After a short trip to Philadelphia, President Joe Biden called it day on Tuesday.
At 11:00 am, Biden gave a 35-minute speech to the 29th Quadrennial AFL-CIO Convention. He tried to defend his economic agenda despite growing dissatisfaction with the country’s high gas prices, and rising inflation.
He returned to the White House at 1:30 p.m., and made no further stops on his trip.
As he returned to White House, he did not answer any questions and entered the Oval Office.
At 1:51 p.m., the White House created a “lid” to allow the president to participate in public affairs. The “lid” usually informs reporters that the president will not be appearing in public again until the next day.
The president’s schedule for the rest of the day is not known and it is therefore unclear.
The White House issued a proclamation by Biden earlier in the afternoon declaring that June 15th is World Elder Abuse Awareness Day.
He wrote that “All of us have an obligation to prevent elder abuse and ensure that our nation’s seniors can age with dignity.”
Biden started his week Monday by returning to Delaware at 12:44 pm. He then signed a bill to study the creation a national museum honoring the country’s Asian American heritage.
