President Biden and First Lady Jill Biden attend the memorial for Capitol police officer Brian Sicknick.

President Joe Biden arrived in Texas on Friday on a trip that would emphasize the region’s recovery after a deadly winter storm cut power across most states.

After surveying damage caused by last week’s deadly winter hurricane, which left Texas paralyzed, Mr. Biden and several top Republican and Democratic leaders used Friday’s first disaster visit of his presidency to call for unity.

Details of the proposal are still in progress, and White House press secretary Jen Psaki declined requests to talk about the details before the COVID aid bill is passed Congress, but the link to the Texas disaster seems clear.
