President Joe Biden on Monday used his Martin Luther King Jr. Day address to tout his administration’s policies that are aimed at helping Black college students and student loan borrowers.
“I have your back” on student debt relief, Biden told the audience at an event hosted by the National Action Network, a civil rights group founded by the Rev. Al Sharpton.
Biden sharply criticized Republicans for opposing his plan while supporting pandemic relief for small businesses. “Currently the only thing blocking my plan is them suing us,” Biden said of Republican officials. “My administration is making the case to the Supreme Court, and I’m confident — I’m confident — in the legal authority to carry out our plan.”
