Bidens New Year message Ryan Seacrest interview

President Biden and first lady Jill Biden share a New Year's message, with the president touting U.S. job gains as he seeks reelection.

President Joe Biden and first lady Jill Biden delivered a New Year's message on Sunday, with the president highlighting U.S. job gains as he looks ahead to a potential reelection bid in 2024.

During an interview with Ryan Seacrest, President Biden expressed his hopes for the new year, stating that he wishes "everyone a healthy, happy, and safe New Year." He emphasized that the United States is in a strong position to lead the world and that the country is making a comeback.

Reflecting on standout memories from 2023, Biden highlighted the ability for people to make a living and the creation of over 14 million jobs. He expressed optimism about the American people's resilience and the nation's recovery from the challenges posed by the pandemic.

The interview was pre-recorded and aired on ABC's "Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve with Ryan Seacrest," just before the East Coast celebrated the arrival of 2024. Jill Biden also shared an optimistic message, encouraging positivity, optimism, and kindness.

The Bidens spoke from St. Croix in the U.S. Virgin Islands, where they were celebrating the New Year. They arrived on the island after the president returned to Washington from spending Christmas with family at Camp David. This trip to the U.S. Virgin Islands has been a family tradition for the Bidens, with the exception of last year when they celebrated the holiday in Wilmington, Delaware.

The president's trip to St. Croix has faced criticism from some Republicans, who have accused the White House of being absent in addressing the situation at the U.S.-Mexico border. Biden's handling of immigration has been a point of contention, with his approval rating on immigration dropping in December.

The White House has not responded to the criticism, and this is not the first time a president has faced backlash for taking a holiday trip. Previous presidents, including George W. Bush, Barack Obama, and Donald Trump, have also encountered criticism for their holiday travel.

Despite the criticism, President Biden remains focused on the future and shared his New Year's resolution of "coming back next year." This resolution reflects his determination to continue leading the nation and addressing the challenges that lie ahead.
