITS THE SINGLE BEST WAY TO

REVITALIZE THE PROMISE OF OUR

FUTURE.

>> THESE SOARING COMMENTS ABOUT

DEMOCRACY, IM STARTING TO

UNDERSTAND THAT THEY ARE NOT

TALKING ABOUT MUSHY SHAVED OFF

BIPARTISAN DEALS.

THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT BUILDING

WIDE NUMBERS OF PUBLIC SUPPORT,

60, 65% AROUND BIG IDEAS LIKE

DEMOCRACY AND IT SEEMS THAT HE

IS GOING TO PUT SOME OF THE SORT

OF TIME AND ENERGY INTO THE

BULLY PULPIT AT RESTORING THIS

VERY IDEA, THAT OUR DEMOCRACY

NEEDS TO BE PROTECTED FROM THOSE

WHO DONT VALUE IT, FROM THOSE

WHO WOULD HAVE IT OVERTURNED.

>> Reporter: WELL, NICOLE, JOE

BIDEN WAS ALWAYS A FAN OF

ATTENDING THE MUNICH SECURITY

CONFERENCE.

ONE OF THE LAST TIMES HE DID SO

WAS WITH YOUR FORMER BECAUSE

JOHN McCAIN.

THE LAST TIME HE DID SO, IN

FACT, JUST A MONTH OR TWO BEFORE

HE ANNOUNCE DS HIS CANDIDACY.

IT WAS A MOMENT THAT WAS REALLY

IMPORTANT IN SHAPING HIS OPINION

OF WHAT THAT CAMPAIGN WAS ABOUT

AND WHY HE CROSS THAD LINE TO

DECIDE TO ENTER THAT RACE.

HE TALKED ABOUT SEEING ANOTHER

PERSON WHO SPOKE AT THAT

CONFERENCE, VICE PRESIDENT AT

THE TIME MIKE PENCE, AND SEEING

THE, AS HE PUT IT, DEAFENING

SILENCE WITH WHICH HE WAS

GREETED WHEN HE SAID HE WAS

THERE TO REPRESENT PRESIDENT OF

THE UNITED STATES DONALD TRUMP.

AND THEN THE OVERWHELMING

REACTION THAT HE RECEIVED LATER

WHEN HE SPOKE AS HE PUT IT TODAY

AS JUST A PROFESSOR AND AS A

PRIVACY CITIZEN.

THAT MOMENT REALLY HELPED PUSH

HIM TO ENTER THE RACE AND WHAT

HE HAS TOLD ME MULTIPLE TIMES,

WHICH IS HE WASNT GOING TO

ENTER IF NOT FOR DONALD TRUMP.
