As Joe Biden is nearing completing the initial two months of his presidency in the U.S, he will be delivering his first prime time address to the country on Thursday night, while the plight of the COVID-19 pandemic is still raging with loss and disruptions.
Biden To Address Americans On Thursday Night Through East Room
His prime focus during the address will be to steer the nation to have a yearning for sentiment and hope in the country’s next battle against the pandemic which leads to the loss of a significant part of the American population, which is roughly around 530,000.
Biden said that he will be talking about what the country has gone through last year but he will give rather an importance to what comes next in the country.
Biden is going to confront a great challenge when he prepares to go on to give his address in prime time. He has to encourage Americans at the same time of mourning over their loss of loved ones as well as the sacrifices that came from their part since the outbreak of the pandemic. He needs to urge his audience to remain vigilant despite the extreme fatigue caused by the virus as well as when there is a growing restlessness and impatience to restore the normal activities along with the luring promises given by the vaccines.
He also plans to address the first anniversary of the World Health Organisation’s declaration of the pandemic, apart from that he will move on to project optimism for the future, as well as to mourn over the dead.
Douglas Brinkley, the presidential historian and a professor at Rice University, said that this is a chance for Biden to go into the living rooms of every American to mourn their loss as well as to explain to them how he and his team are leading the country out of the predicament.
He added that it is a big moment, and Biden needs to win over the minds of people to promote them to stay masked and vaccinated. Brinkley also said that Biden got the chance to tell Americans that after last year, the federal government has not ignored them as well.
The remarks of President Biden in the East Room are the major aspect of the pivotal week for him as he addresses the defining challenge of leading the nation through the double public health and economic storms which are introduced by the coronavirus.
Biden said that the focus of his remarks would be on the plans of his administration that are to be delivered in the coming months. At the same time, he added that he will reiterate his calls for Americans to stick to the practices of preventive measures to hasten the pandemic to be defeated.
He said that he is going to launch the coming phase of response against the pandemic and describe what he and his team will do as a government and what we expect from Americans.
He also added that at the end of the dark tunnel of the past year, there is light and a real reason for hope.
