First lady Jill Biden says her husband has been preparing for weeks for his first foreign trip, including his high-stakes meeting next week with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
"He’s so well prepared," Dr. Biden told reporters in Carbis Bay, Cornwall, as her husband was sitting down to his first meeting with British Prime Minister Boris Johnson.
"He’s been studying for weeks working up for today," she said. "He knows most of the leaders that will be here. Joe loves foreign policy. This is his forte."
Asked specifically about whether he'd prepared to meet with Putin, she exclaimed: "He’s overprepared!"
She said the trip was off to a "beautiful beginning," and said she and the President were looking forward to meeting Queen Elizabeth II on Sunday.
Asked to explain her jacket, which had the word "love" printed on the back, Dr. Biden said, "I think we’re bringing love from America."
"We’re trying to bring unity across the globe," she said, adding she hoped people "feel a sense of hope after this year of the pandemic."
