“In international relations, all politics is personal,” Biden said during a visit to South Korea in 2013. Just after touching down in the U.K. Wednesday, Biden told service members at a Royal Air Force station in Mildenhall that he’d visited “well over 100 countries” as a senator and vice president. Biden offered: “Possibilities.”“Personal relationships are the only vehicle by which you build trust,” Biden told Xi two years later when he returned for more meetings in Beijing. There’s a risk, though, of focusing on the personal at the expense of the substance. But Biden has often told the story of his last-known face-to-face meeting with Putin, telling him bluntly that he “has no soul.”“We understand each other,” Biden says Putin replied.

"Get ready for a lot of 'foreign policy for the middle class,'" a White House official said. Biden has aimed to execute a domestic foreign policy, one that ties refurbishing a bridge in northwest Ohio and expanding broadband to rural Indiana to countering threats from China and Russia. While former President Barack Obama's trips abroad centered on sweeping, thematic speeches outlining U.S. policy, Biden plans no major addresses. Biden's attempts to link foreign policy to his domestic agenda got a lift when G7 nations agreed to a 15 percent global minimum tax rate. Still, he said, Moscow is one challenge for which Biden's domestic foreign policy approach might face its limits.

Instead, Biden will host members of Floyd's family at the White House. As the date approaches, the White House is downplaying the political goals and focusing on the personal connection. In relation to the Floyd bill, however, the White House appears to be more in observer mode. Psaki said last week that the White House remains "deeply engaged" with the negotiators and stays abreast of their progress. The debate in the White House about how to mark the anniversary of Floyd's death is twofold, an official familiar with the discussions said.

Administration officials feared a long fight, and some were concerned that the Israelis would follow through with threats of a ground invasion into Gaza. After their calls Monday and Wednesday, the White House was privately conveying that the conversations had become more tense. When Murphy and Kaine called for a cease-fire, Israeli officials knew the pressure was going to mount. Despite the growing criticism from Congress, the White House took a light approach to Capitol Hill. 'Quiet and relentless diplomacy'"They're a closed group," a Democrat close to the White House said of the Biden team.

DEARBORN, Mich. — President Joe Biden’s visit to an electric vehicle plant here Tuesday, intended to help build support for his $2.25 trillion infrastructure bill, was instead dominated by conflict half a world away. A key piece of Biden’s infrastructure proposal includes expanding the number of electric vehicle charging stations across the country and improving American’s competitiveness in the electric vehicle market. The White House said China has more than doubled its electric vehicle manufacturing since 2010, and continues to stockpile critical supplies for batteries. CAIR’s Michigan chapter said it had not been approached by the White House about a possible discussion with the president while he was on the ground. "Southeast Michigan is the heartland of the American Muslim and Arab American communities,” said Dawud Walid, CAIR-Michigan’s executive director.

President Joe Biden plans to welcome six recipients of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program to the Oval Office on Friday as his administration signals his immigration reform plan remains a legislative priority. Maria Praeli came to the United States from Peru as a 5-year old when her sister sought medical treatment after a car accident, and now works for FWD.us, an immigration advocacy group. Leydy Rangel, who now works for the United Farm Workers, is the daughter of migrant workers in California. The meeting is just the second known gathering of DACA recipients in the Oval Office, the last also involving Biden, who was then vice president, in February 2015. Biden also met with DACA recipients on a recent trip to Georgia.

Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., from his leadership team for her outspoken criticism of Trump. Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona, whose support is essential no matter what path the White House pursues. "What the president brings to this job is there's no one who knows how to do these kinds of conversations and negotiations better than President Biden," she said. While Trump still has outsize influence over the congressional GOP, the White House says it is looking to avoid playing into the internal dynamics. "The focus of this meeting is not the future of the Republican Party, White House press secretary Jen Psaki said Tuesday.

But the Democratic president who has most shaped his first 100 days in office is the one who first popularized that benchmark for judging an administration’s success: Franklin Delano Roosevelt. While recent presidents had bristled at the 100-day timeline, Biden’s team would embrace it — setting goals for vaccinations and reopening schools that in retrospect seemed unambitious, but were hardly guaranteed at first. Doing so was crucial toward trying to rebuild public confidence after a Trump presidency that only stoked distrust in Washington. “Few words better describe the kind of president our nation needs right now. But it is not wrong to say that he has had a Rooseveltian 100 days,” he said.

