NEW YORK -- President Joe Biden is in New York City on Monday for a campaign event and a taping in Manhattan.

Mr. Biden landed in Queens this afternoon and his visit is expected to tie-up traffic around the city. 

Roads were blocked and traffic came to a standstill when the president last visited on Feb. 7. His arrival shut down several major thoroughfares in Manhattan, causing standstill traffic for hours.

That visit was met with hundreds of Palestinian supporters who gathered around Columbus Circle to protest as his motorcade drove past. 

Police said the demonstration was peaceful, and no arrests were reported.
