There are other items on the President’s travel agenda that may be of immediate concern to people back home. For example, Sullivan pointed out Biden’s intention to “consolidate progress” on establishing a global minimum tax.

“He will laser focus on supply chains and energy prices because he knows these issues are impacting working families here in America.

While the president is abroad, Vice President Kamala Harris and other top Democrats will be in Virginia trying to help former Democratic Gov. Terry McAuliffe return to the governor’s mansion. It’s a contest that will draw Biden to a rally in Arlington, Va. On Tuesday night at one of his last official events before leaving for Europe.
