During Joe Biden first State of the Union speech, which will be mainly devoted to foreign policy as well as the rising inflation undermining the economic recovery, he will call on America and the world to remain together in confronting Russia over its invasion of Ukraine. 

Joe Biden WIll Revise His Speech To Address On Going Matters

Joe Biden’s presentation to a joint session of Congress, which will take place Tuesday at 9 p.m. in Washington, will mark a turning point in his crisis-plagued administration. Eastern Europe is on the verge of war, precisely as the United States is recovering from the current outbreak of coronavirus infections, and Americans are growing dissatisfied with the president’s handling of the economy. 

Joe Biden will emphasize the significance of a united front against Vladimir Putin among US allies, according to Jen Psaki, the White House press secretary. It comes as the United States, the European Union, and other allies seek to slap broad economic penalties on Russia in response to its invasion of Ukraine, as well as provide additional military and humanitarian help.

Biden’s speech would also have to address people’s fears that the conflict may spin out of control and directly affect them. When asked by a reporter on Monday afternoon if Americans should be concerned about a nuclear war with Russia, the president said “no.”

According to the most recent official data, the US consumer price index increased by 7.5 percent in January compared to the previous year, the quickest yearly rate in 40 years. A legislative crackdown on maritime trade alliances, which administration officials accuse of increasing costs for consumers, is one of the initiatives Biden is scheduled to present. With crude oil trading above $100 a barrel and intense political pressure to lower gas prices, many expect the president to mention energy inflation in his speech.
