White House Rebuffs Johnson's Demand for Meeting [View all]

White House Rebuffs Johnson’s Demand for Meeting

February 14, 2024 at 3:49 pm EST By Taegan Goddard 33 Comments



“The White House dismissed Speaker Mike Johnson’s demand for direct talks with President Joe Biden to resolve an impasse over border security and Ukraine aid,” Bloomberg reports.

“Johnson insisted on personal negotiations with the president before he would allow a House vote on $95 billion bill in aid to Ukraine, Israel and Taiwan. The White House countered that Johnson’s position on immigration and foreign aid has repeatedly shifted, and thus a meeting with the president would be unproductive.”
