“In international relations, all politics is personal,” Biden said during a visit to South Korea in 2013. Just after touching down in the U.K. Wednesday, Biden told service members at a Royal Air Force station in Mildenhall that he’d visited “well over 100 countries” as a senator and vice president. Biden offered: “Possibilities.”“Personal relationships are the only vehicle by which you build trust,” Biden told Xi two years later when he returned for more meetings in Beijing. There’s a risk, though, of focusing on the personal at the expense of the substance. But Biden has often told the story of his last-known face-to-face meeting with Putin, telling him bluntly that he “has no soul.”“We understand each other,” Biden says Putin replied.

Sen. Tom Carper says he'll soon have an Amtrak train station in Delaware named after him, just like President Joe Biden. "There's my train station!" An employee at the DC station recently told Carper, "you're our man, now," he said, now that Biden is president.

When Richard Arenberg, a longtime Democratic congressional staffer, co-wrote a book in 2012 defending the Senate’s filibuster, he was pleasantly surprised to get a nice reaction from a high-level reviewer: He received a complimentary note from then-Vice President Joe Biden. Great job,” reads the note that hangs in the office of Mr. Arenberg, who now teaches at Brown University. It wasn’t just Mr. Biden who liked the book; the foreword was co-written by Ted Kaufman, a longtime Biden Senate aide who took over Mr. Biden’s Senate seat when his former boss became vice president. The note merely underscores how Mr. Biden is being torn by the debate over the filibuster, now under sustained attack from critics on his Democratic Party’s progressive left. The debate has brought both the Senate and the Biden administration to an important inflection point; both will be living with the consequences of this moment for years to come.

Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Acting Director Russell Vought speaks with reporters during a press briefing at the White House in Washington, U.S., March 11, 2019. The head of the White House budget office on Thursday refused to direct staff and resources to help with the incoming Biden administration's spending plans, in an escalating dispute over what the office's responsibilities are during the transition process. Vought said that the budget agency has held more than 45 meetings with Biden staff and has "provided all information requested" about ongoing programs. "OMB staff are working on this Administration's policies and will do so until this Administration's final day in office. Redirecting staff and resources to draft your team's budget proposals is not an OMB transition responsibility."

President-elect Joe Biden's transition team can now officially work with the federal government to prepare for a handover from the Trump administration on Inauguration Day. The Biden transition already announced a roster of hundreds of people on agency review squads that will prep each department for a power handover on Inauguration Day. It's official: President-elect Joe Biden's transition team is preparing the federal government for a new administration on Inauguration Day. Biden's team hailed the move and said its staff will get to work right away. Transition team members like them are often early hires for new president's team, from the Cabinet agencies to senior slots in the White House.

But recently Biden’s transition team has approached financial groups and lobbyists to discuss policy and regulation issues, three people said. Some lobbyists fret that appearing to court the Biden team could attract the ire of congressional allies or even Trump’s Twitter feed. The Biden transition team did not respond to requests for comment. GOOD STORYThe financial industry enjoyed a bonanza under Trump officials who relaxed rules which they said were overly burdensome and hurt the economy. He added that his group had been in communication with the Biden team and some agencies to sound them out on their plans, particularly on consumer protection and PPP issues.

On Saturday after major television networks called the election for Biden, Trump accused his rival of “rushing to falsely pose as the winner” but he did not provide evidence of anything inappropriate. The transition process cannot shift into high gear until the government’s General Services Administration (GSA) certifies the winner, and it said on Saturday it had not yet made a determination. The Biden transition website - buildbackbetter.com - went live on Wednesday and even after declarations of his victory there was just a single page and no explanation of plans. COOPERATION IS KEYWhite House officials say they are abiding by statutory requirements but declined to provide details. Trump officials so far have adhered to rules such as facilitating security clearances, Kumar said.

Beyond the attacks, aides say the former vice president agonizes over how his hyper-public position has added to the formidable burdens of being his remaining son. If Hunter sounds down on the phone, Biden aides say, it can send his father into a funk and inflict a melancholy that lingers. Mr. Biden will rarely bring up Hunter himself, they say, although others certainly will. Aides become tense knowing that Mr. Biden might lash out. “It’s almost a cliché now,” said Ted Kaufman, Mr. Biden’s longtime chief of staff and short-term successor in the Senate after Mr. Biden became vice president in 2009.
