I was honored to welcome Miss Opal Lee to the White House today. A daughter of Texas. And the grandmother of the movement to make Juneteenth a federal holiday.

Today, I had the honor of signing a bill to officially make Juneteenth a federal holiday. With this important step, all Americans can feel the power of the day, learn from our history, celebrate our progress, and grapple with the distance we still have to travel.

We cannot rest until the promise of equality is fulfilled — for every one of us, in every corner of this nation. That is the meaning of Juneteenth.

Today marks six years since a white supremacist took nine precious lives at Mother Emanuel in an act of domestic terrorism. We must honor their lives with action, including reducing gun violence and addressing domestic terrorism.

A year ago, more than 1.5 million Americans filed initial unemployment insurance claims. Last week, that number was 376,000. That’s more than just an economy on the rise — those are lives back on track after an unprecedented crisis. That’s our economic plan at work.

The fact that projected economic growth is near a 40-year high isn’t an accident — it’s because our plans are working.

A big win for the American people. There’s no better day than today to sign up for quality, affordable health care at HealthCare.gov. With millions of people relying on the Affordable Care Act for coverage, it remains, as ever, a BFD. And it’s here to stay.
Today’s Supreme Court ruling once again underscored the incredible strength of the ACA. A record 31 million people have enrolled in health care through the law – 1.2 million more signed up using the special enrollment period, open through 8/15. Sign up at HealthCare.gov.

That’s progress, folks.
New unemployment numbers: while weekly data can be volatile, the four-week average for initial unemployment claims declined yet again – and is now below 400,000 for the first time since March 2020. Thanks to President Biden’s economic plan – Americans are getting back to work.

That’s a wrap, folks. I’m on my way back to the White House from my first overseas trip as president. After a busy week, it’s clear America is back, our alliances are stronger than ever, and we’re ready to tackle the toughest global challenges of our time alongside our allies.

Today we passed a grim milestone: 600,000 lives lost from COVID-19. My heart goes out to all those who’ve lost a loved one. I know that black hole that seems to consume you, but a time will come when their memory brings a smile to your lips before it brings a tear to your eyes.

Domestic terrorism is a stain on the soul of our nation, and a threat to our democracy — we need to confront its rise head-on. That’s why my Administration is releasing the first-ever National Strategy for Countering Domestic Terrorism. whitehouse.gov/briefing-room…

Yesterday, I had the chance to visit the 9/11 memorial at NATO Headquarters. It's a solemn reminder of that awful day and the thousands of Americans we lost. In that moment of peril, our Allies were there for us — and we must always be there for them.

On this ninth anniversary of DACA, Dreamers deserve lasting stability in the only home they have ever known. Congress must find a way to pass legislation with a path to citizenship for Dreamers, farm workers, and TPS recipients.

Today I met with European Council President Charles Michel and European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen and we reached an agreement in the 16-year-long Boeing-Airbus dispute. This deal will ensure a level playing field for American workers and companies abroad.
