President Biden, White House, President Trump discussed on C-SPAN Programming

Automatic TRANSCRIPT

He's been saying that they need more aid in New York and that he hopes That leader. Schumer will be able to deliver that for them, which is just another thing that he can add to his worries back home. So let me bring it back to the president and Senate Republicans because he had told GOP lawmakers that he has quote an open door and an open mind to their ideas. But are those just words? Or is the White House committed to bipartisanship when it comes to this nearly $2 trillion coronavirus plan? You know, I don't think they're just words particular when it comes to President Biden, and he really Is committed to bipartisanship. But, uh, this is a very tough bill to force. The Republicans do not want another two trillion package after the theories that they called the bills that they saw the past year and so it is putting Joe Biden in a difficult place. I know that a lot of Republicans think that while the president himself seems to really want to compromise with them, they worry that Democratic lawmakers and even people within the White House who worked for Biden are trying to pull him farther to the left. And so we're starting to see some of this play out more. I do think that we should have more answers soon on whether President Biden is willing Tol cave to certain demands. There's been talk of changing the threshold the income threshold for the stimulus check on Dawson negotiations on other areas, and so if there is a deal, I know that President Biden and his team are hoping it'll still look a lot more like the deal that he had put forward and proposed originally. But I think we have to watch. Wait and see really how these negotiations play out Elena train. She covers the White House and Congress. Her work available and access dot com here in Washington.
