Biden And Congressional Leaders To Meet "Early Next Week"


White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre has told reporters that President Biden will meet with the four leaders of Congress "early next week" for a second round of talks on the debt limit, but declined to provide a specific date.

  • Jean-Pierre: "When we have a date, certainly we will share that will all of you," adding that "productive talks" have been ongoing between negotiators representing all parties and will continue over the weekend.
  • Jean-Pierre continued: "We are not going to negotiate in public, we're gonna let these [private] conservations continue."
  • Jean-Pierre responds to a question by stating that Biden has not changed his position on negotiating over the debt limit: "Congress should get back to regular order... We cannot have a default," but reasserted that Biden is willing to have "conversations" about "budgets and appropriations."
