NOW: Joe Biden makes campaign stop at Milwaukee’s Mitchell International Airport

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Joe Biden made the third stop of his presidential campaign in Wisconsin Friday night, Oct. 30.

It comes just four days before Election Day, in what is expected to be a tight Wisconsin race.

Biden said the president’s handling of the COVID-19 pandemic is costing Wisconsin lives and jobs.

“Wisconsin is down 20,000 manufacturing jobs since this pandemic began,” Biden said.

The former vice president blamed President Donald Trump for the lack of a recent COVID-19 relief package out of Congress, and said he would be better at working across the aisle.

“We’re going to bring the Republicans and Democrats together and deliver economic relief for working families and schools and businesses," Biden said. "I promise you.”

Biden said he plans to raise taxes on corporations and some of the wealthiest Americans, singling out the president for his taxes specifically.

“Why should a firefighter, why should a sheriff, why should a cop, why should an educator, why should a nurse pay a higher tax rate, which you do, than they pay," Biden said.

Biden also claimed he is more in touch with the average American than Donald Trump.

“I’ve dealt with guys like Trump my whole life," Biden said. "Guys who think they’re better than you because they have a lot of money…the people who built this country weren’t Wall Street and investment bankers and CEOs. They were hard-working Americans. Middle class folks."

The Biden campaign could not say if this was Biden's last state visit before the election.

Biden did say if he wins, he will be back in Milwaukee.
