President Joe Biden, a former senator and governor of Delaware, has made a habit of coming out of the White House with something to say, but it’s not always to share his feelings.
And it’s rarely something he’s proud of.
The New York Times on Tuesday reported that Biden was asked at a meeting in December about a video that was circulating of him calling Trump a “bully” on Twitter.
He replied, “I’m happy that he’s the president.
I’m not really worried.”
But that was not the only time Biden has come out in public with his opinions.
Biden, who is running for reelection in 2020, has said the Democratic Party has to be more inclusive and has said he will vote for Hillary Clinton.
He’s also said that Trump is “trying to get people to believe in something” and “fear the unknown.”
And in an interview on NBC’s Meet the Press on Wednesday, Biden said that when he meets with the president, he has “to be realistic, be careful.”
“He doesn’t have to say all the things he’s going to say.
He can say whatever he wants,” Biden said.
“I don’t want him to feel like I’m in charge of him.
I don’t have any control over his actions.
I do know that I can communicate with him in a way that is honest and respectful.”
Biden also said he would like to see the Trump administration take action to protect the LGBT community.
“It’s just a matter of time before the president decides that it’s time to go back to the status quo and we have to protect people,” Biden told NBC’s Chuck Todd on Tuesday.
“The question is what happens when that moment comes.”
Biden’s statement comes after Trump said on Monday that he would “like to see” a transgender military veteran be able to serve openly.
“Wouldn’t you like to have a veteran who’s been through the rigors of serving in the military who can also serve openly?”
“What are you saying, you don’t think it’s fair?”
Biden said he doesn’t think the president is asking for a veteran to serve in the U.S. military.
He said he believes it’s the right thing to do.
“That’s not a position that’s taken by anyone, including the president himself,” Biden added.
“And he knows that.”
