Joe and Jill Biden dispelled the press on Friday night’s American summit in Los Angeles, according to a report by America’s radio spokesman Petsy Widakuswara. Earlier this week, Joe Biden complained to reporters about a press coverage of an Air Force One meeting during a flight to Los Angeles.
The summit was boycotted by the leaders of Mexico and several other Central American countries, trapping the White House (again).

Politico reported on Joe Biden’s unusual session with journalists on Wednesday (excerpt):
JOO BAIDENS does not have many unregistered chats with journalists. That’s why the traveling White House press corps was surprised and intrigued when the president recently visited the West Bank, visited the Air Force One press office for one such session with them.
But Biden wasn’t just there to ask questions. He had to deliver his message. According to several people familiar with the unregistered session, he spent much of his time with reporters criticizing the quality and nature of his administration’s press coverage.
The president and his family are increasingly unhappy that he is not getting the more positive coverage they think he deserves – too often the focus is on staff turnover and poor survey numbers, rather than the strong labor market and the relatively strong position of America. economic recovery.
The White House posted a promotional video for the summit.

Excerpt from CNN’s Wednesday boycott report:
Remarks by key leaders at American summit reveal Baiden’s efforts to strengthen US leadership in its neighborhood
The Mexican president’s decision to boycott this week’s summit of regional leaders in Los Angeles has rendered useless months of work by President Joe Biden and other senior officials to persuade him to attend.
The main countries in Central America are now following the example of President Andre Manuel Lopez Obrador, sending only lower-level delegates to replace their leaders. By the time Biden arrives at the summit on Wednesday, questions about the event’s invitation list and attendees will have overshadowed its broader purpose, causing dissatisfaction among administration officials who had not always been waiting for the mess.
The decision of several countries to abstain from the gathering in Southern California, protesting against Biden’s decision not to invite the three regional autocrats, has highlighted the struggle for US influence in a region that is politically divided and suffering economically.
… However, the absence of the presidents of Mexico, El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala remains significant, as the United States has worked to nurture these leaders as immigration partners, which is Baiden’s political responsibility.
… And the White House insisted that the president was firm in his belief that the autocratic leaders of Cuba, Venezuela and Nicaragua should not be invited to participate, even if it meant deepening disagreements with other countries in the region.
Earlier on Friday, Biden announced an agreement on migration (excerpt from the White House transcript):
The Los Angeles Declaration is based on four main pillars:
Firstly, stability and assistance: it must be ensured that host communities can afford to care for them, educating them about education, medical care, housing and job opportunities.
Secondly, increasing the number of legal migration routes throughout the region, as well as the protection of refugees.
Thirdly, by working together to introduce more humane and coordinated border management systems.
And finally, making sure we work together to respond to emergencies.
We know that secure, orderly and legal migration benefits all our economies. But we must stop the dangerous and illegal forms of human migration and dangerous routes.
Illegal migration is unacceptable and we will secure our borders, including through innovative, coordinated action with our regional partners.
At the same time, however, working on these efforts – humanitarian policies that secure borders and support people – represents revolutionary, integrated new approaches. It addresses the needs of vulnerable migrants and the countries that receive them. It is therefore supported by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees and the International Organization for Migration. And that is why so many countries – again 20, representing the entire migration route from Chile to Canada – wanted to sign up to be part of this common solution and have stepped up their key commitments.
