White House Considers Potential Biden Trip to Europe to Show Support for Ukraine

The White House is considering a potential presidential trip to Europe in the coming weeks to show support for Ukraine amid the Russian aggression, according to administration officials.

The trip would focus on Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and would aim to reassure American allies in the region, NBC News reported, citing anonymous sources.

One possible stop for United States President Joe Biden would be Brussels, where the headquarters of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization and the European Union are located, according to a U.S. official.

Officials said they did not know the precise timing of the possible trip.

The trip has not been confirmed and may not happen, the officials cautioned.

If the trip pushes through, it would follow U.S. Vice President Kamala Harris’ visit to Poland and Romania last week.

Some staff who worked on Harris’ travel stayed behind in Europe to help arrange for a potential Biden trip, NBC News reported, citing administration officials.

Biden has only made two international trips since he took office as a precaution largely due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
