White House holds press briefing: Watch live

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre is slated to hold a press briefing Thursday afternoon.

The briefing comes as the Senate’s $118 billion border measure, which had been bundled with U.S. assistance for Israel and Ukraine, fell short of the 60 votes needed to move forward Wednesday. President Biden and fellow Democrats say their message to voters until Election Day will be that Republicans blocked the toughest bipartisan border legislation in decades because Trump “and his MAGA friends” prefer to use immigration as a political weapon.

The Senate is expected to vote Thursday afternoon on another version of the national security supplemental, which strips the border security deal out of the legislation.

The briefing is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. EST.
