President Joe Biden will not make any public appearances on Thursday due to the ongoing storm that will likely bring between 1 to 4 inches of snow to Washington, D.C., though Vice President Kamala Harris will continue with her scheduled events.
The White House announced at 8 a.m. on Thursday that they were calling a “lid,” meaning that the president would not be making any public appearances or travel anywhere for the rest of the day. White House press secretary Jen Psaki said that she will still hold her daily press briefing at 12:30 p.m., but will hold it by phone.
Biden was scheduled to travel to Portage, Michigan, but the trip was canceled Wednesday night. Harris did not cancel an event that was scheduled for 11:15 a.m. in the Eisenhower Executive Office Building next to the White House, according to the New York Post. There, she took part in a webcast conversation with various female members of Congress and women’s group about the coronavirus stimulus plan that Democrats have proposed.
The Post notes that Biden has no scheduled events or briefings on his public schedule after his regular intelligence briefing and a private meeting on the coronavirus pandemic, both of which were set for Thursday morning.
