Manchin renews talks on Build Back Better package

Democratic Senator Joe Manchin has restarted talks with party colleague Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer on Joe Biden's Build Back Better climate and energy package, according to a report published by Axios on Friday.

The website said Manchin warned that the "respectful and encouraging" talks could still fail to deliver results. "There could be nothing. There could be truly nothing. That's all I can tell you," he added, confirming he hasn't held talks with President Biden yet.

As Manchin's and Schumer's staff continue preparations for the potential package, the United States is set to hold midterm elections in November, with Biden's approval ratings stuck at around 40%.
