According to the White House advisory earlier this week, Joe Biden had planned to stress upon the “the importance of COVID-19 vaccine requirements for businesses” during his stop in Chicago.

Officials stated about the trip cancellation, “There will be more to come on his engagement over the next couple of days, and the trip to Chicago to discuss the ongoing importance of getting people vaccinated will be rescheduled,”

“There is a strong sense that progress is being made, and the President is staying to continue his engagement,” – officials familiar with negotiations said.
