At the American airbase in the UK, Joe Biden delivered his first foreign public speech as the President of the United States to a hangar of service personnel.

On Wednesday evening, he arrived at RAF Mildenhall in Suffolk, ahead of the G7 Summit, which begins on Friday in Carbis Bay, Cornwall.

President Biden and his wife Jill boarded Air Force One for an eight-day vacation to Europe.

“Best possible way to start this trip” Biden stated.

Joe Biden’s visit to the airfield was his first outside of the United States since his electoral triumph over Donald Trump in November.

Senior officials from the base greeted him on the tarmac before loading him into his heavily-armored presidential vehicle, known as “The Beast,” and driving him in convoy to a nearby open-fronted hangar.

As he took the platform, hundreds of troops shouted and waved little American flags.

Before the president addressed his audience, the gathering, which included service personnel’s families, rose for the UK and US national anthems.

After a brief statement by First Lady Jill Biden, in which she paid honor to service members and their families, 14-year-old Sydney Glascock, whose mother and father are both service members, introduced the President.

According to the Express, Sleepy Joe managed to garble the name of the Royal Air Force (RAF) when speaking to US servicemen at Mildenhall, UK.

The Express wrote, “Embarrassingly, Mr. Biden managed to turn the RAF into the RFA, when referencing the UK’s military air force.”

The 78-year-old President said in a statement, “These partnerships have been hardened in the fire of war. Like the original Bloody Hundredth, and those RFA pilots.”

The Express reported that the First Lady joked that her husband had trouble concentrating. “Joe, pay attention,” Jill Biden said.

On the 16th of June, Joe Biden will meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Geneva.
