When Joe Biden was running for president, his promises included a pledge to unify the nation:
From the moment I announced I was running for president, my goal has been to unite and heal this nation.
We must come together. pic.twitter.com/L3S5J5bQvM

It probably won’t surprise you that polls are showing Biden’s promise to unify the nation isn’t being viewed as coming to fruition:
Fox News Poll: Voters think the country is less united under Bidenhttps://t.co/nlMZIZ9Tsu

And now the New York Times is attempting to come to the rescue. Notice how this is framed to make Biden’s failure to unite the country sound more like the fault of the people. In any case, the first lady is apparently trying to help:
Eight months into Biden's presidency, both he and the first lady are finding that winning the “battle for the soul of the nation” may be his most elusive campaign promise. Trying to prove it's still possible, Dr. Jill Biden isn't standing on the sidelines. https://t.co/lem0GkOubG

Biden himself doesn’t seem to have been too interested in winning that particular battle.
Where does abandoning Americans behind terrorist lines figure into the "battle for the soul of the nation"? https://t.co/KK06k72WDZ

It's just such a shame Joe Biden can't win the soul of the nation by running away from the disasters he created.

Maybe Dr. Biden can deal with that one when she’s done helping Joe with the unity promise.
Did Jill Biden write this?

Joe Biden has been batting for soul of half of America at the behest of the other half. He's derisive, divisive, and polarizing. Nothing like he campaigned to be.

The politician who once told a black audience that Mitt Romney was going to “put y’all back in chains” isn’t fulfilling his “unity” promise. We’re shocked… shocked!
It's not particularly unifying when you scapegoat a large segment of the population for being responsible for the continued spread of the virus. https://t.co/W5mYfZpGGc

That too! Biden’s several-decade political career has been based on division, which is why his “unity” promise was and is a total joke.
Chinese media blushing right now. https://t.co/n1HoSKz4cc

Incredible how every time the WH is occupied by a Dem, the 'adversarial' media just goes into full ass-kissing mode with no shame whatsoever. https://t.co/0j1Y7KmNP7

The Bidens have already lost the “battle for the soul of the nation.” According to polls, the USA is more divided under Biden than Trump.
The ‘great uniter’ is actually the great divider. Biden’s lost the middle already. Dr. Jill will accelerate such divisions, not placate them. https://t.co/QV7FQLvOww
