Biden to participate in US Independence Day celebrations

President Joe Biden will participate today in the traditional White House barbecue for America’s 4th of July Independence Day, a bank holiday that many use to share with family and friends.

Biden will host families at the executive mansion for the annual holiday festivities, will be interviewed by ABC News tomorrow and will travel to Wisconsin for a campaign rally with hundreds of supporters.

Next week he will join dozens of world leaders at the NATO summit here and hold a press conference.

It’s part of the president’s hectic schedule from Thursday and over the next few days as he tries to restore American voters’ confidence after the debate a week ago.

This year’s celebrations come amid growing calls from some of his own party colleagues for Biden to drop out of the race for re-election after poor ratings in the first head-to-head with Republican rival Donald Trump.

In an interview with Earl Ingram on «The Earl Ingram Show» radio programme yesterday, Biden warned he would stay in the fight. «I made a mistake, I made a mistake. It’s 90 minutes on the stage. Look at what I’ve done for the last three and a half years,» he said.

The traditional fireworks ceremony from the National Mall will begin at 21:09 local time on Thursday.

The sprawling green park, an icon in the capital, features monuments to George Washington, the first President of the United States (1789-1797), and Abraham Lincoln, the 16th President (1861-1865).

It was in the late 19th century that Italian migrants settling in the United States brought fireworks to the country.

For this day, there is also a heat warning and the authorities are calling for extreme protective measures in the face of potentially dangerous temperatures.

Experts warned that the summer has started unusually hot and is expected to stay that way, with forecasts showing only fleeting moments of respite in the coming weeks.

The heat will increase in parts of the West and South, culminating in temperatures 10 to 15 degrees above normal in California and Oregon on Thursday and 5 to 10 degrees above normal from Texas and Oklahoma to the Carolinas, local media reports said.
