While many Democrats are either publicly or privately relishing the spectacle of Donald Trump surrendering to authorities in New York on Tuesday, no one is likely more jazzed about it than the Biden White House.

Trump's perp walk is giving President Joe Biden a chance to remind voters that while one of the two major-party 2020 candidates is getting fingerprinted, the other is tending to the nation's business.

That's exactly why Biden was in Fridley, Minnesota, on Monday talking jobs.

"Federal investment attracts private investment. It creates jobs and industries, and it demonstrates we're all in this together,” Biden said Monday during his visit to the Cummins manufacturing plant. "I'm here to talk about what we're doing to invest in America, invest in Minnesota, and the progress we've made in building an economy from the middle out and the bottom up."

While Biden's stop during his Investing in America tour certainly won't outshine Trump's perp walk in national headlines, it most certainly did make news locally in outlets such as the Star Tribune, Minnesota Public Radio, and the Minneapolis Fox affiliate, KMSP.

Before Biden's visit, Cummins announced it would be adding 100 jobs in Fridley along with making a $1 billion investment in its engine manufacturing plants in Indiana, North Carolina, and New York.

So while you're watching Trump's perp walk on Tuesday in New York, just imagine how much fun the Biden White House is having.
