On Tuesday afternoon, President Biden claimed that West Virginia senator Joe Manchin privately admitted to misleading his Democratic colleagues about his position on the multi-trillion-dollar “Build Back Better” bill.
“I’m told [Manchin] was speaking to the liberal caucus in the House and said, ‘Joe Biden didn’t mislead you, I misled you,’” Biden told the White House press corps following a speech about COVID.
BIDEN: “…and Joe (Manchin) went on TV today, uh, (I don’t know) whether it’s TV or not, I’m told he was speaking to the Liberal Caucus in the House and said, ‘Joe Biden didn’t mislead you, I misled you.'” pic.twitter.com/O21nnLsvE2

Such an admission by Manchin would be squarely at odds with Manchin’s statements on Sunday, citing chapter and verse how the “Build Back Better” bill violated his longstanding conditions that the bill would need to meet in order to win his vote.
Manchin’s office did not immediately reply to a request for comment from National Review.
