5 things to know Tuesday

Biden departs D.C. for Milwaukee to make case for coronavirus relief plan

President Joe Biden is scheduled to travel to Wisconsin on Tuesday, one of the first official stops of his presidency, where he’ll participate in a CNN Town Hall at 9 p.m. ET. The White House said Biden will use the trip to make the case for passage of the $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief plan. The town hall will be held at Pabst Theater, which hasn’t hosted a big event since March 2020 due to the pandemic. The event will be socially distanced, with the president fielding questions from a small, invitation-only audience of Democrats, Republicans and independents. Anderson Cooper will serve as moderator. It’s scheduled to run for an hour. 

One of Joe Biden's campaign themes was unity, but the new president's administration is already arguing with Republicans on what constitutes unity.
