EU Chief Ursula von der Leyen meets with U.S. President Joe Biden at the White House to discuss coordinating efforts on Ukraine and trade issues.
After months of expressing concerns about the U.S. Inflation Act, European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen said the European Union is now on board with the United States.

Joining the discussion:
- Anton Fedyashin is a Russian affairs expert and Professor of History at American University.
- James P. Moore is the Founder and CEO of the Washington Institute for Business, Government and Society.
- Victor Gao is a Chair Professor with Soochow University in Beijing.
- Joav Toker is an Assistant Professor with the American Graduate School of International Affairs and Diplomacy.
