The U.S. president will begin his first trip abroad since taking office on Wednesday, flying to Europe for an eight-day diplomatic push that will end with a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin next week. Diplomatic and trade trans-Atlantic relations were severely tested during the Trump presidency, after the U.S. withdrew or threw scorn on several multilateral organizations, and there were repeated tariff disputes. Biden will attend a summit in Cornwall, southwest England of the leaders of the G-7 — the seven richest democracies — after meeting U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson, who chairs the meeting, as well as European Union leaders.
