Biden says he won't pull Tanden's OMB nomination

United States President Joe Biden said that he will not pull the nomination of Neera Tanden for the head of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB).

Speaking to the White House press pool, Biden noted that he thinks there will be enough votes in the Senate to confirm Tanden.

Earlier, Democratic Senator from West Virginia Joe Manchin said he would vote against her confirmation, causing doubts over whether Tanden's nomination can pass since the White House would need backing from at least one Republican senator for her confirmation.
