Description

In a press conference to mark one year in office, the president touted his administration's progress combating COVID, while conceding he'll likely need to break up his signature legislation to get it through the Senate.

He also threatened major sanctions on Russia if it invades Ukraine, but drew criticism for adding that consequences would depend on whether Russia committed a "minor incursion" or a more severe advance.

This episode: White House correspondent Scott Detrow, congressional correspondent Claudia Grisales, and national political correspondent Mara Liasson.
