On March 25, local time, U.S. President Biden held the first official press conference in more than 60 days since he took office, answering hot issues such as border crisis, gun control, and infrastructure planning.

Component, many Democrats associate it with the fate of the infrastructure bill.
However, the US media still pointed out that for Biden, the passage of the Infrastructure Act has achieved a major legislative goal he has promised to achieve since he became president: the largest single investment in infrastructure projects by federal resources in more than a decade. , Including to strengthen the response to global warming.Keywords:
