"America is on the move again," President Biden said in his first joint address to Congress Wednesday night, remarks given amid the coronavirus pandemic. "Turning peril into possibility. Crisis into opportunity. Setback into strength."

The speech comes about 100 days into his presidency, and is being delivered to a Capitol chamber with reduced occupancy, as a result of the pandemic.

Biden is detailing his early accomplishments, and his newly unveiled American Families Plan.
