President Biden to visit Seattle next week to discuss inflation, clean energy: White House

The White House announced Friday that President Joe Biden will travel to Seattle next week to focus attention on his efforts to tame inflation and bolster support for clean energy, part of the president’s plan to tackle climate change.

Biden is expected to be in Seattle on Earth Day next Friday although his itinerary for the trip was not immediately disclosed, according to the White House.

The president is slated to travel first to Portland to tout the recently passed Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, which allocated billions of dollars to local communities to fund needed capital improvement projects.

The White House did not immediately disclose details of his Thursday trip to Portland or who he planned to meet with.
