(ConservativeHub.com) – On Monday, June 19, President Joe Biden made an unusual statement, claiming that he and other US officials would have protected 30% of all lands and waters the US has control over by 2020. This statement appeared to be a mistake on Biden’s part, since 2020 was three years ago and before he took office.
Biden made this remark during his visit to California, where he spoke at the Lucy Evans Baylands Nature Interpretive Center and Preserve. In his speech, Biden emphasized his administration’s focus on reducing emissions and addressing the effects of climate change while also conserving 3 tenths of the lands and waters in the country. It is likely that Biden intended to refer to the year 2030 instead of 2020 in his statement, due to a fact sheet released by the White House in March.

The fact sheet highlighted that over $1 billion in investments would be allocated to preserve “at least 30%” of the country’s land and water resources, with a particular emphasis on protecting wildlife.
According to a recent Fox News report, this incident is not the only gaffe Biden has made recently. During a Connecticut summit, he puzzled the public by ending his speech with the saying, “God Save the Queen.” Historically, this was used in the U.K. to refer to the country’s national anthem during the reign of Queen Elizabeth II. However, Queen Elizabeth II passed away back in 2022 and was succeeded by her son, King Charles III, making Biden’s reference outdated.
