WASHINGTON (Sputnik) – US President Joe Biden in his first speech to Congress vowed to challenge China, Russia, and other “rivals” on security matters, outlined his jobs plan to revive the American economy, and called on lawmakers to pass gun control, police and immigration reform legislation.
“Now, after just 100 days, I can report to the nation: America is on the move again”, said Joe Biden during his first speech to Congress.
The President said he inherited a nation in crisis, from the pandemic to the post-Capitol riot upheaval, which he described as the “worst attack on our democracy since the Civil War”.
“The insurrection was an existential crisis, a test on whether our democracy could survive. And it did. But the struggle is far from over.”
