The Facts

▪ On June 9th, Biden addressed the people at the British Royal Air Force station in Mildenhall as a part of his first overseas trip as President.

▪ Biden stated, “This is my first overseas trip as President of the United States. I’m heading to the G7, then to the NATO Ministerial, and then to meet with Mr. Putin to let him know what I want him to know.”

▪ Biden said, “With the European Union leaders, I’ll discuss how the United States can work with Europe to address the full range of issues that require the full strength of our transatlantic partnership, including working together to shape the new rules for the 21st-century economies.”

▪ On June 10th, Biden will meet with PM Johnson in Cornwall to discuss a new Atlantic Charter modeled on declarations by Roosevelt and Churchill in 1941 regarding the post-world-war order.

▪ PM Johnson stated, “While Churchill and Roosevelt faced the question of how to help the world recover following a devastating war, today we have to reckon with a very different but no less intimidating challenge – how to build back better from the coronavirus pandemic.”

▪ Johnson continued, “And as we do so, cooperation between the UK and US, the closest of partners and the greatest of allies, will be crucial for the future of the world’s stability and prosperity.”

▪ The President will later meet Vladimir Putin in Geneva – in his speech, Biden stated, “We’re not seeking conflict with Russia… But I’ve been clear: The United States will respond in a robust and meaningful way when the Russian government engages in harmful activities.”
