This past week marked the first time Biden went overseas as President, and he definitely is making the most of his trip. As of today, he has met with leaders from Britain, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, and Japan, and is expected to meet Putin in a private meeting. In the G7 summit, leaders discussed how to address the economic implications of China and how to assist countries struggling with the long term effects of the pandemic. Biden also met Queen Elizabeth on Sunday, becoming the thirteenth U.S. President to do so.
Meanwhile, Vice President Kamala Harris began her trip abroad to Guatemala and met with officials to discuss potential solutions to the immigration crisis in America. Critics assert that she should “come to the Southern border [of the U.S.]” instead of visiting countries in Central America to better understand the effects of mass immigration on southern ranchers and business owners. Harris dismissed those concerns, stating that a visit to the U.S. Mexico Border would serve as a “mere grand gesture.”
On a side note, I am reading a novel titled ”Liberty and Equality: The American Conversation” by S. Adam Seagrave. If you are interested in political science and philosophy, then I would suggest looking into it… the novel is intellectually challenging and educates the reader on the foundations of politics in America.
