(CNSNews.com) – Vice President Joe Biden told reporters Wednesday outside the vice president’s residence that he’s “not worried” that the Trump administration will dismantle everything the Obama administration has accomplished.
“No, I’m not worried about it. Look, they ran on a platform they’re going to try to move. I think there’s a lot of things that were done where we can reach some accommodation,” Biden said, flanked by the vice president-elect, his wife Karen and Biden’s wife, Jill.
“Look, it’s a whole new world. We’re prepared to work. I told Mike— the vice-president elect that I’m available 24/7,” Biden said, following their meeting.
“We’ve already talked about some matters related to foreign policy and other things, and it’s—I also said although I’d been a senator for 36 years, chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee for a decade, and I had been on the National Security apparatus for a long time, there’s a lot you get down here that you’re unaware of, that you didn’t realize existed,” he said.
“And so, I plan on being available to Mike as a senior staff for him as he moves. He could be smart and reject most of my ideas, but I think he’ll listen to some of it,” Biden concluded.
