President Joe Biden visited Pittsburgh on Friday, hours after a bridge collapse that injured at least 10 people. Biden was already scheduled to visit the Steel City to make remarks at Mill 19 about his recently passed bipartisan infrastructure bill.
“It’s incredible,” Biden said while visiting the site of the collapse. “I didn’t realize there are literally more bridges in Pittsburgh than in any other city in the world. Did you know? More than in Venice.”
