President Biden talked about his administration’s economic strategy in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The president said, “We’re in a national emergency. We need to act like we’re in a national emergency.” Following his remarks, the president signed a couple of executive orders to expand food assistance, raise the minimum wage for the federal workforce to $15 an hour, and make eligible for unemployment benefits those who refuse to work due to concerns about their health during the pandemic. When asked whether he supported the request by Senator Mitch McConnell (R-KY) to delay until February the impeachment trial of former President Trump, he said he had not yet heard the details, but added, “the more time we have to get up and running and meet these crises, the better.” close
