In Washington, Biden and Starmer talk football and NATO resistance

US President Joe Biden and British Prime Minister Keir Starmer spoke extensively about England’s Euro 2024 semi-final victory ahead of their bilateral meeting at the White House on Wednesday (10).

“I heard, by the way,” Biden said, pausing briefly. The reporter interjected and said, “That’s good news.”

“Good news, it’s true, and I’ll tell you, it’s all because of the prime minister,” Biden joked, drawing laughter.

“We haven’t lost a game under Labour,” Starmer added, before Biden turned the conversation back to the meeting.

In remarks to the press, which lasted about three minutes, Biden said he felt NATO leaders had a “very good meeting” and that the alliance was moving in the “right direction.”

Starmer congratulated Biden on the summit’s success, and both leaders spoke about Biden awarding the Presidential Medal of Freedom to NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg at the summit’s opening on Tuesday (9).

The British Prime Minister described NATO as a “special relationship” that was “forged in difficult circumstances” and is “stronger than ever”.

Reporters shouted multiple questions at Biden about George Clooney saying the president should drop out of the 2024 race as they were escorted out of the room. Biden did not respond.
