Biden praised his own work on infrastructure investments by signing a bipartisan infrastructure bill in 2021, The Hill reported. However, she said Trump’s “infrastructure week” became a “laughing stock” during the previous US administration. “He didn’t build anything,” Biden said at the event. “Not a single thing.”
Biden previously joked that “infrastructure week” was little more than bluster during the Trump administration. When the $1 trillion infrastructure bill was signed into law, Biden declared that “it was finally infrastructure week!” The term has been part of the political lexicon for years, ever since Trump held a week of events in 2017 aimed at bolstering support for a trillion-dollar U.S. infrastructure effort. The week was marred in part by former FBI Director James Comey’s high-profile testimony on Capitol Hill after Trump fired him.
Trump, meanwhile, is known for his prowess in Manhattan real estate and for being behind some of the famous buildings in the US, mainly in New York, that bear his name. Biden is in New York to attend the UN General Assembly, where he is scheduled to speak on Tuesday. Trump currently leads the Republican field in polls, setting up a likely rematch between Biden and Trump in the 2024 election.
