It’s Tuesday.

For Tuesday, June 15th, 2021, the President, who is overseas, will have; received his daily brief and held several bilateral meetings. He will have left Brussels, Belgium headed to Geneva, Switzerland, where on Wednesday he will meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

He hasn’t tweeted so far for Tuesday, so any tweets he issues, will be shared at the end of the article.

When Monday’s Open Thread was published, President Biden had issued 2 tweets and no retweets. He added 6 tweets and 1 retweet, giving him a Monday Tweeting Total of 8 tweets and 1 retweet.

He shares a live stream to a press conference he held at the conclusion of the NATO Summit.

The press conference was 26 minutes and 34 seconds long. It begins with President Biden already speaking. The White House published a transcript of his remarks. They had a formatting issue, in which they posted in the same link his remarks twice. It’s possible they will replace the formatted poorly remarks.

President Biden from his opening remarks prior to taking a handful of questions (2:10): I had the honor of leading off the discussion today among the 30 nations, and I pointed out that we’re facing a once-in-a-century global health crisis.  At the same time, the democratic values that undergird our Alliance are under increasing pressure both internally and externally.  Russia and China are both seeking to drive a wedge in our transatlantic solidarity.  We’re seeing an increase in malicious cyber activity. But that our Alliance is the strong foundation on which we can — our collective security and our shared prosperity can continue to be built.

He shares a 18 second video montage of Windsor Castle.

There is no voice over. Just a few bars playing of, I think, My Country ‘Tis of Thee.

He shares another video this time it features himself and First Lady Dr. Jill Biden wishing everyone a happy Pride month.

President Biden: Hi everyone, we want to wish you a happy Pride month. And let you know how proud we are to stand with you this month and every month. For the LGBTQ+ community, for our nation, and for the world, Pride month represents so very much.

First Lady Dr. Jill Biden: It stands for defiance in the face of injustice. The legacy of Stonewall and the fight to ensure that all people be treated with dignity and respect. It’s a fight that resonates this year on the 40th anniversary of the HIV/AIDS crisis. And the 5th anniversary of the deadly attack at the Pulse Nightclub in Orlando.

President Biden: Pride stands for courage, courage of all those and generations gone by and today who proudly live their truth. It stands for justice. As June marks the anniversary of the Supreme Court decision delivering marriage equality and protecting LGBTQ employees from discrimination. And above all else, Pride month stands for love.

First Lady Dr. Jill Biden: Make no mistake, we still have a lot of work to do to ensure that everyone enjoys the full promise of equity, dignity, and protection. And that’s especially true for trans people and for LGBTQ people of color.

President Biden: But, we’re making progress in executive orders and federal laws and representation and in hearts and minds. This administration–our administration is always going to have your back. We’re going to fight to pass the Equality Act and build a better LGBTQ life for young people.

First Lady Dr. Jill Biden: Thank you for being you. And we hope you have a bright and joyful Pride.

President Biden: God bless you, God bless you all.

He shares a picture from the G7 summit of himself and First Lady Dr. Jill Biden.

For his last tweet he says happy birthday to the U.S., Army.
