President Biden on Wednesday pitched the bipartisan infrastructure deal along with his plan to boost spending on education, child care and health care during a trip to Crystal Lake, Ill., a conservative area in a liberal state. The White House is angling to pass the latter with the support of only Democrats.

In a dig at former president Donald Trump, Biden said, “We’re not going to have 40 weeks of ‘This is infrastructure.’ ”

Before heading to Illinois, the president convened leaders from the State Department, the Justice Department and other agencies to discuss ransomware attacks and the government’s efforts to counter them.

Here’s what to know:

  • Trump announced plans to file class-action lawsuits targeting Facebook, Google and Twitter and their CEOs, escalating his long-running battle with the companies following their suspensions of his accounts.
  • Biden said he was “shocked and saddened” to learn of the assassination of Haitian President Jovenel Moïse, a killing Biden called “horrific” in a statement issued by the White House.
  • White House press secretary Jen Psaki pushed back on Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (Ga.) and other Republicans who have questioned a new door-to-door push from the federal government to educate people about the value of coronavirus vaccines.
