Biden falsely claims he ‘made it’ on student loan ‘by a vote or two’ at White House youth forum


President Biden made several false statements during a White House youth forum, botched responses regarding his student debt relief plan and seemed to forget key details at times.

The town hall, which was sponsored by NowThis, featured a variety of young activists who asked the president candid questions about gun laws, climate change, abortion access and trans issues. The event was recorded on Tuesday and uploaded Sunday evening.

Biden rejected a statement on his student loan relief plan, saying it “passed by a vote or two.” His pardon plan was an executive decision that did not go through Congress.

During another response, the president seemed to forget the name of Roe v. Wade – the landmark 1973 abortion decision that was overturned by the Supreme Court in June.

“Guess what, we need the same votes we need to overturn Dobbs, to, uh, reinstate, uh, the decision that was overturned by the Court,” he stumbled during a conversation on the ‘abortion.

Biden also made a bizarre comment when asked about gun control.

“My law says there can’t be more than eight balls in a round, okay?” Biden said, leaving gun enthusiasts scratching their heads on Twitter. Biden appeared to confuse “round” with “magazine”.

During the extensive town hall, Biden also doubled down on his support for progressive policies. He spoke about gun control with Natalie Barden, a 20-year-old activist whose brother was killed in the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting.

“I really think an assault weapons ban should be a priority,” Barden told Biden. “Because, as you said, these are weapons of war that are not made to kill animals, they are made to kill people.”

“And I promise you I made it a priority from the start,” Biden replied. “But you have to vote, vote, vote, vote, vote. We need a few more Democrats in the Senate.”

President Biden told students there needed to be more Democrats in the Senate before assault rifles could be banned.

Dylan Mulvaney, a TikTok transgender content creator with millions of followers, called on Biden to support the legality of trans-related medical procedures.

“Many states have legislators who feel they can get involved in this very personal process,” the trans rights activist began. “Do you think states should have the right to ban gender-affirming health care?”

“I don’t think any state or anyone should have the right to do that as a moral issue. As a legal issue, I just think it’s wrong,” Biden replied. His administration has come under fire from Republicans for promoting puberty blockers and hormone treatments for minors.

In another question, Mulvaney asked Biden how Democrats can more effectively advocate for trans people.

“I’m not being facetious when I say this: being seen with people like you,” Biden replied. “I mean it. I mean it sincerely. People are afraid of what they don’t know.”
