Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) said on March 24 that he has not spoken to President Biden since Inauguration Day.
“I don’t believe I’ve spoken with him since he was sworn in,” McConnell said in an interview on Fox News.
However, spokespeople from McConnell’s office clarified that the senator and Biden have spoken, just not about Biden’s agenda.
McConnell told reporters last month that Biden spoke to him about Myanmar, the budget process and coronavirus relief.
“Well the president called me on two things: Burma was one of them, the other was … the budget process and COVID relief,” McConnell told Fox News.
McConnell also noted in his interview with Fox News about his belief in Biden not acting bipartisan.
“I haven’t been invited to the White House, so far this administration is not interested in doing anything on a bipartisan basis in the political center…There’s been no efforts whatsoever by the president or the administration to do anything in the political center. It’s been trying to jam through everything on the hard left,” McConnell said.
