At the infrastructure meeting Biden talks about “American competitiveness"

Here's the pool report on the infrastructure meeting with President Biden.

Pool was led into the Oval Office at 2:18 p.m. POTUS sat in one chair with the VP in a chair to his right, the transportation secretary to his left and members spaced out in front of them.

POTUS spoke briefly saying they were there to talk about “American competitiveness" and "what we’re going to do to make sure we once again lead the world across the board on infrastructure.”

Pool asked if he had reached out to Republicans on the COVID bill.

“I’ve been talking to a lot of my Republican friends in the House and the Senate and continue to do that," he said.

Last question from pool was "Are you comfortable with having to limit the direct payments?"

“Yes," POTUS replied.

Pool was ushered out at 2:20 p.m.
