Biden delays Pope trip for crisis talks with Democrats at 9am today as The Squad threatens to kill infrastructure bill after he dropped family leave and billionaires’ tax to appease Manchin and Sinema

President Joe Biden has postponed his flight to meet the Pope so that he can stay in Washington DC several hours longer, and try and convince his own party to back his infrastructure bill.

Biden was due to fly to Rome early on Thursday, ahead of his Friday audience at the Vatican.

The president, a lifelong Catholic, has pushed his flight back by several hours to try and secure a deal. He is still expected to meet Pope Francis on Friday, and hold a meeting with Emmanuel Macron, the French president.

World leaders are gathering in Rome for the G20 meeting on the weekend. Biden will then travel to the UK for the UN climate summit in Glasgow on Monday and Tuesday.

His change in plans came after his flagship infrastructure bill appeared to be veering off course.
