On Thursday, Biden finally weighed in on impeachment. He noted that Americans across the nation would have to “move on” from impeachment, while Democrats are still pursuing impeachment against Trump.
Biden was also asked if he had any commentary regarding the videos that portrayed the riots at Capitol Hill in greater depth, which were played as part of the hearings on Wednesday.
To the reporters, Biden replied he is “focused on his job” as well as “the promises [he] made”, adding that today’s agenda is centered on “infrastructure and jobs.”
He also indicated he did not see the live videos as he was working late into the night, though he observed some media coverage of the impeachment trial.
Biden noted that the Senate does have “a very important job to be complete,” adding that “some minds may be changed,” though he remains uncertain about minds changing at this point.
Biden met with Senators Ben Cardin (D-MD), Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV), Jim Inhofe (R-OK), and Tom Carper (D-DE) on Thursday in order to discuss infrastructure packages for the future.
Biden also stressed that the additional investment in infrastructure is critical for propelling the United States forward from the COVID pandemic, and he also warned that China remains focused on beating the United States.
According to Biden, “if we don’t get moving, they’re going to eat our lunch.”
