America rising anew, President Biden tells US Congress in maiden address

Apr 29, 2021 13:16 IST | By Editorji News Desk

US President Joe Biden made his first address to a joint session of Congress on Wednesday night, outlining his vision for the country and what he sees as his administration's initial accomplishments in his 100 days in office. 

In his maiden address, Biden said "America is rising anew" as he identified the deadly Covid-19 pandemic and climate change as the two major global challenges. Biden asserted that America is in a competition with China and other countries to win the 21st century. 

He also pressed his so-far popular agenda, which includes a $2 trillion infrastructure plan and a newly unveiled, $1.8 trillion plan for families, children and students.
