I just saw it to confirm that we have a divided country … I hope it’s a wake-up call for all of us,” Manchin gesê. “I’m concerned. I’ve been talking about our debt, I’ve been talking about inflation, [en] I’ve been talking about the [ekonomiese] fallout we may have [from the spending bills].”

Democrats should pay more heed to the immediate needs of the American people, soos rising gas prices en infrastruktuur, according to Manchin. “Why don’t we do more drilling and why don’t we do more basically production in the United States? I’m not depending on OPEC. I’m not depending on other countries for energie meer. We know how to do it. We have the technology. We should be relying on ourselves.

Baier asked whether the Demokratiese Party left Manchin, who is generally considered a moderate.
