President Biden kicked off a Western swing this week, stopping first in Phoenix, Arizona, where he visited a small Latino-owned business run by longtime community activists, and delivered new funding from his CHIPS and Science Act that will create nearly 30,000 jobs.

The president also traveled to Reno, Nevada, this week to speak about the actions he’s taking to lower housing costs for the American people. It’s a stark contrast to Donald Trump who spent his career keeping rents high, putting homeownership out of reach from working people, and would drive up costs to enrich his wealthy friends if he gets another term.

With all of the historic accomplishments President Biden and Vice President Harris are delivering for hardworking families, it’s no surprise that MAGA Republicans keep trying to take the credit. One big problem: They voted against these achievements, and if it were up to Trump or other MAGA Republicans, Americans wouldn’t be reaping the benefits.
