Biden's dogs are back at the White House

Major Back at White House After Minor Run-in With Secret Service Agent

The Biden family dogs, Major and Champ, are back at the White House after being sent away for a brief time-out.

"The dog's being trained now", President Biden told "Good Morning America", last week, suggesting that 3-year-old pooch Major had not been expelled because of the incident.

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.

Afterwards, both German Shepherds were sent back to the Biden family home in Delaware.

"The dogs will come and go, and it will not be uncommon for them to head back to DE on occasion, as the president and first lady often do as well", she added, a reference to inaccurate reporting that Major was carted off to Wilmington because of a "biting incident" several weeks ago.

European Union slaps sanctions on 4 Chinese officials over Uyghur abuses
His report previous year on the forced sterilisation of Uighurs prompted global calls for the United Nations to investigate. The EU sanctions target senior officials in Xinjiang who have been accused of responsibility for abuses against Uighurs.

"Every door you turn to, there's a guy there in a black jacket", Biden told the news outlet. "And so I think he's thinking about what he wants to say, what he wants to convey, where he can provide updates, and, you know, looking forward to the opportunity to engage with a free press". And they move - and he moves to protect.

Psaki continued her briefing by checking with the next reporter: "Is it about the dogs?"

"Putting in place commonsense gun safety measures has been a passion of the President's since he was in the Senate", Psaki said. "They'd be more than happy to pick off a few of our members". Democrats have renewed calls to pass the bills after back-to-back mass shootings in Atlanta and Boulder.

The officials, along with several members of Congress, will travel to a refugee resettlement center in Carrizo Springs, Texas, the White House said in a statement, adding that it would also allow limited media coverage of the visit.

US President Joe Biden on Thursday will give his first full press conference since taking office following criticism from opponents and allies for an unusually protracted delay in exposing himself to reporters' grilling. Biden "hasn't done the vote count but this shouldn't be a political issue".
