THE WHITE HOUSE

Today, at 11:30 AM, the President will outline his plan to fight inflation.

“This is the Administration’s top economic priority, and we are laser-focused on doing everything we can to bring down prices,” a White House official told The Pavlovic Today.

Biden’s plan, however, is facing pushback from the Republicans. A White House official responded by saying that “Republicans love to use inflation as a political talking point, but does anyone have a clue what their plan is to bring down prices?” Official added that “the only economic plan Congressional Republican leadership has put forward is an ultra-MAGA proposal that would raise taxes on 75 million, primarily middle-class, American families while sunsetting vital programs like Social Security and Medicare.”

Taking a further swipe at the Republicans, a White House official said, “You can expect the President will talk about why that plan might make sense to people with memberships at Mar-a-Lago but would be devastating for the middle class.”

At 2:00 PM, the President will hold a bilateral meeting with Prime Minister Mario Draghi of Italy.

Second Gentleman Doug Emhoff arrived at Deoksugung Palace in central Seoul at 15:06 local time. Deoksugung is a historic palace that used to be inhabited by members of the Korean Royal Family.