Now that President Joe Biden has introduced the second major plank of his economic agenda, the White House is announcing another roster of Cabinet officials who will take lead roles in selling it to the public. Biden has assigned Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen, Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra, Education Secretary Miguel Cardona, Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack and Cecilia Rouse, chair of the Council of Economic Advisers, to serve as his "Families Cabinet," a White House official said. Each official, the White House says, has already begun to work and will soon ramp it up. Even as this sub-Cabinet takes on the additional assignment, it's Biden himself leading the public sales job. Biden's "Jobs Cabinet" — Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg, Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm, Housing and Urban Development Secretary Marcia Fudge, Labor Secretary Marty Walsh and Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo — has been doing similar work since he unveiled the more than $2 trillion American Jobs Plan.

A major focus on racial justiceEven as most of the White House discussion this week has been about Biden's economic agenda, White House officials said viewers should expect racial justice, and specifically police reform, to be front and center. "It won't look or feel or sound like it has in the past," White House press secretary Jen Psaki said. One presidential tradition that has survived the pandemic: a post-address barnstorming swing, which the White House is billing as the "Getting America Back on Track" tour. So they say that in his first congressional address as president, he will make it a priority to use "straightforward, accessible" language. It was just 14 years ago that Pelosi became the first woman to sit behind a president for an address to Congress, a milestone President George W. Bush highlighted at the start of his speech.

WASHINGTON — Joe Biden wanted a vacation. "Unlike most, you must grieve in public," Biden told Floyd's family at the funeral. "Grief must be witnessed," said David Kessler, a grief expert and author who runs Grief.com and has himself received a condolence call from Biden. "We have all been on this tragic journey for months and months and months where we haven't been able to collectively grieve." Grief has defined Biden's public life and public image since the story of the young senator's postcard-perfect family's being ripped apart made national news shortly after his election in 1972.

Last fall, while Biden was a candidate, Pentagon officials told NBC News they could not substantiate that such bounties were paid. The White House fact sheet explaining new sanctions over Russian misbehavior made clear that Russia was not being sanctioned over the issue. After Biden became president — and began receiving more detailed intelligence briefings — his comments about the alleged Russian incentive payments became more careful. "That has not changed, a senior official with direct knowledge told NBC News Thursday. McKenzie could not be reached for comment, but the official familiar with the intelligence told NBC News Thursday that no Taliban attack had been tied to Russia.

The confusion clouding Harris' first big policy assignment underscores the challenges Harris faces as she seeks to define her role inside the Biden White House. It also raises questions as to why the White House did not do more at the outset to clearly establish and communicate the shape of her new policy role. Since the announcement, aides say Harris has been focused on behind-the-scenes work, reading up on the issues and attending meetings with experts. Harris' role, aides point out, was advertised as a diplomatic mission from the start. Biden was handed a similar role when he was vice president ahead of the 2014 midterms, which saw immigration become a key issue after a similar border surge.

WASHINGTON — President Joe Biden on Friday released the outlines of his first budget proposal to Congress, a $1.5 trillion blueprint that calls for a significant increase in nondefense spending in areas ranging from climate change to gun violence. The budget also calls for a slight increase in defense spending, which would primarily be used to fund military salary increases, an administration official said. The proposal released Friday covers only discretionary spending, which accounts for about a quarter of total federal spending. Nondefense discretionary spending has been shrinking relative to the overall economy for the past decade because of budget caps imposed by Congress a decade ago. Some Democrats in Congress had been pressing for Biden to cut defense spending in his first budget proposal.

Some of President Donald Trump’s actions during his final weeks in office, including presidential pardons, could also influence the Biden administration’s approach to investigations that risk further dividing the country. Biden introduced Garland earlier this month as “a man of impeccable integrity” and “one of the most respected jurists of our time.”“He said he wanted an independent attorney general. Well, it’s very difficult to be independent if you were any kind of player in a political environment,” one Justice Department veteran said. Biden has repeatedly emphasized he would not give any direction to the attorney general about what matters to investigate — or not. “The Department of Justice has plenty of independent and fair-minded people in it,” the official said.

— It was November when the word “ascertainment” entered the political lexicon as the bureaucratic barrier for Joe Biden’s ability to formally begin his transition. The ascertainment question, only settled three weeks after Election Day, was just one of several potential barriers Biden’s team had to consider. David Marchick, director of the Partnership for Public Service’s Center for Presidential Transition, said Biden’s team will have two to three times what previous administrations have had in place. Multiple Biden officials said Abraham’s work on the transition led to something of a bidding war among principals to bring him on for a number different agency roles.

As President-elect Joe Biden prepares to take office facing more crisis than any other president in modern-American history, the stakes for his inaugural address could not be higher. Advisers also say the address will echo some of Biden’s recent speeches, which have doubled as opportunities to test inaugural themes. Still, we are told not to expect Biden’s speech to be filled with soaring rhetoric. The speech is “going to be Joe Biden” because “unity is part of who Joe Biden is. He’s working alongside Vinay Reddy, Biden’s director of speechwriting, who worked for Biden when he was vice president.

