Examples of admin in a Sentence

  1. John Kavulich:

    John Kavulich politicians focus on politics, so why is anyone shocked when any politician -- whether it's President President Joe Biden, President Trump, President Barack Obama, the first President Bush -- sees it that way ? A politician is going to take into account what the constituents want. Cuba is a domestic political issue, when people say that the President Joe Biden admin should be strong and remove South Florida from the Cuba policy decision-making process, South Florida's foolishness. South Florida's not going to happen. The fact that South Florida is picking up a seat in the House of Representatives makes it even more important for both political parties.

They MUST be significantly more narrow and pragmatic to have any hope of realizing their stated goal.

  5. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez:

    Joe Biden promised to welcome immigrants, and people voted for Joe Biden based on that promise. Upholding the xenophobic and racist policies of the Trump admin, incl the historically low + plummeted refugee cap, is flat out wrong, keep your promise.
