Biden struck a confident note on his $1 trillion bipartisan infrastructure deal and a separate, social spending plan expected to cost under $2 trillion during a CNN town hall event in Baltimore.
When asked on CNN whether Democrats were close to a deal, Biden said: "I think so."
On Thursday Biden said corporate tax rates are unlikely to be hiked in a spending bill.
Instead, he said a separate minimum corporate tax proposal could fund the social programs.
