In Minnesota, President Biden Starts Rural America Tour

This is barnstorming at its best

President Joe Biden on Wednesday said consolidation in meat processing and retail chains over the decades has hurt U.S. farmers and announced $5 billion in new investments benefiting rural Americans during a visit to a family farm in Minnesota.

The trip, the first stop in what the White House is billing as a two-week "barnstorming" tour, will also see 13 top administration officials visit rural places in 15 states, including election battlegrounds like Michigan, Pennsylvania and Arizona. They will highlight investments in rural communities, where one in five Americans live.

"When rural America does well, when Indian country does well, we all do well," Biden said during a visit to Dutch Creek Farms, a hog, soybean and corn farm now being run by a third generation of the Kluver family.
