Biden said about his decision in Milwaukee at the town hall address organized by CNN. An audience there asked him if he commits to eliminate a minimum of $50,000 student loan debt.
The US President can not list off their significant amount of debt without any discussion with Congress. He knows the pressure which the debt put on the student and the family as his kids also studied in privately funded universities.

Chuck Schumer, the Senate Majority Leader, D-N.Y., senator of D-Mass Elizabeth Warren, and other policymakers came up with a proposal in February. They called out to the President to eliminate at least $50,000 student debt. Those Democrats had argued that the education secretary holds power to wave-off federal student debt if he agrees to do so.
Biden welcomes any option to review the loan wave off the bill if Congress agrees

They put a lot of pressure on President Biden with this gesture. The senators said that the oval office has such posts to wave off the loan burden from millions of students across the US.
