However, Biden did not respond to a reporter’s question about when he was going to visit Latin America.

On the other hand, he attacked his predecessor Donald Trump (2017-2021), without mentioning him by name, for “the great damage” he caused to the region due to his foreign policy and stressed that one of the measures adopted by his government was to hold a summit, in December, of democracies, although some Central American countries were not invited to that meeting.

He added that he is spending a lot of time “talking and trying” regarding the policy towards the Venezuelan president, Nicolás Maduro, whom he described as a “dictator”.

And he pointed out that in the same way he is dedicating time to Chile and Argentina, although he clarified that “they are not the same” as Venezuela.

Biden also spoke about immigration and pointed out that people leave their homes in Central America to go to the US because “they have real problems.”

In this regard, he spoke of his achievements when he was Barack Obama’s vice president (2009-2017) and recalled that he worked to provide billions of dollars to migrant-sending nations.

For the moment, Biden has not been able to promote a major immigration reform, as he had promised, due to the tight Democratic majorities in Congress and in the first months of his Administration he encountered a crisis at the border with the arrival of record numbers of undocumented immigrants. .
