What to know about the Biden-Schumer speech: What to watch
Biden’s address to the joint session of Congress will mark the first time the president has addressed a joint session since he was inaugurated on Jan. 20, 2021.
The address will be delivered at the start of a legislative session, known as the lame duck session, that begins Monday.
President Trump, who took office in January, has taken steps to curtail the recess and avoid the use of the term “deadlocked,” meaning the Senate will not have a vote on any legislation until Tuesday, March 16.
He also has ordered a review of the Congressional Budget Office’s projections of the cost of the Republican healthcare bill, the American Health Care Act.
The president will also be addressing the nation from the Oval Office, where he will deliver remarks on the economy, healthcare and education.
The House is set to meet Monday to consider the GOP-led repeal-and-replace bill.
In addition to the healthcare bill and the president’s budget, the House is expected to consider a Republican-backed border security bill that would allow for more expedited deportation for those illegally present in the U.S. The White House is also expected to push the House to take up a $1 trillion tax cut.
The Senate is expected later in the week to pass a tax-cut bill.
The president will deliver a speech on immigration at 9:30 a.m.
ET, and the speech will be followed by remarks from Democratic Sens.
Bernie Sanders of Vermont and Joe Manchin of West Virginia, according to the White House.
During his remarks, Biden will lay out the case for his administration’s priorities.
He will also call for the continuation of the war on drugs and for more effective immigration enforcement, Biden’s office said.
