On Thursday, Democratic Congressman Henry Cuellar underscored the necessity of POTUS and the vice president to visit the US southern border amid an ever-increasing surge in migrant arrivals. Neither one has been there since assuming office in January.
Next week will see the first foreign trips by President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris, more than four months after the two entered the White House in their current capacity.
To be more exact, Harris will kick off her tour already this Sunday when she will travel to Guatemala to sit down with President Alejandro Giammattei and other leaders to discuss the “root causes” of migration.
After the Guatemala negotiations, the US vice president is due to visit Mexico on 8 June, for similar talks with President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador and his advisers before returning to Washington in the evening of that day.
President Biden, for his part, will attend the 11-13 June G7 economic summit in Cornwall, England, in what will be followed by his and First Lady Jill Biden’s meeting with Queen Elizabeth II at Windsor Castle.
POTUS will also visit Belgium for a NATO summit and will then hold talks with his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan. On top of that, Biden’s foreign tour includes a 16 June face-to-face meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Geneva.
