Biden doesn’t know what secrets are in Mar-a-Lago documents: In an interview that aired on CBS on Sunday, President Joe Biden said that he had not received a briefing on the secret papers that government officials discovered at former President Donald Trump’s Florida resort last month.
Because he doesn’t want to become involved in the Justice Department’s probe, Biden told “60 Minutes” that he hasn’t “asked for the details of those materials.”
He said, “I promised I would not instruct them what to do and, in reality, not participate in advising them how to prosecute or not.”
In the past, Biden had claimed that he had “zero” warning before the FBI raided Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home. Then, 11,000 papers, including 54 designated “secret” and 18 “top secret,” were taken by agents.
His most in-depth remarks on the materials make to CBS News.
Regarding whether the papers include national security secrets, Biden said he had “not personally talked to anybody.” But he said, “I’m sure my administration and the National Security Council are aware of all that.”
Biden referred to it as “absolutely irresponsible” and expressed his confusion about how such sensitive materials could have gotten up at Mar-a-Lago.
The COVID-19 epidemic, according to Biden, is finished. “COVID is still a concern for us. “We’re still working hard on it,” he said. However, the epidemic has ended.
According to Biden, no one is hiding their faces, and “everyone looks to be in very decent form.”
However, the World Health Organization’s director general said the epidemic might be nearing a turning point at a news meeting last week.
Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, director general of the WHO, remarked, “We are not there yet, but the finish is in sight.”
To determine whether he would seek reelection in 2024, Biden said it is “far too early.”
As I initially said, Biden stated I wanted to run again. However, it’s just an intention.
But have you decided that I should run again? That is still up in the air.
As in the past, Biden said that if China invaded Taiwan, U.S. armed troops would protect it. He said the U.S. policy of “strategic ambiguity” toward Taiwan, which Biden had previously mentioned on a trip to Asia in May, had not altered.
