Biden can still buy some of his family’s favorite items like new cars and house furniture at low prices, according to new research from Bloomberg News.
Biden has a $15 million line of clothes and shoes from a small department store in Delaware that can be bought for less than $30, according the research, which was commissioned by the Biden Foundation and the National Retail Federation.
Biden’s former chief of staff, Beau Biden, said on the campaign trail that Biden “could be the president of the world” by selling items like his personal furniture and clothes at cheap online retailers like Walmart.
He also made the claim in a Twitter post.
A spokesman for Biden did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
A number of other Biden family members have been touting the value of their home or business through online purchases, including his brother, Joe, former governor of Delaware and vice president, who has raised more than $1 million through online auctions.
Biden made the statement in a tweet Wednesday, calling on supporters to sign up for the Biden Free Stuff program, which offers free shipping on all purchases over $100 to people who donate $100 or more to his foundation.
“I think the best way to be able to say, ‘I have free stuff’ is to say it on social media,” Biden told a campaign stop in Iowa in March.
The program also provides $5 credit toward any Walmart gift card purchased online, including the sale of gift cards and online purchases of merchandise.
The Biden Foundation also has an online platform, called Biden Free Shipping, that offers free delivery to more than 150,000 customers worldwide.
“People want to see it.
It’s a big opportunity,” said Joe Biden, who announced his presidential run in May.
The former vice president’s family members often make the claim.
His wife, Jill Biden, told CNN in February that Biden was “the only person in the world that I trust.”
Biden’s wife, Nancy, is the chairwoman of the Biden-backed Democratic Governors Association.
She is also the president and CEO of the National Council of Women, which advocates for gender equality.
Biden also made his name as a social entrepreneur, helping start social enterprises that provide job training and job-hunting opportunities to women in the workforce.
The vice president and his wife, who also runs a nonprofit called the Biden Center for American Leadership, also have raised $250 million from wealthy individuals and foundations.
Biden did announce plans to donate $250,000 to a local chapter of the Boy Scouts, but the organization said Wednesday that he will donate $1.1 million in 2017.
Biden is also a supporter of women’s issues.
He is the first sitting vice president to attend the Women’s March in January.
