(WXMI) — President Joe Biden addressed a joint session of Congress for the first time in his presidency Wednesday night amid an ongoing pandemic and efforts to vaccinate Americans.

The pandemic and the administration’s response were the focal point of Biden’s address, which included a referendum on his first 100 days in office and a layout of his key future policies.

Included in that is his $2 trillion infrastructure plan, which has been met with resistance from Republican members of Congress for its hefty price tag.

Biden also addressed his roughly $1 trillion plan on childcare and education, immigration surges at the southern border and recent mass shootings and police killings.
