"I believe we can do it". "Nobody ever asked him about this big plan that he has got, this big idea to completely transform the economy, to make it all green".

"Since it was passed, a majority. of economic forecasters have significantly increased their projections on the economic growth that's going to take place this year".

The administration has not yet made it clear how much they expect these initiatives will cost, though it has said it expects part of the revenue will be derived from tax increases.

The announcement raised some eyebrows, given pundit speculation about the prospect of Biden - already, at 78, the oldest USA president ever to serve - leaving office after one term.

Simultaneously, he said his administration was trying to establish a new system for people to register for asylum, though he did not provide specifics or an exact timeline for when those changes would take effect.

Biden also said he has known Chinese President Xi Jinping "a long time" and spent "hours" with Xi as vice president.

"I said that is my expectation", Biden said, interjecting.

Biden was also pressed about committing to the withdrawal of United States troops from Afghanistan by May 1 and said it was going to be "hard" to meet the deadline in terms of "tactical reasons". "Sometimes states are the leaders, as we know", she said.

Former President Donald Trump, for example, announced his plans to seek reelection on his first day in office. "We will leave, the question is when we will leave", adding that he can't "picture it will be the case" that U.S. troops will be in Afghanistan in 2022. She's a great partner.

He said he was prepared for "some form of diplomacy" with North Korea "but it has to be conditioned upon the end result of denuclearization". But he said it would be hard to withdraw all US forces there by the May 1 deadline.

When he did speak on the topic, he blamed Trump for cutting aid to Central American countries that could have address the root causes of humanitarian crisis. The new White House team has carefully managed the president's appearances, which serves Biden's purposes but denies the media opportunities to directly press him on major policy issues and to engage in the kind of back-and-forth that can draw out information and thoughts that go beyond curated talking points.

"The only people we are not going to let sit there without help are children", he said.

"I am not gonna do it", he said.

A main focus for the president on Thursday was understandably immigration, as migrants continue to flood the country's southern border and capacity is stretched at facilities meant to house unaccompanied children.

And, he called a Republican Party effort to change USA voting laws as "un-American" and "sick".

Mr Biden also confirmed his intention to run for a second term as president with current Vice-President Kamala Harris as his running mate. I want to get them done consistent with what we promised the American people, " said Biden.

The press conference came as Mr. Biden's administration deals with a surge of migrants crossing the southern border and after mass shootings in Georgia and Colorado that have revived a debate about gun restrictions.
