Biden says 'nothing's been good enough' as Covid hotspots see testing shortages

President Joe Biden on Wednesday acknowledged his administration has struggled to meet the nation's demand for Covid-19 tests, but he defended the federal response to a surge in cases -- driven largely by the Omicron variant. In a one-on-one interview by ABC News, interviewer David Muir asked the President whether the administration's efforts were "good enough," given that many Americans are struggling to get access to Covid-19 testing ahead of Christmas.
"No, nothing's been good enough," Biden responded, before highlighting why the country is better prepared than it was during previous surges. "I don't think it's a failure. I think it's -- you could argue that we should have known a year ago, six months ago, two months ago, a month ago," Biden said.
