President Biden’s Busy Weekend: Fundraising, Campaigning, and Airstrikes

This past weekend, President Biden had a packed schedule as he traveled to the West for a mix of political events and military action. On Friday, he ordered the first round of airstrikes in Iraq and Syria, in response to a drone attack in Jordan that claimed the lives of three U.S. Army Reserve soldiers.

Fundraising and Campaigning in Nevada

Despite the serious nature of the airstrikes, President Biden did not let it interrupt his plans to attend a fundraising event and campaign for Tuesday’s Nevada presidential primary. The president spent the weekend in Las Vegas, where he met with donors and supporters to raise money and garner support for his campaign.

CBS News’ Ed O’Keefe was on the ground in Las Vegas, reporting on the president’s activities and providing updates on the situation in the Middle East.

Airstrikes in Iraq and Syria

The airstrikes ordered by President Biden were in retaliation for the drone attack that occurred last week in Jordan. The attack, which was carried out by an Iranian-backed militia, targeted a U.S. military base and resulted in the deaths of three U.S. Army Reserve soldiers.

The president’s decision to take military action was met with mixed reactions, with some praising his swift response and others expressing concern over potential escalation of tensions in the region.

A Busy Weekend for President Biden

Overall, it was a busy and eventful weekend for President Biden as he balanced his duties as commander-in-chief with his responsibilities as a presidential candidate. As the Nevada primary approaches, the president continues to campaign and fundraise, while also addressing important matters of national security.
