President Joe Biden will visit Covington, Kentucky on January 4, 2023. During his trip to Covington, he will deliver remarks regarding the state’s infrastructure and plans to revitalize marginalized communities. Not to be forgotten, the President is also expected to celebrate a $1.6 billion commitment to build a new Ohio River bridge.
“[President Biden will explain] how his economic plan is rebuilding our infrastructure, creating good-paying jobs that don’t require a four-year degree and revitalizing communities left behind,” a release from the White House reads.
President Joe Biden will not be visiting Covington, Kentucky alone. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell will also be in attendance alongside Governor Mike DeWine, Senator Sherrod Brown and Governor Andy Beshear. By bringing together a bipartisan group of lawmakers, Biden aims to build a better working relationship heading into the third year of his term.
“Our politics has gotten so angry, so mean, so partisan. And too often we see each other as enemies, not as neighbors; as Democrats or Republicans, not as fellow Americans,” President Joe Biden stated.
“We’ve become too divided.”
Biden will not be the only member of his administration traveling this week. Vice President Kamala Harris will visit Chicago and Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg will visit Connecticut.
