Republican Conference Chair Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., left, and House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn, D-S.C., talk before the start of President Joe Bidens address to the joint session of Congress in the U.S. Capitol April 28, 2021 in Washington, DC. On the eve of his 100th day in office, Biden will speak about his plan to revive America’s economy and health as it continues to recover from a devastating pandemic. He will deliver his speech before 200 invited lawmakers and other government officials instead of the normal 1600 guests because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
