President Biden celebrated July 4th on Monday in a statement marking the holiday, saying America’s best days “still lie ahead.”

Biden is scheduled to celebrate Independence Day alongside First Lady Jill Biden, who will be hosting a BBQ with military families at the White House. The couple will later watch the fireworks display in downtown Washington, D.C.

“The Fourth of July is a sacred day in our country – it’s a time to celebrate the goodness of our nation, the only nation on Earth founded based on an idea: that all people are created equal,” Biden wrote on Twitter.

“Make no mistake, our best days still lie ahead,” he added.
