President Biden suggested Sunday morning that he needs more time regarding ongoing Trump-era steel and aluminum tariffs.
Pressed by a reporter on how European allies are concerned about the sanctions and his justification for keeping them in place, Biden said, “120 days. Give me a break. I need time,” referring to his first few months in office.
It was the last question Biden took before ending his news conference, leaving the room after. All told, the news conference lasted about 30 minutes.
