VIDEO: President Biden’s prime-time address on the ‘battle for the soul of the nation’

President Joe Biden will deliver a prime-time address “on the continued battle for the soul of the nation" outside Independence Hall in Philadelphia.

The president is scheduled to speak at 6:00 p.m. MDT / 8:00 p.m. EDT on Thursday, Sept. 1, 2022.

The White House is billing it as a major address just over two months before the midterm elections. Biden will discuss how the nation’s standing in the world and its democracy are at stake. The White House says, “He will talk about the progress we have made as a nation to protect our democracy, but how our rights and freedoms are still under attack. And he will make clear who is fighting for those rights, fighting for those freedoms, and fighting for our democracy.”
