Tomorrow, President Biden’s schedule includes signing an executive order related to American manufacturing and American workers that is open to an expanded press pool.

It’s unclear if he will take questions from reporters, but this setting would make that logistically easy.

Miss today's exclusive interview with Dr. Deborah Birx?

Catch an extended version of @margbrennan's in-depth conversation streaming live on @CBSNLive at 4 PM and again at 9 PM ET

Remarkable and revealing interview by @margbrennan that explains the weight Dr. Birx so clearly carried during all the Task Force briefings.
@PaulaReidCBS and I previously reported that other members also wanted to quit, but they believed their work was making a difference.

All journalists are humans with feelings and emotions and opinions and biases. Journalists should be judged by the fairness of their *work* - not a random tweet or passing comment or private email in which those human biases are expressed

Dr. Birx said on @FaceTheNation that people in the Trump White House didn’t push mask wearing because they thought testing was adequate to protect him.

But Trump himself said he wasn’t tested daily. We still don’t know when he last tested negative before testing positive.

Demoted VOA reporter Patsy Widakuswara (@pwidakuswara) is back on White House beat, as of today.

She was reassigned last week after asking pointed Qs to Pompeo and the then VOA director about Trump & US standing in the world. VOA director & deputy replaced yesterday.

President Biden is calling a "full-scale wartime effort" to fight the pandemic, and get the country back to normal. On his first full day in office, the president described a desperate situation, likely to get worse before it gets better.

@Weijia reports from the White House.

As he tries to convince Congress to pass an economic relief package, today the President is taking executive actions to provide financial aid to Americans.

This brings his 3-day total of orders and actions to 29. Our report this morning:

THIS HOUR: After the House did so, the Senate is now voting on a waiver for Lloyd Austin to be Secretary of Defense. The legislation provides for an exception to a law barring former uniformed military leaders from running DOD for 7 years.

Dr. Fauci called it "a liberating feeling" to be able to brief the public about what he knows and about the science without worrying about displeasing the President.

President Biden urged Americans to end what he called an "uncivil war." His first act as president was holding a moment of silence for the more than 400,000 Americans who died from #COVID19.

@weijia has more on @POTUS' first day in office after a historic #inauguration.

Quoted @JavelinDC

The intrepid ⁦@weijia⁩ is writing OTHER, a memoir about conflicting identity from growing up in West Virginia to asking tough questions in the White House press room.

Some personal news:

I was born in China. I grew up in my family’s restaurant in rural West Virginia. And here I am, covering The White House.

Often, I’ve felt like an “Other”— an all too familiar feeling for many proud Americans.

I hope you’ll see some of your story in mine.
