Many Democrats are worried about what will happen when the Trump team rolls into the executive branch in January, but the current vice president doesn’t seem to be one of them.
Vice President Joe Biden and his wife hosted his incoming counterpart, Mike Pence, at the Naval Observatory on Wednesday, and both couples met briefly with the press after their visit together.
When asked if there were concerns about the incoming administration, Biden told reporters that he’s “confident on day one everything will be in good hands.”
As for any concern about dismantling the previous agenda he and Obama worked so hard to build, Biden said, “no, I’m not worried about it. Look, they ran on a platform they’re gonna try and move and I think there’s a lot of things that can be done where we can reach some accommodation.”

Addressing the readiness of Trump’s transition team, Biden said that “no administration’s ready on day one. We weren’t really on day one.”
Biden and his wife, Jill, spent two hours with Pence and his wife, Karen, that included lunch and a tour of the Naval Observatory and surrounding grounds.
The current vice president did offer to put his decades of experience in public service to work as a sort of unofficial adviser to Pence. One can only hope the incoming VP politely declines!
