Let’s fix them all.

President Joe Biden’s New Year’s resolution to spend less time in Washington and more time connecting with Americans became even more compelling Friday on a presidential trip to Pittsburgh.

After a bridge collapsed in the Pennsylvania town, Biden made a detour to the site, a last-minute change from his previously planned schedule.

What had originally been intended as a way for Biden to promote a legislative achievement, and perhaps encourage others, was met with the stark reality of a disaster.

With the smell of gas still in the air from the accident, Biden spoke to local officials about what happened and sent a broader message to the country.

“We’re going to fix them all,” Biden said of the bridges in Pittsburgh and the roughly 45,000 across the country classified as in poor condition. “We are going to send the money.”
