Jill Biden Will Meet With US Troops In Romania

The First Lady speaks during the 2022 National and State Teachers of the Year event in the East Room of the White House on Wednesday, April 27.

The White House has announced that Jill Biden will spend Mother’s Day meeting with Ukrainian mums and children who ran for their lives after Russian President Vladimir Putin swarmed Ukraine.

The May 8 meeting will take place in Slovakia, one of two eastern European countries the first lady plans to visit during a five-day pilgrimage that starts Thursday, she will also be stopping in Romania.

The trip will mark Joe Biden’s latest display of solidarity with Ukraine and comes just after US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi made a clandestine visit to Kyiv on Saturday to meet with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, offering support amid Russia’s attack on the country.

Romania and Slovakia share borders with Ukraine, which has spent the past two months fighting off Russia’s military attack.

The two countries are also NATO members.

According to the UN High Commissioner for Refugees, almost 5.5 million Ukrainians, mainly women and children, have escaped Ukraine since Russia swarmed its smaller neighbour on February 24.

Many have relocated to neighbouring countries or resettled elsewhere in Europe.

The White House said that throughout the trip, Jill Biden will also meet with US service members, US Embassy personnel, humanitarian aid workers and educators.

After arriving in Romania on Friday, she’s scheduled to meet with US service members in Mihail Kogalniceau Air Base, a US military installation close to the Black Sea.

The schedule then takes her to the Romanian capital of Bucharest on Saturday to meet with government officials, US Embassy staff, humanitarian aid workers and educators who are helping teach displaced Ukrainian children.

The first lady will journey to Slovakia to meet with staff at the US Embassy in Bratislava, and on May 8, Jill Biden will travel to Kosice and Vysne Nemecke in Slovakia to meet with refugees, humanitarian aid workers, and local Slovakians who are helping Ukrainian families who’ve sought shelter in Slovakia, and she intends to meet with members of Slovakia’s government on May 9 before returning to the United States.

Four days after Russia’s February 24 attack on Ukraine, Joe Biden appeared at a White House event sporting a face mask embellished with a sunflower, Ukraine’s national flower.

She also invited Ukraine’s ambassador to the United States, Oksana Markarova, to sit with her during President Joe Biden’s State of the Union address in March, and had a sunflower stitched into the sleeve of the blue dress she wore for the event.

But there’s nothing like the Biden’s and Pelosi using the Ukrainians to prop up their midterms – have they really no shame at all?

This is a disgrace and perhaps Jill Biden should remain at home to wet nurse her hubby, Joe Biden, and I think that those poor Ukrainian mothers have been through enough and they should be spared from Jill Biden.

It’s extremely heartbreaking that all this is occurring to Ukraine, it really is, but we should be keeping our beaks out of their business and just let them get on with it because it’s not our war. However, if you feel you need to take in a few Ukrainian children or families because you can afford to do it, then that’s amazing, and hopefully, Vladimir Putin won’t threaten the US, either that or he doesn’t have the balls to do it.

It would be lovely if some of these politicians could focus on what’s occurring in their own country. Perhaps this is just a business trip for Jill as her husband sits at home – what a total waste of tax dollars, and this is just a lame publicity stunt which they’ve honed to a fine art.

My vision on life is pretty broad, therefore I like to address specific subjects that intrigue me. Therefore I really appreciate the world of politics, though I have no actual views on who I will vote for, that I will not tell you, so please do not ask! I am like an observation station when it comes to writing, and I simply take the news and make it my own. I have no expectations, I simply love to write, and I know this seems really odd, but I don't get paid for it, I really like what I do and since I am never under any pressure, I constantly find that I write much better, rather than being blanketed under masses of paperwork and articles that I am on a deadline to complete. The chances are, that whilst all other journalists are out there, ripping their hair out, attempting to get their articles completed, I'm simply rambling along at my convenience creating my perfect piece. I guess it must look pretty unpleasant to some of you that I work for nothing, perhaps even brutal. Perhaps I have an obvious disregard for authority, I have no idea, but I would sooner be working for myself, than under somebody else, excuse the pun! Small I maybe, but substantial I will become, eventually. My desk is the most chaotic mess, though surprisingly I know where everything is, and I think that I would be quite unsuited for a desk job. My views on matters vary and I am extremely open-minded to the stuff that I write about, but what I write about is the truth and getting it out there, because the people must be acquainted. Though I am quite entertained by what goes on in the world. My spotlight is mostly to do with politics, though I do write other material as well, but it's essentially politics that I am involved in, and I tend to concentrate my attention on that, however, information is essential. If you have information the possibilities are endless because you are only limited by your own imagination...
