Biden, in the investigation of those responsible
The country’s president, Joe Biden, expressed that he is “pleased” that a “quick fix” has been taken, as it protects American workers and keeps the country’s financial system safe.
“The American people and American businesses can trust that their bank deposits will be there when they need them,” Biden said, according to a White House statement.
Likewise, the president, who announced on Monday that he would explain “how to keep the banking system” to protect the economic recovery, showed that he was “firmly committed” to “holding those responsible for this mess fully accountable.”
For this reason, he indicated that he would work to strengthen the care and regulation of the largest banks in order to avoid this in the future.
The nervous system is silent
The president of California, Gavin Newsom, issued a statement in which he showed that the actions of the US government “have calmed the nerves and had a profoundly positive impact on California.”
“The Biden administration will act quickly and fully to protect the American economy and strengthen public confidence in our banking system,” he added.
Thus, he has thought that, as “California is a pillar of the American economy, the federal leaders” have done the right thing, we want the economy of innovation to grow and progress”.
