President Joe Biden Monday was set to visit New York Monday afternoon for his second campaign trip of the month to the Big Apple.

The president will touch town at JFK International Airport then fly by helicopter to lower Manhattan, with arrival at Wall Street at around 2:30 p.m.

Biden will participate in what the White House characterized as a “campaign meeting” before returning to the heliport and departing around 6:30 p.m., according to his schedule.

There were no details released on the location of Biden’s planned event or where traffic may be snarled due to his motorcade.

Just two weeks ago, Biden raced into town for a fundraising visit, raising millions in three separate events.

Although he faces potential protests votes over his support of Israel’s war in Gaza in Tuesday’s Michigan Democratic primary, the rain-making trip to Manhattan shows he is focused squarely on the looming general election against former President Donald Trump.

With only token primary opposition, Biden and the Democrats have built a huge campaign war chest that dwarfs that of Trump’s GOP.

Biden raked more than $42 million for his Democratic allies in January, with $130 million in their campaign coffers, compared to just $30 million for the Republicans.

Trump, on the other hand, has had to deal with a competitive primary up to now, with ex-UN ambassador Nikki Haley insisting she won’t drop out. He also faces four looming criminal trials on a total of 91 felony counts.
