Biden polls positive for first 100 days in office

US President Joe Biden said on Wednesday he was not seeking conflict with China or Russian Federation as he put a renewed focus on diplomacy in his first address to Congress. The White House also plans to subsidize two-year tuition for students from families earning less than $125,000 enrolled at minority-serving institutions, including historically Black colleges.

Later he added, "You know this stuff is wrong".

First lady Jill Biden will attend, but don't expect the president to look toward her box in the gallery and give shout-outs to special guests seated with her to help humanize particular policies.

"If I've heard it once, I've heard it a million times".

"We'll be working closely with our allies to address the threats posed by both of these countries through diplomacy and stern deterrence, '" Biden said.

In addition, the plan will reportedly include $225 billion for a national paid family and medical leave program that would offer some support for three months of maternity/paternity leave, illness, rehabilitation and other emergencies.

Unlike former President Trump's February 2017 address to a joint session of Congress in which members had no specific seating arrangements, there will be limits on the number of senators and representatives in the chamber on Wednesday due to social-distancing requirements, a Capitol official told Fox News.

The sweeping proposal is meant as the second prong to push the country forward, alongside the American Jobs Plan, which focuses on boosting employment, transportation infrastructure and USA innovation.

The plan, he'll say, is "a blue-collar blueprint to build America".

White House officials also credited the pandemic for the timing of Biden's address, which the president had initially pledged to hold during his first month in office.

"Nearly 90% of the infrastructure jobs created in the American Jobs Plan don't require a college degree", he will say, according to the excerpts.

Joe Biden has set himself on a collision course with Republicans, Wall Street and Silicon Valley after he proposed massive tax hikes to fund his multi-trillion dollar spending.

"It's time for corporate America and the wealthiest 1% of Americans to pay their fair share - just pay their fair share", Biden said. "They're already paying enough". We know that there's no safe amount of lead for children. It's within our power. Keating recently testified during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on the proposed Equality Act, which would amend federal civil rights law to protect LGBTQ people from discrimination.

"To all the transgender Americans watching at home - especially the young people who are so courageous - I want you to know your president has your back". Senate, used a large part of his speech to talk about race - detailing racism he's personally experienced, but making the argument that it's just as racist to teach white kids that they're 'an oppressor'.

"There is not a single thing, nothing, nothing beyond our capacity".

Wednesday night included a few "firsts" even before Biden started talking.

History will be made there when, for the first time, two women will form the backdrop for a presidential address to Congress.

Biden remarked on this right off the top of his remarks.

President Joe Biden speaks from the Treaty Room in the White House on April 14, 2021, about the withdrawal of the remainder of United States troops from Afghanistan.

But aides and allies say Biden views his speech as much about selling a broad vision to the American public as it is a pitch to lawmakers on any particular legislative program.

Scott credited the Trump administration with the development of effective vaccines to address Covid-19 and cited school closures during the pandemic as a key issue.

Of the nine members of the Supreme Court, only Chief Justice John Roberts attended.
