While it’s difficult to predict a Vice President’s schedule, we can see that his busiest days are usually weekends. And his overseas trips have been relatively short, averaging only 28 events per trip. Biden has also recently met with Pope Francis and visited Green River College. Below, we’ve looked at his most-recent schedule. The analysis also reveals the changes in the subject matter of his events. Over time, the vice president’s events have been categorized based on keywords found in the text.
Biden’s busiest days tend to be on weekends
During his two terms in the White House, Joe Biden has spent about one-third of his time out of town. While he’s a Washingtonian full time, Biden has managed to spend at least six weekends outside of the Beltway. The latest example was this past weekend in Delaware, where he spent time with his son Hunter and daughter-in-law Melissa Cohen. His grandson Beau also joined him.
In fact, it has become increasingly difficult to move Biden around the White House. The logistics of moving him around are complex, requiring military precision and coordination with law enforcement. Meanwhile, tensions between White House staff and his logistical team are building. The president often feels the urge to escape campus for a day or two. It’s easy to see why he’d want to get out and play.
His overseas trips have included only 28 total events
Vice President Joe Biden is off to Europe on his first foreign trip. He is setting an ambitious agenda for his visit: Reinvigorating the Atlantic alliance, strengthening relationships with European allies, and rallying the world’s democracies against authoritarianism. While these goals are worthy and necessary, they might not be best served by a frenzy of summitry and soaring rhetoric.
Taiwan is one of Biden’s most important strategic partners. The two countries share an economic relationship that is centered on the semiconductor industry, and the U.S. is the world’s largest semiconductor manufacturer. Since his February collapse, China has focused attention on the U.S.’s role in Taiwan’s supply chain. Japan is actively encouraging Taiwan to join the CPTPP. The two countries have developed a burgeoning economic relationship.
He meets with Pope Francis
While there are no details yet on the meeting between the two presidents, many media outlets are expected to offer live coverage of Biden greeting Pope Francis and their meeting in the library. Pope Francis is deeply concerned about the U.S. Catholic Church becoming sectarian and losing its catholicity. The White House stressed that the meeting would be personal, not business-related. However, it is unclear whether the meeting will lead to an official statement.
In his speech, Biden praised Pope Francis’ efforts to fight the climate crisis and to end the pandemic through vaccine sharing. While the two men disagree on the moral responsibility of human life, they praised each other’s leadership on those issues. Biden also praised the church’s teachings on abortion and migration, both of which he has long supported. The two men also exchanged gifts, including a ceramic tile of a pilgrim.
He visits Green River College
As President Obama prepares to visit the state of Washington, Vice President Joe Biden is taking aim at Republicans. In a speech at Green River College in Auburn, Washington, the Vice President discussed his recent actions to reduce costs and give American families breathing room. He called on Congress to pass his plan, which includes capping insulin at $35 a month. He also discussed the rising cost of child care. Many of his constituents are Democrats who hope Biden will visit their state.
In an address on Friday, Vice President Joe Biden will discuss issues ranging from rising health care and prescription drug costs to the importance of career and technical education. The Vice President is expected to discuss initiatives to combat climate change, limit price increases for middle-class families and lower prescription drug costs. Despite the expected turnout, Washington State Patrol officials warned that there will be intermittent heavy traffic in Seattle and that the freeways could be temporarily closed.
He signs Los Angeles Declaration on Migration
Vice President Joe Biden will sign the Los Angeles Declaration on Migration today to end a crisis of illegal immigration. It is a regional collaboration designed to address the root causes of historic migration flows across the Americas, including human trafficking and forced migration. It asks nations along the migration routes to strengthen asylum processing and enforce their borders. It also calls on the United States to work with these countries to help them address the challenges of migration and refugees.
As part of the agreement, Latin American countries will work to increase economic prosperity and improve their legal status. Biden’s economic partnership will help them improve their governance and protect their citizens. The United States and the region have pledged to work together to fight transnational criminal organizations, the drug and arms trade, and the exploitation of the poor. He hopes these initiatives will improve regional stability and create opportunities for safe migration, which in turn can spur sustainable growth.
He meets with COVID-19 team
Vice President Joe Biden will meet with members of the COVID-19 response team on Tuesday in Philadelphia. He will discuss how the United States will respond to the rapidly spreading COVID virus. The news conference will follow an announcement by the administration that it will double the number of pills it orders for the COVID virus. This action is important because it will allow the U.S. to respond to the virus more quickly, thereby decreasing its potential impact on the population.
In addition to the increased number of beds available for patients affected by the disease, the government will send ambulances and EMS workers to hot spots, as well as people who will open hospital beds. Additionally, the Defense Department is mobilizing 1,000 medical personnel to be deployed to hospitals in the affected areas by January or February. Then, as the situation evolves, Congress will need to make sure that these resources are accompanied by conditions that protect workers and jobs.
