The president of the United States was first asked how concerned he was about the negotiations on public debt in America, to which he replied “not at all.” Reporters continued to bombard Biden with questions, including whether Republicans were negotiating in good faith to prevent the United States from defaulting on its $31.4 trillion debt.
“Everything is going in stages, I already participated in these negotiations. It all started…”, continued the head of the White House, before a reporter from a publication tried to ask him another question.
“Shut up already, okay? Thanks,” Biden snapped back, then paused and continued: “I still think we can avoid default and do something decent.” He ignored other questions that were put to the President of the United States.
Australia is not part of the G7, but Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida invited Albanese as a guest. The US president and the Italian prime minister were scheduled to hold talks in Sydney next week as part of a summit of the leaders of the group of four countries, which also includes India and Japan. However, the meeting was called off after Biden decided not to travel to Australia to discuss the debt ceiling before the June 1 deadline. On Sunday, Biden returns to the United States.
