Biden postpones trip to Colorado for “national security meetings”

President Joe Biden is scrapping a trip to Colorado for “national security meetings,” the White House told pool reporters Monday.

The news comes as CNN reported over the weekend that discussions are underway for a possible visit to the Middle East after Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu extended an invitation to Biden.

The White House said Sunday it had no new travel plans to announce at this time.

If Biden were to visit, it would come after high-stakes shuttle diplomacy by his Secretary of State Antony Blinken, who has traveled to several countries in the region over the past few days.

Blinken arrived back in Israel Monday morning to meet with Israeli Defense Minister Yoav Gallant and opposition leader Yair Lapid, in addition to meetings with Netanyahu and President Isaac Herzog, per a US official.

Reporters are still waiting on an updated schedule for Biden at the White House today.
