President Joe Biden pledged to “move heaven and earth” to rebuild the Francis Scott Key Bridge. He continued: “We’re going get it up and running again as soon as possible -15,000 jobs depend on that port. “And we’re going do everything we can to protect those jobs. and help those workers.” The closure of one of the U.S. East Coast's major ports threatens to disrupt supplies of goods from cars, to coal and other commodities like sugar. It could create bottlenecks and increase delays and costs on the Northeastern seaboard, experts say. The port handles the most car imports and is among the largest for coal exports. #biden #baltimore #president Subscribe to The Telegraph with our special offer: just £1 for 3 months.
