President Biden addressed the House Democrats 2021 Issues Conference via livestream this past Wednesday. During which he spoke about the $1.9 trillion relief bill. Nearing the end of the event, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said it was time for Biden to take questions, “If that’s what I’m supposed to do, Nance,” he replied. “Whatever you want me to do,” he repeated when the livestream was suddenly cut off.

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki has been covering for the President.
