President Joe Biden signed his $1.9 trillion COVID relief plan into law Thursday, saying the ‘historic legislation’ will restore ‘the backbone of this country.’

Unlike his predecessor, Biden stated the relief checks — which could be in some direct deposit bank accounts by this weekend — will not bear his signature because this isn’t about him but rather ‘the American people.’

‘This historic legislation is about rebuilding the backbone of this country and giving people in this nation, working people, middle-class folks, people who built the country a fighting chance. That’s what the essence of this is,’ he said.

White House press secretary Jen Psaki underlined that the first round of stimulus checks will hit people’s bank accounts this weekend.

‘People can expect to start seeing direct deposits hit their bank accounts as early as this weekend. This is, of course, just the first wave,’ she said at her press briefing on Thursday. And payments to eligible Americans will continue throughout the course of the next several weeks.’

Biden will also make his first prime time address to the nation on Thursday night, exactly one year since lockdown began in the US.
