White House Ahead of Biden’s SOTU Address: ‘State of the Economy Is Strong’
Joe Biden is set to deliver his second State of the Union address on Tuesday. Outgoing National Economic Council (NEC) director Brian Deese presented reporters with a preview of how the president will address the economy and a broad array of economic issues in his speech.
The key objective when discussing the economy during his SOTU speech is conveying to the public that the “state of the economy is strong.”
According to Deese, Biden will share his administration’s progress and present it in “the broader frame” of growing the economy through “a bottom up, middle out economic strategy” rather than embracing the trickle-down economics of decades past.
One area of the economic landscape that the president will undoubtedly emphasize is the labor market.
