BREAKING: WH Delays Talks Scheduled for Friday on Debt Ceiling Deal

The White House has delayed talks between congressional leaders and President Joe Biden that were scheduled to resume Friday, according to the Hill.

The Hill:

The White House has postponed a meeting on debt ceiling negotiations between President Biden and congressional leaders that was scheduled for Friday to allow staff-level talks to continue.

“Staff will continue working and all the principals agreed to meet early next week,” a White House official said. A House GOP source also confirmed the postponement but gave no further details.

The White House viewed the delay as a positive development, the White House source said, adding staff meetings were going well and it was not yet time for the principal leaders to come back together.


Thursday’s revelation of the postponement by the White House and the House GOP comes after a meeting on Tuesday with the lawmakers and Biden, as we reported, that yielded “no movement” on the issue. But on Wednesday, remarks by Biden seems to break the previous stalemate on an issue the White House had insisted was non-negotiable—there would be absolutely no budget cuts tied to the raising of the debt ceiling.
