White House Press Sec Claims Biden Has Always Been Willing To Negotiate On Debt Ceiling



Karine Jean-Pierre

During a new press briefing, White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre claimed that Democrat President Joe Biden has “said from the beginning that he would negotiate with Republicans on a budget just like it has been done every year.”

However, Biden has notoriously refused to engage in negotiations about the federal budget until just days before the government was set to default. Jean-Pierre herself even spent months promising that Biden would not negotiate on the issue. 

According to the Daily Wire, a series of clips from RNC Research showed Jean-Pierre saying: 

  • February 2, 2023: “We don’t see any negotiation here. We don’t see anything that needs to be discussed.”
  • February 10, 2023: “It’s pretty simple and it’s pretty straightforward, we believe that Congress has a constitutional duty to get this done.”
  • February 16, 2023: “The president’s stance on negotiations stands, right, which is that he does not believe as it relates to the debt ceiling, that we should be negotiating.”
  • March 2, 2023: “We’ve been very clear: we’re not going to negotiate on the debt ceiling.”
  • March 6, 2023: “We never came to the table to negotiate on the debt ceiling. That was not something that occurred, that is not something that’s happening, we’ve been very clear we’re not negotiating around the debt ceiling.”
  • March 29, 2023: “When you think about the debt limit, it is not negotiable.”
