WATCH: Biden says he can’t guarantee that the U.S. will not reach the debt ceiling, says “That’s up to Mitch McConnell”

Monday, President Biden was asked by a reporter “Can you guarantee that the U.S. will not reach the debt ceiling? That, that will not happen?”

“No I can’t,” Biden replied, “that’s up to Mitch McConnell.”

“A failure to raise the debt limit will call into question Congress’ willingness to meet our obligations that we’ve already incurred, not new ones,” Biden added.
