Former President Donald Trump said Saturday that it's an "easy question" whether he'll run for office in 2024 while talking to firefighters and police officers in New York City on the 20th anniversary of 9/11.

The big picture: Trump skipped the day's official events in lieu of his campaign-style appearance with first responders. He is also scheduled to provide commentary for a pay-per-view boxing match Saturday night in Florida.

President Biden ramped up the pressure on his fellow Democrats Wednesday, calling a series of lawmakers to the White House in the hope of ending infighting and getting them in line.

Why it matters: Divisions within the party are threatening to derail Biden's top priorities. After several weeks of letting negotiations play out, the president is finally asserting his power to ensure his own party doesn't block his agenda.

House Democrats discussed with President Biden on Wednesday a plan to exempt billions of dollars of new climate spending from his requirement that his $3.5 trillion "soft" infrastructure plan be offset with additional revenue.

Why it matters: The accounting proposal — a version of "dynamic scoring" — would dramatically lower the amount of taxes Democrats would need to raise while creating wiggle room to increase the ultimate size of the package.
