GREENSBORO, N.C. (WBTV) – President Joe Biden visited the Tar Heel state on Thursday.

He traveled to Greensboro to speak at North Carolina A&T State University. The president also received a tour of the school’s new Harold L. Martin Sr. Engineering Research and Innovation Complex, which opened in February.

President Biden addressed the idea of “Made in America.” He said he supported the Bipartisan Innovation Act which, with the help of the American Rescue Plan, says will lead us on the path of “economic renewal.”

Biden says since he’s been in office the economy has seen some major wins including a declining unemployment rate, where more than 400,000 jobs were created.

But he says more work needs to be done to increase the number of domestic manufacturing jobs, which is why he’s supporting legislation that will create more of these jobs right here in America and increase supply chain security.

“The Bipartisan Innovation Act I mentioned is going to provide 90 billion dollars in research and development, STEM education, manufacturing, all those elements in the supply chain, we need to produce those products right here in America,” he said.

According to White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki, Biden met faculty and students who are studying robotics and cybersecurity.
