President Biden Holds First Press Conference

Pledges to do what it takes to move his agenda forward. 

On Thursday, President Biden held the first press conference since being inaugurated. Journalists asked a wide variety of questions ranging from the topics of children being detained at the southern border to proposed changes of the filibuster in the Senate. It is the longest period of time for an initial presidential press conference in over 40 years.

President Biden stressed that he was serious about moving items of his agenda forward. He said, “I want to get things done. I want to get them done consistent with what we promised the American people. I am going to say something outrageous: I have never been particularly poor at calculating getting things done in the United States Senate.” 

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • That President Biden would seek God’s wisdom as he acts on his agenda. 
  • For administration and Cabinet officials to have discernment in advising the president. 
  • That Congress and the administration would work together with balance, considering the best interests of the American people.
