Let me start on a serious note. Jill, Kamala, Doug, and I, and members of our administration are here to send a message to the country and, quite frankly, to the world: The free press is a pillar -- maybe the pillar -- of a free society, not the enemy. [Applause]

And there are other Americans being unjustly held in Iran, Venezuela, China, and elsewhere. Their stories may not make headlines or hashtags, but every day -- every day, their family looks at that empty chair at the kitchen table -- birthdays, anniversaries, holidays without them. The pain of living in limbo. In a sense, it's almost worse than the pain of having lost a child and looking at that empty chair. The stress of not knowing. The sorrow of uncertainty.
