He wrote on X: "I’m headed to the G20 – the premier forum for international economic cooperation – focused on making progress on Americans' priorities, delivering for developing nations, and showing our commitment to the G20 as a forum that can deliver."

"Every time we engage, we get better," he said.

According to reports, the President is headed for India after testing negative for COVID-19.  

His trip to India became uncertain when US First Lady Jill Biden tested positive for COVID-19 on Monday.

The White House has said all week that the president has since taken multiple COVID-19 tests, all of which have been negative so far, a CBS News report said.

Meanwhile, the White House posted on X: "President Biden is on his way to New Delhi to attend the G20 Leaders’ Summit, where he’ll work with allies and partners to further strengthen the global economy."

New Delhi will host the geopolitical summit on September 9-10.
