First Lady Jill Biden has revealed she leaves notes for the US President "on the mirror" as she leapt to the defence of her husband.

Mrs Biden spoke about the how they have maintained their marriage since tying the knot in 1977, admitting you "have to work in any relationship, but especially in marriage".

"It may be a nice 'I missed you' or ''I hope you get whatever it is you're working on.'"

"We got the schools reopened — thank God we all got off Zoom — we got health care, we got money for broadband so underserved kids can have internet.

"I don't want to sound like a political ad, but we have done so much. Gas prices are a huge issue, and Joe is, every single day, on the phone talking to leaders about gas and oil.

"These problems are coming so fast and furious, and certainly a lot of it is dark, like you said.

"But I wish people could see more of what Joe has accomplished and how hard he's working."

President Biden has struggled with public approval as the US Government deals with a series of crises, including the botched withdrawal from Afghanistan and rising fuel prices.

A recent poll from Gallup suggests his approval rating amongst the US public has dropped to 38 percent.

Mrs Biden says her husband has been in power during a "tough time in history," but insists he has many achievements to savour from his time in office.

She said: "Sometimes it feels like we're pushing this boulder up the hill, but progress is being made."

Speaking about the secret to keeping their marriage healthy, Mrs Biden uttered the importance of "counting on one another when we need to".

She stated: "It's not always 50/50. Sometimes you lean on him, sometimes he leans on you.

"Sometimes he's super busy and I have to pick up a lot of it, or vice versa.

"The goal is that we're not in the same place at the same time, so we can count on one another when we need to."
