Joe Biden touted his Build Back Better agenda on the international stage while domestically the reconciliation bill struggles to gain support. During a press conference to wrap up the G20 summit in Rome on Sunday, he presented his spending plan as a guideline for other countries to follow.

“I found in all of my meetings here, in both the larger sessions and the one on one sessions, I had many of those, a real eagerness among our partners and allies for American leadership to help bring the world together and solve some of these big problems,” he stated.

Today, I’m in Glasgow to kick off COP26. Climate change is the challenge of our collective lifetimes — the existential threat to human existence as we know it. And every day we delay, the cost of inaction increases.

Let this be the moment that we answer history’s call.

Biden expressed optimism the agenda would pass despite the legislation seeing opposition from Democrat moderates and progressives over several different issues.

“I believe we will pass my Build Back Better plan and I believe we will pass the infrastructure bill,” he continued. “Combined, they have $900 billion in climate resistance and dealing with climate and resilience, and it’s the largest investment in the history of the world that has occurred. And, it is going to pass, in my view, but we will see, we’ll see.”

House Democrats are eyeing a vote on both the reconciliation package and the infrastructure bill sometime this week.
