With ten days since the start of Biden’s presidency, it’s more than clear that he cares nothing about bipartisanship, despite his inaugural address. Over the past almost two weeks, the 46th president has had one opportunity after the other to make good on his promises of working across the aisle and he refuses.

Instead, Biden shut down thousands of blue-collar jobs by ending the construction permit for Keystone XL pipeline. The 46th president has also chosen to govern via executive action; this has gotten to be so serious that six state attorney generals are threatening to bring a lawsuit against Biden if he doesn’t lay off the executive orders.

In yet another blow to bipartisanship, the Biden White House recently turned down an opportunity to meet with Republican senators, Newsmax confirms.

The Rejection of Bipartisanship and Unity

Multiple GOP senators sought a meeting with the 46th president this week. The meeting request arrived in response to Biden’s shutdown of Keystone pipeline, restrictions on gas and oil leases, and promised limits on automobile greenhouse gas emissions.

Republicans aren’t on board with the aforementioned policies at all; however, in Biden agreeing to this meeting, he would be putting some action behind his words about unity and bipartisanship. Instead, though, the 46th president turned down the opportunity, presumably to continue passing one executive order after the other.

Biden’s rejection of the meeting demonstrates his clear interest in pleasing radical leftists, rather than healing America’s political divides.

A Statement from the Biden White House

As per usual, the Biden White House sent out press secretary Jen Psaki to clean up its mess.

While addressing reporters, Psaki stated that there is no planned meeting between the 46th president and GOP senators. Many of these senators are also from oil states, hence their constituents are negatively impacted by Biden’s policies.

The Republican senators sent a letter to Biden vocalizing their concerns. In this letter, the GOP members explain that the 46th president’s executive orders have thus far broken his inaugural promises to create good-paying employment opportunities for energy workers.

Even certain Democrats in states that rely upon oil drilling have expressed some worries about Biden’s impact on the energy sectors.
