Biden will presumably demand NI is sorted as a precondition, but once that's sorted in it's the US interest to do a deal.
But is not up to Biden, just as it was not up to Trump. Although having both the President and the Speaker on side will make it easier. In the States they say all politics are local, well Nancy Pelosi has a native Irish son-in-law and three Irish grand kids from Co. Wicklow. And she has made it very clear what the requirements are for congress to approve a trade deal.

Part of the problem is that Boris and friends do not understand how the game is played. Irish Americans see the Good Friday as THEIR solution to the Irish problem and no US politician, Republicans or Democrats, will be willing to stick their fingers in that one if they are dependent on Irish American voters.
