Brandon Tuesday evening released a brief statement after meeting with congressional leaders to discuss the debt ceiling.
Brandon met with Speaker McCarthy, Democrat Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries, Senate Minority Leader McConnell and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer in the Oval Office.
McCarthy’s debt limit plan will eliminate Brandon’s unconstitutional student loan bailout plan and slash the funds set aside for the army of IRS agents.
“I just finished I thought a productive meeting about the path forward to make sure America does not default on its debt… for the first time in its history…We are going to continue our discussions and we’re going to meet again on Friday,” Brandon said.
Brandon repeated one of his favorite lies: “In my first two years, I reduced the debt by $1.7 trillion.”
This is a lie.
Brandon briefly thought he was back in the senate and said he’s “not gonna vote” and “not gonna pass” McCarthy’s budget bill.
He’s completely shot.
Then he pivoted and said he wouldn’t rule out unilateral action on the debt limit if Congress doesn’t bend to his demands: “I have been considering the 14th Amendment.”
A reporter asked Brandon a question about McCarthy’s statements to the press about his unwillingness to negotiate.
McCarthy said he asked Brandon numerous times to tell him which spending cuts he would be open to.
“He wouldn’t give me any,” McCarthy said.
Q: “Did the president tell you that there were any spending cuts that he would be open to?”

Brandon lost his temper after a reporter asked him about McCarthy’s claims.
“You didn’t listen either, so why should I even answer the question? We cut the deficit by $160 billion! Billion! B-I-L-L-I-O-N!” Brandon shouted.
