Biden’s weekend trip includes budget talks with top Dem senators, granddaughter’s field hockey game


President Joe Biden flew out of  Delaware on Monday morning for neighboring New Jersey.

Biden’s weekend trip included a meeting at his Greenville area home with Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Senate Majority Leaders Chuck Schumer regarding a budget agreement. No agreement came out of the session.

Flight restrictions are in place in a portion of Delaware and adjacent areas into Monday.

Biden was scheduled to make stops in the Garden State aimed at promoting the administration’s Build Back Better plan. He will return to the White House in the afternoon.

On Saturday, Biden traveled to St. Andrew’s School near Middletown to watch his granddaughter play in a field hockey game. He later attended services at St. Joseph on the Brandywine.

Last week, Biden held a town hall with CNN in Baltimore that gained headlines when he said the U.S. would come to the defense of Taiwan in a China invasion. The White House later tried to clarify the comments. The official U.S. policy is to remain mum on whether it would come to the island’s defense.

Earlier in the week, Biden paid a visit to Scranton, PA to promote his infrastructure plan.
