President will deliver a prime-time address on the continued battle for the soul of the nation Thursday outside Independence Hall in Philadelphia, the announced Monday.

Billed as a major address just over two months before the midterm elections, Biden, the said, will discuss how the nation's standing in the world and its democracy are at stake.

He will talk about the progress we have made as a nation to protect our democracy, but how our rights and freedoms are still under attack," the said. "And he will make clear who is fighting for those rights, fighting for those freedoms, and fighting for our democracy.

Biden has increasingly sought to portray the November elections as a choice for voters between ultra-MAGA Republicans a reference to former President Donald Trump's Make America Great Again campaign slogan and Democrats. He told supporters last week that they had to vote to literally save democracy once again and labeled some Republican ideology as semi-fascism."

NBC News was first to report on Biden's plans for the address.
