Promising that "America will be back" once Donald Trump leaves office, ex-Vice President Joe Biden won a standing ovation at the Munich Security Conference from delegates who find the president's brusque foreign policy stance hard to like.
Biden's successor, Mike Pence, was met with silence at a reception in the palatial Bavarian parliament on Friday evening after he delivered his signature line: "I bring you greetings from the 45th president of the United States, President Donald Trump."
Asked about European anxiety over Trump's leadership style, a senior US official on Pence's Air Force Two plane said the vice president's Munich conference speech on Saturday at the Hotel Bayerischer Hof would "help give them a different perspective".
