Editor's Note

Once on a collision course with Brussels, Poland is now being prioritized over traditional allies. President Biden, the Washington Post notes, has been twice but has yet to visit Canada.

BRUSSELS - President Biden this week set out on his 10th foreign trip since taking office, making a surprise stop in Ukraine before a two-day visit to Poland.

This will be a return visit to Warsaw for Biden - his second trip to Poland in just 11 months - while he has yet to pop up to Canada as president.
