Piers Morgan Writes '10-Point Memo' to Joe Biden Ahead of G7

President Joe Biden arrived in the U.K. on Wednesday for his first overseas trip as commander-in-chief. He will attend a three-day G7 summit in Cornwall, southwest England, from June 11 to 13, before traveling to Brussels for a NATO summit on June 14.

Ahead of the G7 opening day on Friday, British journalist Piers Morgan has prepared a "10-point memo" for Biden, published on MailOnline. The points include "groveling" to Queen Elizabeth II and not being too "woke."

There are already potential tensions between Biden and the British Conservative government, led by Boris Johnson, as the president may issue a warning to the U.K. over a dispute with the European Union about border checks on the island of Ireland.

Some of Morgan's suggestions were tongue-in-cheek—such as recommending that Biden doesn't condescend to the locals in Cornwall.

The journalist offered advice on more serious issues, however, including tensions over Northern Ireland and how Biden should behave when he meets the queen on June 13.

Morgan urged Biden not to be too "woke" while also taking aim at Laurel Hubbard, an Olympic weightlifter from New Zealand who is transgender.

He wrote: "Please don't spew any woke nonsense while you're here. We've inherited enough ultra-liberal cancel culture bullsh*t from America already, thanks very much, and we definitely don't want to hear any presidential lectures about this summit being a great step forward for 'Peoplekind', or how awful Winston Churchill was, or why it's great news that the imminent Olympic Games in Japan will see the first transgender athlete."

Morgan said the president should "grovel" when he meets the queen and not mention Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, or her husband Prince Harry. Morgan has been widely criticized for his comments about Meghan—and has suggested the couple cost him his job on the U.K. breakfast show Good Morning Britain.

"When you meet the queen, best not remind her that you publicly saluted Meghan Markle for her 'courage' after she trashed the royal family as a bunch of uncaring racists in her Oprah whine-athon," Morgan wrote, referring to the couple's recent interview with Oprah Winfrey.

"Or maybe try a bit of old-fashioned groveling if she brings it up? For all his faults, Donald Trump always vociferously backed the queen, and saw right through Princess Pinocchio, and your shocking disloyalty won't have gone unnoticed in palace quarters."

Morgan's more serious policy suggestions may be difficult for the president to follow. In particular, Biden appears to have already rejected Morgan's advice to "stay out of Ireland."

"Your job is to calm the temperature of EU-Britain relations, not inflame them further by barking out orders that anger the victorious Brexiteers who will rightly say that the whole point of leaving the EU was to stop foreign powers bossing us around and telling us what to do," he wrote.

However, Morgan was critical of Johnson, too. He warned Biden that the U.K. prime minister would try to "bamboozle" him with "bluster and buffoonery."

In addition, Morgan believes Biden should get tough on big tech, push for an investigation into the origins of COVID-19 in China, not encourage the G7 to adopt spending plans similar to his own administration's and make polluters such as India and China contribute more to tackling climate change.

Morgan concluded by joking that Biden should take away an Oxford University student who is at the center of a public row about the removal of a portrait of the Queen from a college common room.

Newsweek has asked the White House for comment.
