President Joe Biden was asked Thursday about what he plans to do differently for the next two years to change public opinion that the nation is moving in the “wrong direction.”

In his first press conference since January, Biden announced his intention to work with Republicans in Congress following the 2022 midterm elections. He then took a question from Zeke Miller of The Associated Press.

“You mentioned that Americans are frustrated. In fact, 75% of voters say the country is headed into the wrong direction despite the results of last night. What in the next two years do you intend to do differently to change people’s opinion of the direction of the country particularly as you contemplate a run for president in 2024?” Miller asked.

“Nothing,” the president answered. He added that the American people are “just finding out what we’re doing.”

“The more they know about what we’re doing, the more support there is,” he said. (RELATED: ‘We’re Going To Have Discussions About It’ 2024 Run, Biden Says While Addressing Midterm Results)

Biden cited changes made to prescription drug prices and building roads and bridges as successes of his administration. “The problem is the major piece of legislation we passed, some of it bipartisan, takes time to be recognized,” he added. He also highlighted the “billions of dollars of infrastructure money,” but admitted that “not that many spades have been put in the ground.”

The Congressional Budget Office reports that the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act is projected to add $256 billion to national deficits over the next decade, according to CNN.
