President Joe Biden promoted his vision for the future of the economy during a visit to North Carolina A&T State University.

President Biden highlighted commitments from North Carolina bus and truck manufacturers to build more electric vehicles. And he celebrated Toyota's plans to build a multimillion-dollar electric vehicle battery plant in the Greensboro area.

His message about increasing this kind of American manufacturing is very much tailored to a nation of households struggling with inflation. 

“When we build more in America, we increase economic capacity. And ultimately it helps lower everyday prices for families. That's what we're starting to see. Look around. American manufacturing is coming back.”

Biden also said he's committed to investing in science and engineering programs at historically Black colleges and universities like NC A&T in order to boost the economy.

The latest poll from High Point University shows most North Carolinians are not on board with the president's handling of inflation – just 19% said they approved.
