When Biden speaks tonight: DeWalt speaker becomes ‘the ultimate speaker’
Speaker Joe Biden, who was sworn in as the 45th president on Friday, will speak on the Senate floor today, as a DeWALT speaker, the company announced.
Biden’s speech will be his first public remarks since the Affordable Care Act passed last year.
The speakership is a “major milestone for our company,” DeWALL CEO Peter DeWald wrote in a blog post.
“This is a very significant moment in our history.”
The company has sold over 3 million speakers for medical and consumer products.
It is the largest speaker company in the world, according to DeWALD.
In its blog post, DeWALT said the new speakers will be used in hospitals and nursing homes, classrooms and the workplace.
Biden will speak in the United States Senate from the Senate Chamber in the U.S. Capitol Building, according the company’s blog post announcing the news.
“Our team of speakers has been honing their skills and delivering quality, powerful, memorable presentations for over a decade,” De WALD wrote.
The speaker, who is in his final year of his term as president, has said he plans to continue to use DeWALKL speakers and work on a future presidential campaign.
DeWOLDT said Biden plans to address the Senate at 2 p.m.
Biden was inaugurated as the 44th president of the United State on Friday.
De WALL said the company expects to have 3 million DeWACTS speakers available for the Senate by the end of the year.
In March, De WALT announced it would no longer produce the DeWATE speakers, which are made by a different manufacturer, but are still available.
The company also announced that it was shutting down its website, DeWall, and would be relocating its headquarters to the California city of Oakland, where it is based.
DeWall will continue to offer the De WALT brand and services, according its website.
“I know you’re anxious, and I know it’s hard for you, but you’ve got to get ready,” Biden said in his speech, which also included a call to action to support women, veterans, immigrants and others in need.
The president said the United Nations will “do what it can” to help address the pandemic.
He said he wants to continue working on “a strategy for defeating this virus, and bringing us back from the brink of catastrophe.”
The White House also announced a $30 million grant to the nonprofit organization Doctors Without Borders.
The money will go toward helping the organization prepare for the arrival of more patients and medical staff from countries like Syria, Afghanistan and Nigeria.
