After the Republicans seized control of the House of Representatives, Biden is giving his first significant speech before a divided Congress. He pushed Republicans “friends” to cooperate.
Joe Biden on Tuesday (local time) in his State of the Union address said that the American economy is better positioned to grow “than any country on Earth,” despite disruptions from Covid-19 and Russian President Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine.
Biden began his remarks by greeting newly elected House Speaker Kevin McCarthy, showing early signs of bipartisanship. The president also acknowledged Hakeem Jeffries, the first Black party leader in the House and the minority leader of the House.
