Good Morning DC! President Biden is on his way to the UK. This morning at 8:07 am, President emerged from the motorcade at the Ellipse and immediately headed to board Air Force One. He was wearing a dark pantsuit and was accompanied by First Lady Jill Biden.

On the goal of his first foreign trip, Biden said this morning that it was about showing China and Russia that the alliance is strong. On cyber, he said “that will be a subject of discussion” with Putin. 

Biden also mentioned that while abroad, he would be announcing a vaccine strategy for the world. 

CNN shouted to no avail a question on whether the President could still get a bipartisan deal on infrastructure.

Yesterday, President Biden rejected the Republican’s counteroffer in a meeting with Senator Capito. He was nothing short of "disappointed" with the Republican counteroffer given that he was willing to reduce the plan by over $1 trillion, and for Senate Republicans to increase their plan by over $150 billion. 

In meetings with Senators Sinema, Cassidy, and Manchin, he urged them to continue working with Democrats and Republicans to create a bipartisan proposal. Biden will be in contact with members of the group by phone while in Europe and he spoke with Speaker Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Schumer to ensure the American Jobs Plan moves forward. 

“The President is committed to moving his economic legislation through Congress this summer and is pursuing multiple paths to get this done,” said Psaki. 

Across the pond, BBC has received a legal warning from Harry and Meghan regarding the story they published about the Queen not been consulted about the use of the name Lilibet for the couple's newborn daughter. 

“The article is false and defamatory and the allegations within it should not be repeated,” Sussexes said in a statement. 

And that's a wrap for this Wednesday morning, June 9, 2021.Thanks for waking up with me. All updates about Biden's foreign trip you can follow via coverage at www.thepavlovictoday.com. Good Morning DC will be back tomorrow to bring you the latest first.
