Facing GOP opposition, Biden seeks to redefine bipartisanship

Facing GOP opposition, Biden seeks to redefine bipartisanship

To hear President Biden and his team tell it, a successful bipartisan bill need not attract a single Republican vote.Biden pushed his $1.9 trillion covid relief bill through the Senate with the support of all 50 Democrats and nary a Republican, yet later declared it a resounding bipartisan triumph.The president and his advisers have also signaled that, while they are planning robust outreach to Republican lawmakers, they are prepared to pass his infrastructure plan on the votes of Democrats alone — and call it a bipartisan victory. “If you looked up ‘bipartisan’ in the dictionary, I think...

How Biden’s support for the All-Star Game boycott divided Democrats in Georgia

How Biden’s support for the All-Star Game boycott divided Democrats in Georgia

The question should have been a simple one.President Biden had just finished delivering remarks outlining his infrastructure plan when he sat down for an interview with ESPN’s Sage Steele in Pittsburgh on March 31. Midway through the conversation, the “SportsCenter” co-host noted that “sports and politics cross paths sometimes” and pressed the president on the campaign by some Major League Baseball players to move the All-Star Game out of Atlanta in response to Georgia’s controversial new voting restrictions.Biden’s answer was swift — and seemingly definitive.“I think today’s professional...

How Joe Biden tamed the left — at least for now

How Joe Biden tamed the left — at least for now

ADJoe Biden launched the early months of his presidency with a one-two combination that’s gone a long way toward taming the party’s restive left wing: Listen a lot, and back many of the policies that activists have long wanted.The embrace of sweeping liberal ideas is dramatic — with about passed and another proposed, along with new taxes focused on wealthy individuals and companies to help pay for this and additional spending.Those policies have been paired with steady attention from Biden’s top aides, including Chief of Staff Ron Klain, who are in frequent touch with groups that have long...

‘Oh God I miss him’: Biden keeps returning to Trump as a cause of nation’s troubles

‘Oh God I miss him’: Biden keeps returning to Trump as a cause of nation’s troubles

ADPresident Biden mentioned him early and often. He mentioned him overtly and obliquely. And he mentioned him on a range of issues, from immigration to human rights to Afghanistan.In Biden’s on Thursday, the specter of former president Donald Trump loomed awkwardly — part foil, part scapegoat and, once, as a punchline.“My predecessor, oh God I miss him,” Biden said at one point, seeming to channel the just-can’t-quit-him fascination with the former president. A reporter had asked if Biden planned to run again in 2024, noting that unlike Trump, “you haven’t set up a reelection campaign yet,...

‘No end in sight’: Inside the Biden administration’s failure to contain the border surge

‘No end in sight’: Inside the Biden administration’s failure to contain the border surge

ADShortly before Christmas last year, Susan Rice and Jake Sullivan, two top advisers to President-elect Joe Biden, sat for with EFE, a Spanish wire service, to issue a stark warning to migrants considering journeying north to the nation’s southern border: Don’t come now — but help is on the way.The next day, Biden was similarly pointed, saying his administration — while eager to roll back Donald Trump’s immigration policies — first needed to to avoid winding up with “2 million people on our border.”Less than a month later, the new president began tearing down some of the guardrails himself....

Ten minutes at the teleprompter: Inside Trump’s failed attempt to calm coronavirus fears

Ten minutes at the teleprompter: Inside Trump’s failed attempt to calm coronavirus fears

ADIn the most scripted of presidential settings, a to the nation, President Trump decided to ad-lib — and his errors triggered a market meltdown, panicked travelers overseas and crystallized for his critics just how dangerously he has fumbled his management of the coronavirus.Even Trump — a man practically allergic to admitting mistakes — knew he’d screwed up by declaring Wednesday night that his ban on travel from Europe would include cargo and trade, and acknowledged as much to aides in the Oval Office as soon as he’d finished speaking, according to one senior administration official and...

Narrow relief bill victory provides warning signs for broader Democratic agenda

Narrow relief bill victory provides warning signs for broader Democratic agenda

ADPresident Biden and Democrats hailed the massive $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief package that passed the Senate this weekend as a triumph of Democratic ideals, with Biden calling the legislation “significant” and “historic.”But the bill’s successful passage — on a tissue-thin party-line vote, after more than 24 hours of Senate debate — belied the broader challenges facing Biden as he tries to navigate intraparty divisions to push through an ambitious agenda on voting rights, climate change, immigration and other issues.The relief act’s narrow slog through the 50-50 Senate revealed real...

Biden promises enough coronavirus vaccine for ‘every adult in America’ by the end of May

ADPresident Biden, facing mounting pressure on various fronts to gain control of the coronavirus pandemic, placed even more of his administration’s hopes in a “stepped-up” vaccine process, promising Tuesday that there will be enough coronavirus vaccine doses for “every adult in America” by the end of May — a two-month acceleration of his previous projection of July.Biden said pharmaceutical giant Merck will help make vaccine, adding that at the administration’s urging, Johnson & Johnson’s manufacturing facilities will now “operate 24/7.” In the same remarks, the president also said he would...

For those who quit Trump after riot, critics say it’s too little — and four years too late

For those who quit Trump after riot, critics say it’s too little — and four years too late

ADSarah Matthews, a 25-year-old White House spokeswoman, said she watched the violent images unfolding at the Capitol last Wednesday with horror.Before joining the Trump campaign, and later the White House, she had worked in Congress, and said that “seeing people I know, who were scared for their lives, just shook me to my core.”After President Trump sent out two halfhearted tweets calling on the angry mob he had encouraged to remain peaceful, Matthews walked to the West Wing’s lower press office where, in front of several colleagues, she appeared visibly shaken. Several hours later, Trump...
