Today on Stateside, President Joe Biden visited Michigan on Tuesday to tour the Ford that will produce the new all-electric F-150 Lightning. Large crowds of protesters in Dearborn wanted to draw attention to something else though: Biden’s handling of the violence between Hamas and Israel in the Gaza Strip. Plus, we’ll talk about how Michigan’s native trumpeter swan went from nearly extinct to a conservation success story.
