Joe Biden delivered a speech highlighting his “Bidenomics” economic policies in the battleground state of Milwaukee on Tuesday, 15 August.

The US president’s visit came a week before Republicans were due to descend upon the state for the first GOP presidential debate.

“Bidenomics,” named by the White House, is the Biden administration’s plan to “grow the economy from the middle out and the bottom up” centred around three pillars: making smart public investments, empowering and educating workers to grow the middle class, and promoting competition to lower costs and help entrepreneurs and small businesses thrive.

On Tuesday, Mr Biden also toured clean energy manufacturer Ingeteam, a company which the White House says has plans to hire 100 workers using Bipartisan Infrastructure Law money to start producing EV charging stations domestically.

Republicans will hold their first presidential primary debate in Milwaukee on 23 August.

It is not confirmed whether former president Donald Trump will boycott or hold a competing event.
