Joe Biden canceled his speech last minute.
Secretary of State Antony Blinken read a letter from Biden instead.
Fox News reported:
President Biden canceled his speech honoring fallen police officers for National Police Week, instead allegedly traveling to his granddaughter’s graduation.
Biden was slated to deliver a keynote address at the National Fraternal Order of Police’s (FOP) National Peace Officers Memorial Service on Monday as the week honoring our nation’s law enforcement officers kicked off.
The president, however, pulled out of the event seemingly at the last minute — his name had already been printed on the event program — and Attorney General Merrick Garland was sent in Biden’s stead.
Blinken read a letter from the president in his absence at the event.
Biden then called a lid in the middle of the day and refused to answer any questions after he returned to the White House.
