5 things to know Tuesday

Biden to discuss Russia, COVID in State of the Union address

President Joe Biden will deliver his first State of the Union address Tuesday to a nation eager to move on from the deadly coronavirus pandemic but facing worries over inflation and conflict with Russia. Biden’s remarks to a joint session of Congress will give him a chance to trumpet his administration’s accomplishments during his first year in office and lay out policy goals for the coming year. The speech won’t be his first major address to Congress. Last April, just three months after taking office, Biden struck an optimistic tone during a joint session of Congress, but that speech wasn’t technically a State of the Union address. Following the Tuesday night address, Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds will give the Republican Party’s rebuttal. The last State of the Union was delivered by former President Donald Trump on Feb. 4, 2020.
