Many communities in the western U.S. have experienced their worst drought of the 21st century–56 million are living in drought conditions. Congress must pass our Build Back Better Agenda and our Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal in order to continue to tackle the climate crisis.
Together, these proposals would make the biggest investment in climate resilience in U.S. history and would tackle the climate crisis. We need to pass these bills—so that we can combat drought throughout the West, create good jobs, and preserve our planet for generations to come.
These shortages hurt our farmers, our food supply, and our economy. We don't have time to wait on this. @POTUS and I are working to pass our Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal and our Build Back Better Agenda.
Yesterday, I visited Lake Mead, which is a crucial source of water for 25 million people, including those living in Nevada, California, and Arizona. Due to the climate crisis, Lake Mead has dropped to its lowest level ever–causing water shortages for some of these communities.
Secretary Colin Powell was an incredible American. An independent thinker and a barrier breaker, he dedicated his life to defending our nation and always showed the world the best of who we are.

Most people who rely on care are women, and most people who supply care are also women. It is time to make caregiving a top priority. It is time to honor the value of care for children, for seniors, and for people with disabilities. #CareCantWait
Our Build Back Better Agenda is about giving people a meaningful opportunity to both work and care for their loved ones. For far too long, investments in care have dropped to the bottom of the priority list disproportionately affecting women.
Yesterday, I met with Prime Minister @miaamormottley. The U.S.-Barbados relationship and our commitment to the Caribbean matters. We discussed economic opportunity in the region and I thanked Prime Minister Mottley for her leadership, especially on the climate crisis.

This morning, I signed into law a bill designating the September 11th National Memorial Trail Route. We must never forget the 2,977 innocent lives we lost that day, or the incredible bravery of those who rushed into the face of danger to save lives.
In my address to the National Congress of American Indians, I talked about our Administration’s commitment to honoring tribal sovereignty and investing in Indian Country. We are committed to ensuring Tribes have a voice.
As @SecBlinken said "It's as important as ever that we stay vigilant & relentless in the fight against antisemitism & hate, as individuals, countries & coalitions of countries standing together." We must stand together to remember the #Holocaust & make sure it never happens again
Our commitment to Israel and its security is unwavering. The U.S.-Israel relationship is as strong as it has ever been. Today, I met with @yairlapid to discuss a range of issues, including the importance of advancing peace, security, and prosperity for Palestinians and Israelis.
Our nation is strongest when everyone has the opportunity to work and raise a family. Accessible and affordable childcare makes that possible. I visited a childcare center in New Jersey to discuss how our Build Back Better Agenda cuts childcare costs for families.
