President Biden is suffering the lowest job approval ratings of his presidency

VERBATIM:

A new poll from The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Research shows only 39 percent of U-S adults approve of Joe Biden’s performance as president.Notably, his approval rating among Democrats stands at 73 percent, a substantial drop from earlier in his presidency. Overall, only about 2 in 10 adults say the U.S. is heading in the right direction or the economy is good — both down from a month earlier. GC, Wash.

President Biden is pledging that his administration is prepared to respond to this year’s hurricanes and help Americans recover from them

VERBATIM:

The president said hurricanes seem to grow more extreme every year and the U-S will likely see “another tough hurricane season.” He offered this advice to Americans.
He spoke from a hangar at Joint Base Andrews in Maryland, where he viewed aircraft used to track and respond to hurricanes. Last year was the third-most-active hurricane season on record. GC, the WH.

Biden administration to appeal Title 42 asylum policy setback
Greg ClugstonMay 22, 2022
The Biden administration is appealing a federal court ruling that blocked the lifting of a pandemic-related asylum policy. In a legal setback for President Biden, a federal judge in Louisiana refused to end Title 42 restrictions on migrants seeking asylum on the southern border. The restrictions have been in place since March 2020 on grounds of preventing the spread of COVID-19. The White House disagrees with the court’s ruling and the Justice Department will appeal. In the meantime, the White House says the policy will continue to be enforced while the legal process plays out.

U.S. removes 5 extremistsgroups from foreign terrorist list
Greg ClugstonMay 21, 2022
The United States has removed five extremist groups from its list of foreign terrorist organizations. The State Department says it removed the groups, all believed defunct, after a mandatory five-year review of their designations. Al-Qaida, which was also up for review, was kept on the list. Several of the groups removed once posed significant threats, killing hundreds if not thousands of people across Asia, Europe and the Middle East. The decision was politically sensitive for the Biden administration and may draw criticism from victims and their families.

Judge blocks Biden’s planned lifting of Title 42 asylum restrictions
Greg ClugstonMay 20, 2022

A federal judge has blocked the Biden administration’s plan to end pandemic-related restrictions on migrants on the southern border. The policy in question is known as Title 42 and it bars entry to migrants seeking asylum in order to prevent the spread of COVID-19. President Biden had hoped to lift the restrictions on Monday, but a federal judge in Louisiana ordered that they stay in place while a lawsuit plays out in court. The White House said it disagreed with the ruling but would comply while the ruling is appealed by the administration.

Greg ClugstonMay 20, 2022
Two U.S. Secret Service employees were sent home from President Biden’s Asia trip for an incident involving alcohol. The Secret Service is investigating a confrontation the two employees had with locals in South Korea. They were overseas preparing for the president’s visit. According to a person familiar with the matter, an agent and an armed physical security specialist were involved in the alcohol-fueled incident, which led to local law enforcement filing a police report. Both Secret Service employees were put on a plane to return home and an agency spokesperson says the incident had “no impact” on the president’s trip.

On Asia trip, Biden tours Samsung computer chip factory
Greg ClugstonMay 20, 2022

President Biden opened his trip to Asia by touring a Samsung computer chip factory. The Samsung semiconductor factory is the model for a 17-billion dollar plant that the South Korean company has promised to open in Texas. During a tour of the facility, the president made the case that it offers a way to deepen ties with the Indo-Pacific region. With inflation driven higher by the chip shortage, Mr. Biden is trying to show that his administration is responding to economic concerns, which have hurt him politically.
