President Joe Biden is frustrated that Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, D-Ariz., is refusing to budge in negotiations on his Build Back Better plan and won't even returning his calls, according to CNN.

Biden has complained to lawmakers that the two senators "don't move" from their positions and has even "contended that Sinema didn't always return calls from the White House," sources told CNN's Manu Raju.

Sinema and her aides have repeatedly said that she would not negotiate publicly.

Democratic leaders are also rankled that she doesn't appear to be negotiating much in private either.

"Sen. Sinema's position is that she doesn't quote-unquote negotiate publicly," Sanders said during a news conference.

McConnell called Sinema and Manchin to discuss the deal even before informing members of his own party, according to Politico.

Democrats, including Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, only learned of the deal McConnell floated to Sinema and Manchin through a press release. »

Only, as Trump may or may not know, he’s no longer president, and therefore he has no executive privilege to assert.

At a White House briefing, press secretary Jen Psaki said the Biden decision reflected the gravity of the attack.
