Mr Biden and his wife, who have been married since 1977, have reflected on the country’s next steps following Donald Trump’s presidency. Reflecting on the state of affairs, Mr Biden said the United States had “problems”, as well as “opportunities.”
He said: “We have such an incredible opportunity as a country now.
“Not because of me but because the American people sort of had the blinders ripped off, and they realised that, man, we have problems, but we also have enormous opportunities.”
The couple also reflected on their move to the White House and getting used to life on the 55,000 sq ft building.
President Biden described living in the executive residence as “surreal” but “comfortable” as he recalled his time as Barack Obama’s Vice President.
He added: “We were here for eight years, just not in this part of the residence.
“Spent a lot of time in the Cabinet Room and the Oval with the president. So upstairs [in the private family quarters] is new.”
Dr Biden added: “The residence staff has been so great, trying to make it feel like home for us.
“We have family pictures all around, our books, some furniture we brought from home.”
