Pelosi invites Biden to address Congress

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi officially invited President Joe Biden to a joint congressional session on Tuesday evening on April 28, his first speech to both houses as President.

In a brief letter to Biden, Pelosi said she invited him “to share your vision to address the challenges and opportunities of this historic moment”.

Pelosi had previously cited the need to await decisions from the attending physician’s office and the House Sergeant at Arms about capacity during the Covid-19 pandemic. Former Presidents Donald Trump and Barack Obama both gave their first addresses in February of their first term in office.
