President Joe Biden started his Thursday by delivering comments at the National Prayer breakfast.

Speaking at the Capitol, he delivered a message calling for unity at the 70th annual event.

“As I stand in this citadel of democracy that was attacked one year ago, the issue for us as unity. How do we unite us again? Unity’s elusive, but it’s really actually necessary. Unity doesn’t mean we have to agree on everything, but unity is where enough of us believe in a core of basic things. The common good, the general welfare, of faith in the United States of America. The United States of America,” said Biden.

Biden went on to say the best way to foster unity is to get to know people on a personal level.

He recalled days decades ago when he started in the Senate when it was common for lawmakers of both parties to eat lunch together.

The purpose of the multi-faith prayer breakfast is to bring bipartisan leaders and their religious counterparts together.

Every president since Dwight Eisenhower has headlined the event.
