President Biden received pushback on Wednesday after he said during a White House event that there is nothing a man can do that a woman cannot do "as well or better."

Biden made the remarks during an Equal Pay Day event.

"There's a lot to do, but together we can ensure that our daughters have all the same rights and opportunities as our sons," Biden said. "And if we're able to do this, it'll be transformational for our nation. That's the goal. That's what this is all about. That's what this team, all of you, are all about.

"Let me make one more point. You know, I've told my daughters, granddaughters from the time they [were] old enough to understand what I was saying — and I mean it: There's not a single thing a man can do that a woman can't do as well or better. Not a single thing."

Public figures on the right voiced their disagreement to the sentiment.
