“Biden’s right,” said Biden’s wife, Maureen.
“It’s one thing to disagree with the president, but I have a feeling that he is right.”
The vice president said Biden and Biden’s daughter, Jill Biden, are on board with the VA’s plan to open an online advertising platform to help vets find jobs and to promote the agency’s new digital strategy.
“When you’ve been through a lot, you learn things and you make a lot of mistakes,” Biden said in an interview with Fox News’ Greta Van Susteren on Friday.
“I think it’s very clear that we’re on the right track and that we’ve done everything we can to help veterans find jobs, and I think it would be a mistake for the president to try to derail us.”
Biden is scheduled to hold a news conference in Washington on Sunday with President Donald Trump, Vice President Mike Pence and other senior officials.
The VA announced the new initiative, which will begin Monday, Monday, Jan. 26, to promote veterans’ jobs, the agency said.
The plan, which includes hiring and training, also includes hiring additional Veterans Affairs workers to help with the online marketing effort.
“The Biden administration is leading the way in moving forward to get our VA digital strategy ready to support veterans and their families,” VA Secretary Robert McDonald said in a statement.
The new digital plan will also provide support to VA employees to better serve the needs of vets.
VA Secretary Leon Panetta said on Wednesday that the VA is considering adding more paid online ads to the VA website.
The online ads, which could cost as much as $100,000, would help veterans navigate the VA web site, which is currently populated by a whiteboard, according to the agency.
VA spokeswoman Amy Dyer said in late July that the agency is considering advertising on its website in English and Spanish, and also looking at a plan to offer paid online advertising in Mandarin.
Panetta’s comments came amid a nationwide push by some veterans to get VA job training online.
“We can’t let this get away from us,” Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash., said in June.
“Every veteran deserves a VA job, and that includes all veterans.
The Biden administration’s latest move will make sure that VA job placement is done right.”
