Biden, Republicans COVID-19 meeting to exchange ideas -White House

February 1, 2021

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – President Joe Biden’s meeting with a group of centrist Republican senators to discuss COVID-19 federal aid later on Monday will be a “good faith” meeting to exchange ideas but the Democratic president will not be making or accepting any particular offers.

White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki told reporters at a briefing that Biden is open to making the legislation stronger but that he believes it should be closer to his $1.9 trillion proposal.
