President Joe Biden arrived Tuesday afternoon in Minnesota on Air Force One. Biden traveled to Rosemount where he visited Dakota County Technical College, which has programs to train the next generation of workers to build, operate, and maintain infrastructure supported by the bipartisan infrastructure law.

President Joe Biden used his first Minnesota visit since being elected to take a victory lap on the $1 trillion infrastructure package, promising an infusion of money to repair the state's roads and bridges, create construction jobs and "rebuild the backbone of this nation."

Standing on the floor of a heavy machinery shop at Rosemount's Dakota County Technical College on Tuesday, Biden painted a picture of a future where electric cars can be plugged in alongside highways and where every household in Minnesota has access to high-speed internet. He promised a state that's more resilient to wildfires, heavy rains and other major weather events caused by climate change.

"These are the jobs of today and tomorrow," Biden said. "We're going to help America win the competition in the 21st century. We're getting back in the game."
