President Biden Cheers Debt Ceiling 'Crisis Averted' From Oval Office
He also used the moment to plead with Americans to bridge their divides
President Joe Biden declared a "crisis averted" on Friday in his first address from the White House's Oval Office, touting the passage of a bill to suspend the U.S. debt ceiling and avoid economic catastrophe.
Biden used the moment to plead with Americans to bridge their divides, saying his compromise with top Congress Republican Kevin McCarthy showed what could be done.
"No matter how tough our politics gets, we need to see each other not as adversaries but as fellow Americans," he said, asking Americans to "stop shouting, lower the temperature and work together to pursue progress."
