President Joe Biden won’t be jetting off to Chicago Wednesday as originally planned.
The President will stay in Washington to focus on negotiations over budget reconciliation and the so-called ‘bipartisan infrastructure deal.’
“In meetings and calls over the weekend and through today, President Biden has been engaging with members of Congress on the path forward for the Build Back Better Act and the Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal,” a White House official said. “He will now remain at the White House tomorrow to continue working on advancing these two pieces of legislation to create jobs, grow the economy, and make investments in families, rather than failed giveaways to the rich and big corporations.”
An unnamed White House source told CNN, “There is a strong feeling that progress is being made. Our big gun is staying here.”
The President will reschedule the Chicago trip, where he planned to highlight the need for more Americans to get vaccinated against COVID-19.
