What happened:

  • President Joe Biden gave his first address to a joint session of Congress on the eve of his 100th day in office. He urged a $1.8 trillion investment in children, families and education, declared "America is on the move again" and covered numerous issues, from Afghanistan to immigration to the "existential crisis" of the Jan. 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol.
  • He spoke to a smaller-than-usual audience in the House because of pandemic restrictions.
  • Here's a look at Biden's 100 days from Newsday's Laura Figueroa Hernandez.


South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott provided the Republican response to Biden's speech, which you can watch here.
