Biden Attends G7 Amid Son’s Conviction, Faces Political Turmoil

President Biden is overseas for the second time in as many weeks, this time for the Group of Seven summit where world leaders are dealing with conflicts in Ukraine and the Israel-Hamas situation. However, Biden is also facing personal and political challenges back home as his son, Hunter Biden, was recently convicted on federal felony gun charges. The White House press secretary did not answer questions about how Biden found out about his son’s guilty verdict or why Biden helicoptered to Delaware to spend time with his family when his son departed for California shortly after. Biden’s son could face up to 25 years in federal prison for unlawfully having a firearm and not disclosing his drug use.

The president’s family’s personal troubles are expected to be exploited by former President Trump and Republicans, particularly during the upcoming political debate. Additionally, the right-wing and Euro-skeptic parties in Europe, including Marine Le Pen’s National Rally in France and Alternative for Germany, outperformed expectations in the European Parliament elections, casting doubts on Biden’s promotion of democracy and defense of Ukraine. Despite this, Biden and his aides are emphasizing the differences between him and his predecessor, particularly on the matter of democracy. 


Amidst these personal and political challenges, President Biden has an agenda that includes meetings with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and a sit-down with Pope Francis. He is also expected to sign a new long-term bilateral security agreement with Zelensky. However, critics remain skeptical about Biden’s prospects before November, stating that his message has been overshadowed by a variety of problems such as his son’s conviction, anti-Jewish protests, crime in American cities, and inflation.

Overall, Biden’s trip to the G7 summit is set against the backdrop of personal and political turmoil, with some questioning his ability to effectively lead amidst these challenges.
