President Biden hit the road this week in Georgia and Pennsylvania, the beginning of a public relations tour to pitch the American public on his infrastructure proposals.

The president highlighted his proposal during his first address to a joint a session of Congress on Wednesday. His infrastructure plan, which would invest $4 trillion total, would invest in roadways and broadband access as well as child care and family leave.

Following the address to Congress, Sen. Tim ScottTimothy (Tim) Eugene ScottPolice reform talks hit familiar stumbling block Biden adds pressure to congressional talks with self-imposed deadlines Republicans can win back control in 2022 — if they don't 'cancel' themselves first MORE (R-S.C.) gave the GOP rebuttal to Biden’s speech Wednesday. Scott, the only Black Republican senator in the upper chamber, argued that Biden was dividing the country and out of touch with his talk of bipartisanship. 

Scott will appear on CBS’s “Face the Nation” on Sunday. 

The president traveled to Georgia on Thursday to plug his plan, as well as mark his 100th day in office. On Friday, he traveled to Pennsylvania, where he plugged his proposal and celebrated the 50th anniversary of Amtrak. Biden has a personal connection of Amtrak — he rode the train into Washington, D.C., during his time as a Delaware senator. 

The White House said Saturday that Biden will visit Louisiana next Thursday to continue his tour.

Despite enthusiasm from most Democrats, Biden’s plan could face road blocks in a 50-50 Senate.

Democrats are trying to move the proposal as quickly as possible, but Sen.

“We have learned that lesson in the past. I think we should have our ears open, we should listen to any great ideas, any good ideas that Republicans have. But obviously it cannot be an endless process. It has to move very quickly,” Sanders said.

Meanwhile, the U.S. has begun the process of preparing to withdraw troops form Afghanistan.

The White House said Thursday that the military officially began the withdrawal, with the goal of completing the move by Sept. 11, the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

About 2,500 U.S. troops are still in Afghanistan.

But two representatives for Al Qaeda told CNN that the war against the U.S. “will be continuing on all other fronts” despite the withdrawal.
