Kansas City, Missouri 2021-01-26 11:38:57 –
White House spokesman Jen Psaki will host a daily press conference on Tuesday prior to two public events currently planned for President Joe Biden.
The 12:30 pm press conference will take place hours before Biden will give a speech outlining the steps his administration will take in hopes of moving the country towards racial equality. Following his remarks, Biden signs an executive order aimed at police reform.
The administration will also provide up-to-date information on the COVID-19 pandemic later this afternoon.
The briefing will also take place hours before Senator, who is sworn in as a jury in the second impeachment trial of former President Donald Trump. On Monday, the Democratic Party of the House of Representatives accused Trump of inciting a riot in the Capitol building on January 6, and delivered an article of impeachment to the Senate.
The Senator will swear on Tuesday, but the proceedings will not begin until the week of February 8. Meanwhile, the Senate will focus on considering the appointment of the Biden Cabinet for confirmation and negotiation in another round of COVID-19 stimulation.
In her short time as a press conference, Saki revived a regular daily press conference for the White House Correspondents. This was widely abolished during the last years of the Trump administration. Saki has also minimized hostility between the current administration and the press so far.
The press conference on Monday was Saki’s first short-term press conference in which the briefing was translated live into American Sign Language. She also announced that the government is considering ways to speed up the process of circulating the new $ 20 bill featuring the portrait of Harriet Tubman.
