President Biden and several of his top Cabinet officials will travel across the country over the next two days to tout “Bidenomics” as polls continue to show strong disapproval of the administration’s economic policies.
Biden will travel Thursday to South Carolina to announce new spending on clean energy manufacturing, according to a White House official. Vice President Kamala Harris will travel Thursday to the Gila River Indian Reservation in Arizona to highlight how the infrastructure law will boost spending on Native American land.
Other top officials traveling Thursday on behalf of the administration include Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg to Washington, Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra to Ohio, and Interior Secretary Debra Haaland to New York.
Biden had a 60% disapproval rating on the economy in Fox News’ June poll, which was a 7% improvement from the prior year.
Small Business Administration head Isabel Guzman travels Thursday to California. Mitch Landrieu, a senior adviser to Biden, will host an event Thursday in New Mexico with Democratic Gov. Lujan Grisham.
Buttigieg, Becerra, Haaland and Landrieu each have a second trip scheduled Friday for similar events.

“‘Bidenomics’ is high taxes, crippling regulations, crushing inflation, war on American energy, soaring energy costs, job killing globalist intentional agreements like the Paris Climate Accord, and total economic surrender to China and other foreign countries,” former President Donald Trump said in a campaign statement last week.
