A new book on the administration claims that Vice President Joe Biden does not trust certain of the Secret Service agents who are around him and that he does not believe some elements of the incident with his dog Major biting someone. According to “The Fight of His Life: Inside Joe Biden’s White House” by Chris Whipple, Biden has trust issues with some agents, in part because some agents are staunch supporters of former President Trump. This is one of the reasons why Biden has these challenges.
Biden Doesn’t Speak About Sensitive Matter in Front of Secret Service
According to a new book, President Biden avoids discussing sensitive subjects with Secret Service personnel and once told a friend that he believed a Secret Service agent who claimed to have been bitten on the leg by then-first dog Major last year was lying, despite internal emails showing the German shepherd bit agents eight days in a row.
Observe, the Secret Service is never present up here. The second level of the White House is where the purported attack took place, and Biden reportedly stated, “It didn’t happen. According to passages from “The Fight of His Life” published by The Independent before to the book’s Jan. 17 release, Biden believed “someone was lying” about how the incident had transpired.
According to reports, the president’s response to the event involving the dog is part of a larger mistrust on the part of the principal target of the security service. Biden has been wary of the Secret Service ever since he took office, according to Whipple, a renowned authority on West Wing management. Biden reportedly believes that many rank-and-file personnel backed former President Donald Trump.

The Dog Biting Incident
After a “biting incident” involving a member of White House security in 2021 that made news concerning the first family’s German shepherd rescue dog Major, the president allegedly wasn’t persuaded that Secret Service personnel were telling the truth about what occurred. The Fight of His Life: Inside Joe Biden’s White House, a recent book by Chris Whipple, asserts that Biden “wasn’t buying the details” of the event, according to The Hill, which got a copy of the book.
According to The Hill, Whipple writes in the book, “Somebody was lying, Biden felt, about the way the episode had gone down.” Whipple claims that one of the factors contributing to Biden’s doubt is the fact that the Secret Service rarely visits the part of the White House where Major is said to have harmed an agent.
Biden’s Discomfort With Secret Service
“Biden’s unease with his Secret Service team was a bigger problem; some of them were MAGA enthusiasts,” the article states. According to a copy of the book that The Hill was able to get, Whipple wrote that the character “did not trust them.” Whipple said that the Secret Service is “full of white ex-cops from the South who tend to be deeply conservative,” and that Biden’s detail as president is significantly larger than it was when he was the vice president.
Additionally, many officers are now “MAGA sympathisers.” The response of the Secret Service to the attack on the United States Capitol on January 6, 2021, which occurred after Trump attempted to politicise the agency and made Tony Ornato deputy chief of staff for operations in the White House, added to the president’s concerns about the state of national security.

The Book Obtained Earlier
According to a copy of the book that was obtained by The Independent prior to its scheduled release date of 17 January 2023, Whipple writes that Mr. Biden simply did not trust the agents. Whipple also notes that Mr. Biden’s attitude is in stark contrast to how he felt during his years as vice president, when he had become very close with the agents on his detail. In addition, he suggested that the president shouldn’t have been surprised by the presence of “Maga sympathisers” among his bodyguards because the Secret Service “is full of white ex-cops from the South who tend to be deeply conservative.” He said this because the Secret Service “is full of white ex-cops from the South who tend to be deeply conservative.”
President has been Surrounded by Secret Service from More than 8 Years
More than eight years had passed since the president had been protected by agents of the Secret Service, beginning with his time as vice president and continuing through his campaigns for president and president-elect. However, his relationship with the individuals who take an oath to defend the United States Constitution and protect the President of the United States, whoever that person may be, was further strained as a result of the actions taken by the agency in the aftermath of the violent attack on the Capitol that was fomented by his predecessor.
