President Joe Biden will visit Wisconsin next week for his first official trip as president. Biden is set to visit Milwaukee next Tuesday, according to the White House, and will participate in a CNN town hall there. While the Biden administration did not share further details of the trip, the president has been focused heavily on addressing the coronavirus pandemic and passing his COVID-19 relief bill since he was sworn in last month. Since entering office, Biden has opted for virtual events and television interviews to sell his plan, and initially his aides expressed caution about traveling beyond Washington due to the pandemic.
