Biden is just the latest addition to the cohort of the previous administration openly undermining the agenda the American people elected the President to carry out. First Obama himself was shadowing Trump in China, then Brennan and Comey were making their shots, now Biden is making his initiation.

Former Vice President and potential 2020 hopeful Joe Biden says he meets with world leaders and tells them to go around President Donald Trump, according to a new book on vice presidents.

According to Biden, visiting foreign dignitaries call on his experience after meeting with the current president, and he tells them that Vice President Mike Pence is a better person to talk to than Trump, The Hill reports.

“The king of Jordan comes to meet with him [President Trump] and gets in a helicopter to come meet with me in Delaware,” Biden told Kate Andersen Brower, author of the new book “First In Line: Presidents, Vice Presidents and the Pursuit of Power.”

Recounting a 10-minute meeting with Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras in Greece that turned into a 2.5 hour discussion, Biden said he reached out directly to Pence.

“What I do is, whenever that occurs, I pick up the phone and I call Mike [Pence],” Biden said. “What I tell these leaders, who are somewhat diffident about the president, I suggest they go see Mike. I explain it this way: I say that a lot of this doesn’t fall within the president’s bandwidth, because he has no experience in this area.”

Biden has floated mounting a challenge to Trump and the GOP ticket in 2020, and said he will run if no other suitable Democratic candidate runs.

Pence is the type of person who can talk to people with different views without alienating them, Biden said. “I have fundamental disagreements with Mike, particularly on social policy and what I consider basic civil rights, civil liberties, but Mike’s a guy you can talk with, you can deal with, in a traditional sense,” Biden said.
