Biden speaks publicly after the tragic event at the school in Texas, where 19

President Joe Biden has spoken publicly after Tuesday night's horrific shooting at a Texas elementary school that left 18 minors dead.

A clearly emotional Biden delivered the speech in front of the American nation from Roosevelt's room in the White House about an hour after returning from a five-day trip from Asia.

"I hoped that when I became president, I would not have to do this anymore," Biden began. "Another massacre. Uvalde, Texas. An elementary school. Beautiful students, second graders, third graders, fourth graders," he said.

"As a nation we must ask when we will rise before the arms hall," he said, raising his voice. "I'm sick and tired of it - we have to act."

He also called on Congress to take action on arms.
