Nancy Pelosi invites Biden to address a joint session of Congress on April 28 to 'tell the American people help is here'

 House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Tuesday invited President Joe Biden to address a joint session of Congress on April 28 - his 100th day in office.

'I am writing to invite you to address a Joint Session of Congress on Wednesday, April 28, to share your vision for addressing the challenges and opportunities of this historic moment,' Pelosi wrote in a letter to Biden that was released by her office.

'Nearly 100 days ago, when you took the oath of office, you pledged in a spirit of great hope that "Help Is On The Way,"' Pelosi said in the letter, adding, 'because of your historic and transformative leadership, Help Is Here!'


In February, Pelosi said she would invite Biden to deliver the speech after Congress passed his $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief bill. Biden signed the measure on March 11.

The White House accepted the invitation late Tuesday. 

Biden's address comes almost three months after his inauguration.

Donald Trump delivered his first address a month after he was sworn into office.

The joint address will be different to previous speeches by presidents in their first year in office because of coronavirus restrictions.

However, there is a chance the address could be made to a group of lawmakers in the House with more willing to attend in person. 

Biden is set to discuss his infrastructure plan and will face calls from the GOP to talk about the growing crisis at the border. 

The president has already met with a bipartisan group of lawmakers to try and move the plan forward, with many Republicans saying his spending items go beyond the definition of infrastructure.

He has said he is willing to negotiate and is likely to receive requests from state and local leaders for projects in desperate need of large investments.

The wide-ranging infrastructure bill is his second big-budget legislative item. He already secured the first with his $1.9T COVID relief bill. 

His plan to get gun control reforms through the House, his bid to curtail the pandemic and more voting rights legislation could also be addressed.

'Nearly 100 days ago, when you took the oath of office, you pledged in a spirit of great hope that "Help Is On The Way,"' Pelosi said in the letter, adding, 'because of your historic and transformative leadership, Help Is Here!'
