WASHINGTON (Reuters] – On Oct. 29, President Joe Biden meets with Pope Francis before going to a G20 Summit in Rome. There, he hopes for a global minimum tax of 15%. A White House official said that this was a White House statement.

Biden’s second overseas trip under his presidency will see him attend COP26, the United Nations climate conference in Glasgow (Scotland) from November 1-2. He is expected to announce key actions on top conference themes including the goals of fighting climate change, forest fires, and land use.

Biden’s recent visit to Britain and Italy to meet with top world leaders signals that the United States has reengaged with international groups following four years of Republican President Donald Trump’s “America First” policies.

However, the trip takes place amid global frustration about America’s chaotic withdrawal from Afghanistan. A rift with France over a submarine agreement with Australia and questions over the U.S. capability to meet Biden’s climate goals. As lawmakers in his Democratic Party tussle over his multitrillion-dollar legislative plan,

Biden and Macron will be meeting while they are both in Rome.

Biden will be visiting with the pope as American Roman Catholic bishops are trying to condemn Biden for supporting abortion rights. Biden attends church on a regular basis and is a Catholic. Jill Biden will be joining him at the meeting with Pope Francis.
