Manchin ‘Rejected’ 1 frantic phone call right before he killed Biden’s Bill on live TV

Democratic Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia declined to take a call from the White House about his decision on President Joe Biden’s Build Back Better Act, according to a new report.

Manchin made the announcement “Fox News Sunday.” Before going on air, he had an aide tell the White House that he would tell the nation that he would not vote for a Biden spending fund of any kind, size or shape, Politico reported.

Then there was the panic, according to Politico.

“We tried to get rid of him,” the newspaper quoted what it described as “a senior White House official.”

Manchin “refused to take calls from White House staff,” the official said, Politico quoted the official as saying.

Once on camera, Manchin spread his news on host Brett Baier’s rights after talking about inflation, debt and COVID-19.

“So when you have these things coming to you the way they are now, I’ve always said this, Bret: If I can’t go home and explain it to the people of West Virginia, I can’t vote. for it. ,” Manchin said. “And I cannot vote to continue with this piece of legislation. I can not. I have tried everything humanly possible. I can’t get there.”

Baier, somewhat surprised by what was going on, had to be sure.

“Are you done? This is – is this not?”

“This is no, about this law,” Manchin said. “I’ve tried everything I know to do.”

The White House boils.

Press secretary Jen Psaki released a statement accusing Manchin of violating his word.

Psaki announced that on Tuesday, “Senator Manchin went to the White House and presented directly to the President – ​​a written outline for the Build Better Back bill that is about the same size and scope as the framework. of the President and covers many of the same priorities. “

“While that framework lacks key priorities, we believe it can lead to a compromise that is acceptable to all. Senator Manchin promised to continue the conversations in the coming days and work with us to reach that common ground,” the statement said.

“If his comments on Fox and the written statement indicate the end of that effort, they represent an abrupt and inexplicable reversal of his position, and violate his commitment to the President and fellow Senators in the House and Senate.”

A “senior White House official” quoted by Politico said a deal was still possible.

“Look, with Manchin, you never know,” Politico quoted as saying it was a senior White House official. “I’ve never seen anything like this… The guy shook hands with the president. He made us a written offer on Tuesday that was flawed but doable. If he walked away that quickly, maybe he could flip back.”

Will this big spending bill come back next year?

But Politico noted that following Manchin’s explosive statement on Sunday, “the relationship between the White House and Manchin has become deeply strained” and in that statement “[e]Apparently, Psaki is calling Manchin a liar. “

Politico said someone it called a “senior Democrat aide” made the comment after the statement was made critical. Manchin:

“Anyone in the White House who thinks it’s a good idea to be burned needs to be fired… He’s the president. He must be an adult,” the aide said.
