Manchin deals death blow to Biden’s climate aspirations

Good morning, US politics blog readers. After a year of negotiations, Democrats’ aspirations to pass major climate change aspirations died at the hands of one of their own: Senator Joe Manchin, who told party leaders yesterday he would not support any such legislation, nor the tax increases to pay for it. The United States is the world’s second-largest emitter of greenhouse gasses, and the failure to address that will impact not just Americans, but the entire world.

Here’s what else is happening today:

  • President Joe Biden is finishing up his visit to Israel and flying to Saudi Arabia, where the White House says he will meet with Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman despite controversy over the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.
  • The Democratic-led House of Representatives will consider a bill to codify abortion rights into law, and ensure people can travel across state lines to access the procedure.
  • Former president Donald Trump, along with son Donald Jr and daughter Ivanka, appear for testimony in a civil suit brought by the New York attorney general, Letitia James, against their business.
