WATCH: President Biden addresses Texas school shooting

President Joe Biden addressed the country following a school shooting that killed at least 18 children and three adults and wounded several others Tuesday in Texas.

It was the deadliest shooting at a U.S. grade school since the shocking attack at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Connecticut, almost a decade ago.

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said Biden was briefed on the shooting on Air Force One as he returned from a five-day trip to Asia. Biden delivered his remarks from the White House.
