President Joe Biden gushed over the scenic views in the United Kingdom, claiming he was not ready to return to the United States.

“It’s gorgeous. I don’t want to go home,” Biden said to the press who were allowed access to the president’s activities.

When he arrived, Biden ignored the offer a handshake to Johnson, choosing instead to greet his wife Carrie first.

Biden complimented Johnson’s wife during their bilateral visit, noting he and Johnson “married way above our station.”

“I’m not going to dissent from that one,” Johnson replied. “I’m not going to disagree with the president on that, or disagree on anything else is highly likely.”

Biden has previously expressed his passion for the scenic beauty of Europe, including his ancestral home of Ireland.

The president joked in a virtual meeting with the Irish Prime Minister in March he wished his ancestors had remained in Ireland.

“I joked at the time, after I left, I wondered why the hell we left in the first place; it’s beautiful,” he said.
