President Joe Biden held a “productive” meeting for nearly two hours on Wednesday with Republican and Democratic leaders in Congress to identify areas in which they could cooperate, especially on infrastructure, the White House said.
“He expressed gratitude for the important priorities that the parties have been able to work together on so far, and that he wants to work hard to develop them,” the White House said in a statement after the meeting.
“The President also stressed that no matter what disagreements exist between the parties, the real competition is between the United States and the rest of the world,” the statement said.
