Trump is also scheduled to speak at the conference on Sunday afternoon, marking his first major address since leaving the White House in January.

The House voted 219-222 to pass Biden’s $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief package early Saturday morning. But despite the bill's passage Saturday, progressive Democrats suffered a disappointing blow follow their push for a minimum wage hike. 

The Senate parliamentarian ruled Thursday night that raising the minimum wage to $15 per hour went against the upper chamber’s rules on budget reconciliation, which Democrats are relying on to pass the bill. The move eradicated any hope the provision would remain in the legislation once it reaches the Senate.

However, following the parliamentarian's decision, House Democrats left the provision in the bill they later passed, arguing that it was up to the upper chamber's lawmakers to take it out.

Once the Senate votes on an amended version, it goes back to the House for passage again before landing on Biden’s desk.

Psaki will make an appearance on CNN's "State of the Union" and "Fox News Sunday" this weekend. 

Amid the struggle in Washington to pass coronavirus relief, the U.S. continues to forge ahead with its COVID-19 vaccination effort. The Biden administration has been working to administer 100 million vaccine doses within his first 100 days in office, and on Thursday he marked the 50 millionth shot administered.

On Friday, a Food and Drug Administration (FDA) advisory panel voted to recommend the agency grant an emergency-use authorization for Johnson & Johnson’s one-shot vaccine, likely leading to a quick approval.

The addition of Johnson & Johnson’s vaccine will make three vaccines authorized for use, in addition to the ones from Pfizer and Moderna which require a two-shot regimen.
