But they're not enough, diplomats and foreign policy experts say. Both Biden and his top diplomat, Secretary of State Antony Blinken, have repeatedly said U.S. foreign policy first and foremost should benefit America's middle class. A LESS DEMOCRATIC AMERICA? A major underlying concern for many foreign allies is a fundamental one, many experts say - their faith in American democracy is shaken. Biden's Democratic Party operates on a razor-thin majority in the U.S. Congress, making it difficult to pass legislation and reset international goals.

As part of the agreement, Biden and Johnson will also work to reopen travel between the U.S. and U.K. as soon as possible. U.S. national security adviser Jake Sullivan confirmed the updated Atlantic Charter agreement aboard Air Force One while en route to the U.K. Wednesday for Biden's first trip abroad as president. “There'll be a refresher of the Atlantic Charter, which is now 80 years old,” Sullivan told reporters. And while the Atlantic Charter represents the latest chapter in the "special relationship" between Washington and London, the British government said this week that Johnson doesn't like that term. An aide told The Atlantic in a profile about Johnson that the prime minister thought the phrase appeared needy.

Mr. Biden and Mr. Johnson are expected to announce what is being billed as a renewal of the Atlantic Charter — the declaration of post-war cooperation that Prime Minister Winston Churchill and President Franklin D. Roosevelt laid out in 1941 during World War II. Mr. Biden opposed Britain’s drive leave the European Union, a push that Mr. Johnson helped lead. Mr. Biden and Mr. Johnson will meet on Thursday afternoon at Carbis Bay in Cornwall, before Friday’s meeting of Group of 7 leading industrial nations. Mildenhall, he called his weeklong diplomatic overture “essential,” saying that no nation acting alone could meet the world’s challenges. Mr. Biden also cast his trip in broader terms as an effort to rally the United States and its allies in an existential struggle between democracy and autocracy.

With a nod to Black Lives Matter, UK's Johnson gives Biden mural photo

Biden reciprocated by presenting Johnson, a keen cyclist, with a U.S.-made bicycle and helmet and giving a silk scarf and leather bag made by military wives for his wife Carrie. Johnson's gift, presented during a G7 summit which marks Biden's first official overseas engagement and a chance to reaffirm trans-Atlantic ties, is a nod to the Black Lives Matter movement that has pushed race relations to the fore in both countries. Douglass escaped slavery in the United States, going on to become an abolitionist leader who toured Britain and Ireland, with which Biden has ancestral ties. The black and white mural portrait of Douglass was photographed by dual British-U.S. national Melissa Highton. Our Standards: The Thomson Reuters Trust Principles.

“It was a statement of first principles, a promise that the United Kingdom and the United States would meet the challenges of their age and that we’d meet it together,” Mr. Biden declared after his private meeting with Mr. Johnson. “Today, we build on that commitment, with a revitalized Atlantic Charter, updated to reaffirm that promise while speaking directly to the key challenges of this century.”Meeting in a seaside resort on the Cornwall coast of England, with Royal Navy ships patrolling to protect the in-person meeting of the Group of 7 industrial nation leaders, the two men clearly sought to cast themselves in the Churchill and F.D.R. As they looked over a small exhibit of the original Atlantic Charter, agreed on aboard a ship off Newfoundland in August, 1941, less than four months before the Pearl Harbor attack, Mr. Johnson noted that “this was the beginning of the alliance, and of NATO.”But Mr. Biden’s aides said they thought the Charter had grown musty and did not reflect a world of different challenges — from cyberspace to China — in which Britain is a much-diminished power. Where the original charter contemplated the “final destruction of the Nazi tyranny” and called for freedom to “traverse the high seas and oceans without hindrance,” the new version focused on the “climate crisis” and the need to “protect biodiversity.” It is sprinkled with references to “emerging technologies,” “cyberspace” and “sustainable global development.”

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg and US Vice President Joe Biden meet for bilateral talks during the 51st Munich Security Conference in Munich, Germany in February 2015. Joe Biden has that rarest of opportunities that history provides: the chance to be a transformative foreign policy president. "The forces are aligned for an American leader like Joe Biden," said Chuck Hagel, his long-time friend and former secretary of Defense. By useful coincidence, the charter will celebrate its 80th anniversary in President Biden's first summer in office. What's giving this effort even greater urgency is the realization that Joe Biden is 78 years old.
