President Joe Biden says he wants the federal government to fund the reconstruction of the Francis Scott Key Bridge in Baltimore to reopen it “as soon as humanly possible.”

President Biden only answered a few questions from reporters, but when asked if the company operating the ship that collided with the bridge will be held financially responsible, the president said, “That could be,” adding that he did not want to wait for this to happen and expressing the need to make the funding available immediately.

The Port of Baltimore is currently closed to shipping traffic.
