U.S. President Joe Biden Stops On Guam


President Joe Biden stops on Guam for refueling on the way back to Washington

Last night, U.S. President Joe Biden paid the island a brief visit — as Governor Lou Leon Guerrero was the first to greet him.

The stopover on the island follows Biden’s first-ever face-to-face meeting with the President of the People’s Republic of China, Xi Jinping, since taking office, in Bali, Indonesia, prior to the G20 Summit–where the two leaders, as PNC previously reported, both agreed to cooperate to tackle global issues such as climate change and maintaining global financial, health, and food stability.

According to Governor Leon Guerrero, the meeting between the two world leaders will open pathways for Guam to contribute to stability, peacekeeping, and prosperity in the region.

She went on to describe her “warm and friendly” conversation with Biden, stating in part:

“With the support of the Biden-Harris Administration and the strength of our federal partnerships, we know that Guam will receive substantial assistance to help us build a better healthcare system, better schools, and a better quality of life for our island and people.”

The Governor mentioned further that the Leon-Guerrero administration is ready to chart the right course for Guam, as Vice President Kamala Harris will visit Thailand and the Philippines to affirm our nation’s enduring commitment to the Indo-Pacific.
