White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki confirmed last week that the dogs would be returning, and described the biting incident as Major being "surprised by an unfamiliar person".
The dogs had been in the Biden's home state of DE, where Major received some additional training after having been startled by a Secret Service agent who received a minor injury from the fracas.
Biden also clarified that "didn't banish [Major] to home", but rather the dogs were brought to DE because he and First Lady Dr.
First lady Jill Biden has said training the dogs for their new life at the White House has been a priority since they moved in after Biden's January 20 inauguration.
"Every door you turn to, there's a guy there in a black jacket", Biden told the news outlet. "You turn a corner, and there's two people you don't know at all". And they move - and he moves to protect.
U.S. Vice President Kamala Harris, who will join Biden at the White House meeting on Wednesday, on Wednesday acknowledged the overcrowding and processing delays, but said there was no quick fix. "He has a long friendship with Leader McConnell and has spoken with him, speaks with him regularly, we're obviously not going to read out all of those calls". "I realize some people, understandably, are afraid of dogs to begin with", he told ABC News.
US officials struggle to house and process an increasing number of unaccompanied children, many of whom have been stuck in jail-like border stations for days while they await placement in overwhelmed government-run shelters.
And as for whether the twin House gun bills can make their way through the Senate without Sen.
The White House said Thursday that it would dedicate another $10 billion to try to drive up COVID-19 vaccination rates in low-income, minority and rural enclaves throughout the country. Democrats have renewed calls to pass the bills after back-to-back mass shootings in Atlanta and Boulder.
"The dog's being trained now [with] our trainer at home in DE", the president said. Biden "hasn't done the vote count but this shouldn't be a political issue".
