Host Chris Wallace pressed Mr. Buttigieg on what some are calling misleading and rosy predictions about how many jobs the plan would create, to which Buttigieg admitted he should have "been more clear" in his initial assessment. However, Buttigieg did stress that the plan would undoubtedly create millions of jobs both directly and indirectly.
Anthony Blinken Meet The Press Interview
Secretary of State Antony Blinken spoke with Chuck Todd on NBC's Meet The Press to discuss the vaccination drive not just in the United States, but throughout the world.

He said the Administration is working with its global partners to ensure not only rich nations are able to vaccinate their citizens, but that poor countries aren't left behind, either. They also discussed the origins of the virus and what appropriate actions, if any, need to be taken to hold those responsible accountable.
