Details Behind Bill Clinton’s Lunch at the White House
ON THIS DAY IN HISTORY…
1904: The United States begins construction on the Panama Canal.
Former President Bill Clinton returned to the White House to have lunch with President Joe Biden.
The pair had “a wide-ranging discussion,” White House press secretary Jen Psaki told reporters.
Biden and Clinton have “had a number of conversations,” Psaki said.
“And they talked about having lunch just a few weeks ago, so this is an opportunity to do exactly that, and I’m sure they will have a broad conversation,” she added.
While The Hill noted that Biden’s lunch with the former president precedes what is sure to be a challenging midterm election, Psaki did not respond to a question on if POTUS sought advice regarding the impending midterms from Clinton.
Clinton is not the only former president to have had lunch at the White House recently. Psaki told reporters that Biden had lunch last week with former President Barack Obama.
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton did not join Biden and her husband for lunch, according to The Hill.
