    ‘He knew who he was,’ said Biden, who is only the second Catholic president in U.S. 역사.

    ‘He knew where he went to school. He knew what a man he was, and it had such a cathartic impact on his children and my wife and our family that it meant a great deal.

    The G20 represents Biden’s debut as president at a major global summit after being sworn in during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic.

    For a leader who has staked his position to his ability to build consensus, it was a first chance to shake hands and look fellow leaders in the eye.

    ‘What we’ve seen again here in Rome is what I think is the power of America showing up and working with our allies and partners to make progress in issues that matter to all of us,’ 그는 말했다, adding that allies wanted ‘American leadershipto get things done.

    But amid all the summitry, Biden’s relationship with the pope has been one of the talking points of his trip to Rome.

    And his tribute to Francis was triggered by a question about abortion.

    Biden had a papal audience on Friday at a time when the president is under intense pressure from conservative Catholics on the issue. They want him to take a tougher stance on abortion or be banned from taking Communion.

    After their meeting the president said the pope told him he was a ‘good Catholicand that the two men did not discuss the issue during their 75-minute sit down at the Vatican.

    ‘We just talked about the fact he was happy that I was a good Catholic and I should keep receiving communion,’ 바이든이 말했다.

    일요일에, he said the pope was a man of understanding and who avoided judgment.

    ‘This is a man who has great empathy,’ 그는 말했다.

    ‘He is a man who understands that part of his Christianity is to reach out and to forgive.

    ‘And so I just find my relationship with him one that I personally take great solace in he is a really, truly genuine decent man.

    ‘I didn’t realize you all were able to film what I was doing with the Pope when I gave him a command coin,’ Biden said Sunday.

    금요일에, standing next to the pope, Biden was seen saying: '이게 맞는지 모르겠다., 그러나 미국에는 전통이 있습니다. That the president has what is called a command coin.

    Biden said it was meant for ‘warriors and leaders.

    ‘And you are the most significant warrior for peace I’ve ever met,’ Biden told the pope.

    Biden arrived nearly an hour late to the press conferencethe last item on his agenda in Rome.

    ‘We were playing with elevators,’ he said to excuse his tardiness. ‘Long story anyway, good evening.

    During the 26-minute press conference he expressed regret that Russian President Vladimir Putin and Chinese President Xi Jinping didn’t attend the Rome gathering in personafter some climate activists called the G20 commitments on climate change underwhelming.

    ‘The disappointment relates to the fact that Russia and … 중국, basically didn’t show up in terms of any commitments to deal with climate change,’ 바이든이 말했다. ‘And there’s a reason why people should be disappointed in that.

    ‘I found it disappointing myself.

    He also expressed optimism that the two pieces of his agendastuck in Congress thanks to his own partywould make it into law.

    ‘I believe we will pass my Build Back Better plan and I believe we will pass the infrastructure bill,’ 바이든이 말했다.

    ‘But we’ll see. We’ll see,’ 그는 계속했다

    ‘알다시피, you’ve all believed it wouldn’t happen from the very beginning of the moment I announced it, and you always seem amazed when it’s alive again,’ he told the reporters in the room. ‘

    '잘, you may turn out to be right. Maybe it won’t work.

    ‘But I believe we’ll see by the end of next week at home that it’s passed.








    As he exited the hall, NBC’s Peter Alexander asked him to give those in the room a thumbs up if he had commitments from Sens. Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinemathe two moderates who are holding up the Build Back Better bill.

    Biden waved as he departedbut it was unclear if his thumb was raised.

    Mario Draghi, Italian prime minister and summit host, declared the weekend to be ‘a success,’ adding that this year felt different to previous meetings when leaders found it hard to agree.

    ‘Something changed,’ 그는 말했다.

    But for all the warm words the G20 leaders failed to make concrete commitments to key climate targets such as reaching net zero carbon emissions by 2050.

    ‘We recognize that the impacts of climate change at 1.5 degrees Celsius are much lower than at 2 섭씨 온도. Keeping 1.5 degrees Celsius within reach will require meaningful and effective actions and commitment by all countries,’ was the best they could manage in their joint statement.

    During the day he hosted a side event with the European Union and other countries to strengthen supply chains.

    He announced he would issue an executive order authorizing the Pentagon to more rapidly release items from the National Defense Stockpile

    ‘Supply chain is something that most of our citizens never think twice about unless something goes wrong,’ 그는 말했다.

    ‘And during this pandemic, we’ve seen delays and backlogs of goods.
