McConnell complains Biden hasn’t spoken to him or invited him to White House since inauguration

Mitch McConnell complained during an interview on Wednesday that Joe Biden has not spoken with him since the presidential inauguration.

In an appearance on Fox News, the Senate minority leader said he had not been invited to the White House so far during this administration, claiming that Democrats are not interested in acting in a bipartisan fashion.

Host Bill Hemmer asked when he had last spoken with the president, to which Mr McConnell replied: “I don’t believe I have spoken with him since he was sworn in. We had a couple of conversations before that.”

Mr McConnell’s office clarified that the president and minority leader have spoken regarding the situation in Myanmar since the inauguration, but that the context of the comments remains regarding reaching bipartisan consensus on the economic agenda for the country.

When Mr Hemmer noted that 10 Republicans were invited to the White House in early February, Mr McConnell said that Democrats “are not interested in doing anything on a bipartisan basis in the political centre,” adding: “They’d be more than happy to pick off a few of our members and do what they would like to do.”
