Jill Biden to embark on solo tour of the Middle East, North Africa, and Europe

 May 28, 2023

The Times of Israel has reported that First Lady Jill Biden is planning to tour the Middle East, North Africa, and Europe next week.

Someone who won't be joining the first lady is her husband, President Joe Biden. The fact that she is going alone may raise yet more questions regarding the president's stamina. 

First Lady will attend royal wedding in Jordan

According to the Times, Biden will attend the wedding of Jordanian Crown Prince Al Hussein bin Abdullah II to architect Rajwa Khalid Alseif.

The newspaper noted that Mr. and Mrs. Biden "have a deep and longstanding friendship with Jordan's King Abdullah II and Queen Rania."

That relationship dates back to Joe Biden's time as serving as vice president in the Obama administration and continued after he left office.

The Times explained that Jill Biden intends to focus on women and young people during stops in Egypt and Morocco while highlighting American policies aimed at uplifting them.

"The first lady believes that supporting youth across the world is critical to our common future, with education, health, and empowerment at the heart of it," spokesperson Vanessa Valdivia was quoted as telling the Times in an email.
