President Joe Biden is attending the G20 gathering of world leaders in Delhi and meeting with Vietnamese leaders in Hanoi this week with the goals of strengthening key relationships and countering China’s influence in the region. His trip comes after National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan warned that North Korea would pay “a price” if it supplies arms to Russia.
Back home, Biden’s path to reelection is complicated by voters’ concerns about his age, and his son Hunter’s possible indictment at the end of the month. Some congressional Republicans are also threatening impeachment.
With less than a year until the Democratic convention, where it’s expected that Biden will be officially nominated as the party’s candidate in 2024, Washington Week With The Atlantic takes stock of the Biden presidency so far and examines the challenges ahead.
Joining the editor in chief of The Atlantic and moderator, Jeffrey Goldberg, this week to discuss this and more are Elisabeth Bumiller, an assistant managing editor and the Washington bureau chief of The New York Times; Franklin Foer, a staff writer at The Atlantic and the author of The Last Politician: Inside Joe Biden’s White House and the Struggle for America’s Future; and Nancy Youssef, a national-security correspondent at The Wall Street Journal.
