The speech comes a month before July 4, Biden’s deadline for 70% of American adults to get at least partially vaccinated by America’s Independence Day.
The president is expected to announce a new partnership between the White House and the Anheuser-Busch brewing company to encourage Americans to get vaccinated.
The Anheuser-Busch CEO said in an announcement this morning that the company “will buy Americans 21 and older a round of beer when we reach the White House goal.”

Biden to meet with Republican senator as he seeks to wrap up infrastructure talks
Greetings from Washington, live blog readers.
Joe biden we will meet this afternoon with Shelley Moore Capito, the senator who has led the Republican team negotiating with the White House a possible infrastructure bill.
The meeting comes almost a week after Capito and his partner Republicans submitted its latest counteroffer, which proposed spending $ 928 billion for infrastructure projects over the next eight years.
That offer was still a long way from what Biden had asked to spend. Of the $ 928 billion in the Republicans’ plan, only $ 257 billion is considered new money, while the rest was benchmark spending – that is, funds that were already going to be used on infrastructure projects over the next few months. eight years due to existing policies.
Rather, the president has proposed spending $ 1.7 trillion on benchmark infrastructure spending, which is still less than the $ 2.25 trillion he originally called for.
Then Democrats and Republicans are miles behind on infrastructure, and Biden has signaled that he is ready for the negotiations to come to an end.
“Said [Capito] We have to finish this very soon, ”Biden said last Thursday. “We’re going to have to shut this down soon.”
The blog will have more details on the next meeting, so stay tuned.
