Biden to give prime-time address on anniversary of pandemic lockdown
President Biden will deliver a prime-time address on Thursday to mark the anniversary of the country effectively locking down due to the coronavirus pandemic.
“He will discuss the many sacrifices the American people have made over the last year, and the grave loss communities and families across the country have suffered,” White House press secretary Jen Psaki said at a briefing with reporters.
“The president will look forward, highlighting the role Americans will play in beating the virus and moving the country toward getting back to normal.”
The speech, which will be Biden’s first prime-time address since taking office, will coincide with the one-year mark since then-President Trump restricted travel into the United States.
