Washington — President Biden met with Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and Senator Joe Manchin in Delaware on Sunday as Democrats look to broker an agreement on the president's social spending plan, a person familiar with the gathering confirmed to CBS News.

Asked Monday about the discussion with Manchin, the president told reporters that there are "some things to work out but it went well," and said he hopes to have a deal on the sweeping package before he leaves for Europe on Thursday for summits in Rome and Glasgow, Scotland.

In addition to trimming the social spending package, Democrats are also hashing out the details of how to pay for it, as the White House faced resistance from Sinema over its plan to raise the corporate tax rate and top income rate rate for the wealthiest Americans.

The president, however, expressed optimism that Democrats in both chambers could reach an agreement on a framework for the package, one that would garner support from Manchin and Sinema.

"What we're trying to do is reach a point here where I'm able to present to the Senate — they're able to vote on — and the House a serious, serious piece of legislation that changes the dynamic for working-class folks in America and middle-class folks, and begins to have the very wealthy and corporations just begin to pay their fair share," he said Thursday.

A deal on the details of the package would pave the way for the House to vote on a $1 trillion bipartisan infrastructure bill, which has already cleared the Senate, before the president leaves Washington, delivering him a key legislative win before he meets with world leaders.

The "plan," she said, is for the House to vote on the physical infrastructure bill in the next week and Democrats to agree to a framework on the broader package
