I'll answer Joe's question in one sentence:
We led the world economically and had the most modern infrastructure when we manufactured things in the USA and the reason we were able to manufacture things was because the government did not overtax and overregulate businesses as it does now.
Now a brief commentary on Joe's speech. While LaGuardia Airport may be old and in need of updating, it does not appear to be an airport in a third world country, it is not close. Most of the things that have not been updated over the years, such as runway length, have been stymied by government regulations. Biden, as usual, merely has had another case of oral diarrhea due to not engaging his brain to digest the facts before opening his mouth to spew his babble.
All the best,
