Biden to showcase Baltimore as fertile ground for his agenda

Port of Baltimore

BALTIMORE (AP) — When Donald Trump was in the White House, he referred to Baltimore as a “disgusting, rat and rodent infested mess.”

But for President Joe Biden, the city is the first stop in what will likely be a national tour to showcase the value of his agenda.

Administration officials say Biden on Wednesday plans to hold up Baltimore’s port as a blueprint for the rest of the nation on how to reduce shipping bottlenecks that have held back the recovery from the coronavirus pandemic.

Biden sees in Baltimore a test case for his agenda that goes beyond the ports to include child tax credits modernizing rail transit for the region.
