President Joe Biden dropped in on the W.S. Jenks & Son hardware store in Washington DC for a brief visit and remarks on Tuesday afternoon.
Biden spoke to the store owners about the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), an emergency fund that W.S. Jenks & Son applied for and received in February because it has fewer than 20 employees. The funding allowed employees at high risk for COVID-19 to stay home while still getting paid.
Founded in 1866, W.S. Jenks & Son bills itself as “Washington’s oldest and most complete source for tools, hardware, machinery, lawn and garden care, and home improvement.”
Following Biden’s remarks at the store, reporters on site attempted to ask him questions but were quickly shooed out by his handlers. They can be heard in the video below talking over the reporters and saying “We’re gonna move out, thank you!” and “Let’s go, you guys. Come on. Thank you guys.”
