IN THE STATES: Bidenomics Booms As Trump And MAGA Republicans Threaten

On Wednesday, President Biden traveled to Milwaukee, Wisconsin to highlight how Black-owned small businesses in Milwaukee and across the country are booming at historic rates thanks to Bidenomics. Across America, Black small business ownership is growing at its fastest pace in 30 years – no thanks to MAGA Republicans, who opposed the investments the Biden-Harris administration delivered.