The acting assistant chief of the Capitol Police told Congress on Tuesday that he was not aware of any intelligence from the FBI in advance of Jan. 6, raising questions about an assertion by a top FBI official that threat information was shared with local police in advance of the Capitol riot. “In response to a question, Assistant Chief Gallagher also informed members that he was not aware of intelligence from the FBI in advance of January 6,” the document says. “I did not have that information, nor was that information taken into consideration in our security planning,” Sund was quoted as saying. The FBI’s Washington field office did not immediately respond to a request for comment. But NBC News also reported Tuesday that the FBI did not issue a comprehensive intelligence bulletin sharing everything its intelligence analysts had gathered about extremist postings on social media threatening violence.

WASHINGTON — House Democratic leaders are eyeing a vote on articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump as early as the middle of next week, Assistant House Speaker Katherine Clark said Friday. So we can use procedural tools to get articles of impeachment to the floor for a House vote quickly," Clark, D-Mass., said on CNN’s "New Day." Asked how early the House Judiciary Committee could bring the articles to the floor, Clark said, "That will be...as early as mid-next week." An impeachment floor vote in the middle of next week would give the Senate only a week to hold a trial before President-elect Joe Biden is sworn in on Jan. 20. Sen. Ben Sasse, R-Neb., signaled Friday that he's open to potentially convicting Trump and removing him from office if the House impeaches Trump.

President-elect Joe Biden will nominate Merrick Garland, the federal judge who Republicans denied a seat on the Supreme Court in 2016, to serve as his attorney general, two sources familiar with the matter told NBC News Wednesday. Garland, 68, has served as a circuit judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit since 1997. Circuit court, a source familiar with the matter told NBC News. NBC News had reported last month that Biden has also been considering former Alabama Sen. Doug Jones and Sally Yates, a former deputy attorney general to be his attorney general. But Senate Republicans, who controlled the chamber then, refused to even hold a hearing for him, let alone a vote.

President-elect Joe Biden plans to hit the Trump administration Tuesday for "falling short" on the pace of vaccinating Americans against Covid, a transition official said, previewing the remarks. Biden criticized Trump over the weekend for holding out on signing the bill, calling it an "abdication of responsibility." Biden's remarks on Covid on Tuesday also come as Capitol Hill grapples with whether to increase the coronavirus stimulus checks to $2,000, as Trump has been pushing for. The Democratic-controlled House narrowly passed a bill Monday evening to increase direct coronavirus relief payments, although the measure faces an uphill battle in the Republican-run Senate. Biden on Monday said that he supported increasing the direct payments to $2,000.

WASHINGTON — President-elect Joe Biden is expected to name Dr. Miguel Cardona, Connecticut's commissioner of education, as his pick for education secretary, multiple sources told NBC News on Tuesday. Many students across the country have had to receive their education virtually due to the coronavirus pandemic this year. During his campaign, Biden said he would choose someone who taught in public schools for education secretary. Cardona began his career as an elementary school teacher in Connecticut and then served as a school principal for 10 years. Later Tuesday, Biden will deliver remarks ahead of the Christmas holiday and is expected to take questions from reporters.

"I'm not a big fan of Putin's," Biden, then the incoming chair of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said in 2006. Biden has no plans to try to forge a close relationship with Putin, as Trump attempted. Addressing the issue during the first presidential debate, Biden called Trump "Putin's puppy." "In case you haven't noticed, there's a real difference between being president and vice president," Biden told Putin. "As you've noticed, I've been a very strident voice in my — the last administration about Putin and Russia, as I am now.

WASHINGTON — President-elect Joe Biden will travel to Atlanta on Tuesday to campaign for Democratic Senate candidates Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock who are aiming to unseat the state's two GOP senators in the Jan. 5 runoff election. If Democrats win both races, they will take control of the Senate. The campaign trip, which is Biden's first in six weeks, will feature both candidates as well as Stacey Abrams and Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms, a campaign official said. During the event, Biden plans to underscore what's at stake for the country in the midst of a worsening pandemic, a transition official said. If Democrats retake control of the Senate, Biden will be more likely to accomplish more of his agenda since Democrats also hold the House majority.

"That's how they beat the living hell out of us across the country, saying that we're talking about defunding the police. We're talking about holding them accountable," Biden said Tuesday in a virtual meeting with civil rights leaders, according to audio excerpts posted Thursday in a podcast from The Intercept. "Where I have executive authority, I will use it to undo every single damn thing this guy's done by executive authority. But I'm not going to exercise executive authority where it's a question where, I can come along and say, I can do away with assault weapons. There's no executive authority to do that.
