As he continues to struggle with a string of health crises and a new war in Yemen, US President Joe Biden is preparing to deliver a major speech on Wednesday, according to his spokesman.
The speech is likely to address the US president’s decision to send more troops to Yemen and the ongoing military conflict there, Biden spokesman Josh Earnest told reporters in a conference call.
“A lot is going to be said,” Earnest said.
The administration has said it will not comment on the speech. “
There’s going to have to be a lot to say.”
The administration has said it will not comment on the speech.
The president has been forced to address issues of national security, including a decision to leave the US without a nuclear deterrent in 2019.
On Wednesday, Biden will also outline plans for the healthcare overhaul, which has been controversial.
“I know this is a difficult day for everyone,” Biden said, “but we are all Americans and the American people deserve better than to see a country in chaos.”
He said the healthcare reform plan will provide healthcare for all Americans, not just the wealthy.
“No American should ever have to pay more for healthcare, or for anything else,” Biden told reporters.
“They will be able to keep their coverage, and they will be confident that their doctors will be treating them.”
