House GOP Leader McCarthy Hasn’t Spoken to Biden Since Election

President Biden has phoned Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and hosted top GOP House and Senate committee leaders and rank-and-file Republicans at the White House.

But there’s one key Republican Biden hasn’t reached out to in the 86 days since he’s been president: House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.). And it’s beginning to get under the skin of the usually affable California Republican.

“Just as I’ve sat down with President Trump, I’d like to sit down with President Biden. I’ve actually requested meetings on the border crisis. Never had a meeting, never spoken to President Biden since he’s been elected. I’ve spoken to him many times when he was vice president,” McCarthy volunteered to reporters in the Capitol on Thursday.

“I know [Biden] speaks of bipartisanship. I’d like to talk to him about infrastructure. I’d like to talk to him about the border crisis, since he nor his vice president who he’s put in charge of the border have gone to the border,” McCarthy continued. “I’ve been there. I’d like to discuss what we saw, what we heard from the border agents themselves, to tell him some ideas … but unfortunately I don’t think President Biden believes in bipartisanship.”
