Joe Biden and Jill Biden appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert to talk about the election and his potential plans for the presidency.
During the interview, the Bidens discussed the election, whether Donald Trump will attend the inauguration and other topics.
“You’re about to be the most powerful person in the world,” Colbert was quick to mention to Joe Biden. “What is President Biden going to put into the world?”
“In the world at large, we got to say America’s back… I think the nation’s looking for us to be united,” Biden said. “Politics have become so dirty and vicious. I think people are looking for us to come together.”
Colbert then asked whether Biden takes it personally to have a lack of support from Republican leaders, to which Biden said no.
“They’re in a tough spot. I know everybody says, ‘well they should just step up,’ ” Biden explained, adding that “a number of them sent messages to me four weeks ago” in which they admitted to him that they just needed time. “We won Georgia three times,” he said laughing.
At one point of the interview, Joe Biden suggested President Trump’s influence over Republicans will fade after he leaves office.
Biden told Colbert “with the Republican leadership in the house and the senate, I think we can get things done” Biden told Colbert.
He continued “and I think once this President is no longer office in office, I think you’re going to see his impact on the body politic fade and a lot of these republicans are going to feel they have much more room to run and cooperate.”
