Watch live as White House press secretary Jen Psaki holds briefing

Jen Psaki is holding a briefing with journalists hours after the Biden administration asked the US Supreme Court to block a Texas law banning most abortions.

The Biden administration hopes its multitrillion-dollar package will pass in time for UN climate talks later this month.
