WASHINGTON, D.C. — President Joe Biden delivered his first formal State of the Union speech on Tuesday night.
He is trying to convince Americans that a recovering pandemic-era economy is due to his work in the White House, as the country struggles amid rising inflation.
The conflict in Ukraine also takes up a significant spot in the address, as Biden works to convince Americans that the invasion can be controlled with sanctions and diplomacy.
