It’s Johnson’s first trip to the White House, a visit he never made during Donald Trump’s presidency, partially due to the COVID pandemic.
The British prime minister took the train from New York City to Washington D.C. a move the president – who earned the nickname ‘Amtrak Joe’ when he commuted daily from Wilmington, Del., to the nation’s Capitol as a senator – appreciated. Biden on Tuesday took Air Force One back to Washington.
The two men previously met in person in June at the G7 meeting in Cornwall.
