Sumary of Biden to reveal end date for US travel ban on Europe ‘within days’:
- The president was questioned on the issue at a press conference on Thursday alongside German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who he said had raised the issue with him at a working meeting.
- “We brought in the head of our Covid team, because the chancellor brought that subject up,” Mr Biden responded.
- Businesses in Germany and across Europe have been putting continued pressure on the Biden administration to relax the ban, which was put in place shortly after he took office in January.
- That pressure continued this week when Europe’s largest auto industry association, headquartered in Frankfurt, issued a letter to the US Embassy in Berlin.
