Marine One touched down on the wide flat lawn of the Ellipse at 11:41 am. 

President Biden walked out with the First Lady and Biden walked over to talk to the press.  He started talking about his infrastructure proposal and took issue with Republicans saying there were things in there not related to infrastructure. He said that clean water is infrastructure, investing in schools is infrastructure, high-speed rail is infrastructure. "That's infrastructure," he said. 

"I'm going to push as hard as I can," Biden said. 

"Everybody else in the rest of the world is investing in infrastructure and we're going to do it here."

Biden answered a question about the corporate tax rate and defended his position on raising it. He spoke for about 2 or 3 minutes then turned and stepped into the black limousine behind him.
