PRESIDENT Joe Biden will deliver a highly-anticipated speech about voting rights on Tuesday, July 13, 2021.
The remarks come in light of former president Donald Trump’s 2020 campaign that claimed the November presidential election was stolen.
Biden will use his remarks in Philadelphia “to make the case to the American people about how this is a fundamental right,” Jen Psaki said.
The speech comes after a report some White House allies and the DNC want wireless carriers to monitor phone and social media messages for alleged misinformation about the Covid vaccine push.
According to Politico, the White House is: planning to engage fact-checkers more aggressively and work with SMS [Short Message Service] carriers to dispel misinformation about vaccines”.
“We are steadfastly committed to keeping politics out of the effort to get every American vaccinated so that we can save lives and help our economy further recover,” White House spokesperson Kevin Munoz told the outlet in response to the report.
“When we see deliberate efforts to spread misinformation, we view that as an impediment to the country’s public health and will not shy away from calling that out.”
