U.S. President Joe Biden marked his 100th day in office with a trip to Georgia on Thursday, visiting former President Jimmy Carter and former First Lady Rosalynn Carter, and pitching his plans to spend trillions of dollars to rebuild the U.S. economy.
After limited time on the road due to the health crisis, the president is stepping up his travel plans. The president is appealing to Americans to support his “blue-collar blueprint” for change which he outlined in his first speech to Congress the night before.
The legislation would invest a combined $4 trillion in families and infrastructure to rebuild the middle class. Biden’s visit comes as Georgia emerges as a hot spot in the nationwide battle over voting rights.
