The president of the United States, Joe Biden, will be in Greensboro on Thursday, April 14, but so far the White House has not released to the public information about exactly where in Greensboro POTUS will spend his time.
According to the News & Observer, Biden will be speaking at North Carolina A&T State University, the largest Historically Black College and University (HBCU) in the country.
The News & Observer also reports that Biden will be speaking about his efforts to fight inflation.
In Greensboro people can expect to experience traffic issues as the streets are cleared for Biden to make his way from the Piedmont Triad International Airport (PTIA) to NC A&T State University, but the route that Biden will take has not been announced, which makes it difficult to plan to avoid problem areas.
If Biden has any other stops planned in Greensboro they have not been announced.
One thing is certain, Chairman of the Guilford County Board of Commissioners Skip Alston would love to get Biden to visit the International Civil Rights Center and Museum in downtown Greensboro, but there is no indication that will happen.
If you happen to be a drone flyer, the Greensboro Police Department is asking you to take the day off.
A press release from Greensboro Police Capt. M.J. Harris states, “The Greensboro Police Department in cooperation with the Secret Service is asking the local public to discontinue all flights of Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems on April 14, 2022. Small unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) include but are not limited to model aircrafts, unmanned aircrafts (UA), and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) and all commonly referred to as “Drones.” The Greensboro Police Department appreciates the support citizens continue to offer as we partner to keep our community safe.”
There are frequent reports on social media of Air Force One being seen taking off and landing at PTIA. Those reports are incorrect, since the presidential plane is only designated as Air Force One when the president is on board.
But on Thursday, April 14, it actually will be Air Force One landing and taking off at PTIA.
