(NewsNation) — As President Joe Biden prepares for the State of the Union, the special guests invited to the speech could give a hint as to priorities.
NewsNation’s Leland Vittert discusses the implications of the special guests, who include Tyre Nichols’ parents and the mother of a child suffering from lead poisoning.
“One of the big pushes by this administration is infrastructure, cleaning up the water supplies: Flint, Jackson, Mississippi and the like,” Vittert explained.
He said the president is also likely to raise the topic of police reform, but there is a lack of bipartisan support on the issue.
Not all guests can serve as a policy indicator, Vittert pointed out. Bono is also on the list, and it’s unclear what political issues he might represent.
