Joe Biden slaps down two demands from left-wing of his party saying he WON'T write off $50,000 in student debts and says he would compromise on timing of $15 minimum wage

President Joe Biden said Tuesday that he wouldn't write off $50,000 in student loan debt, as progressives have asked for, and was willing to gradually bump up the minimum wage to $15.

Biden participated in a CNN town hall in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, where he wiggled away from the left of his party, knocking down attendee Joycelyn Fish's ask that he work to get $50,000 wiped from each American student's loan bill.

'I will not make that happen,' the president said.
