We look at another bipartisan effort to save President Biden’s infrastructure bill. We also look at the president’s efforts to mend fences with our allies in the G-7 and NATO.
SCOTT DETROW, HOST:
As lawmakers continue to negotiate an infrastructure bill here in Washington, President Joe Biden is overseas on an agenda of diplomacy and multilateralism. He’s met with G-7 leaders in the U.K. Next, he heads to Brussels to meet with NATO allies. After that, it is a high-stakes summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Geneva on Wednesday. NPR national political correspondent Mara Liasson is following all of this. And just as importantly, it is her birthday.
Happy birthday, and good morning, Mara.
