Lead Story: Biden is Losing Patience With Trump
The President-elect spoke on Monday, and it is clear he is losing his patience with transition delays. The incoming leader has been gracious so far but now he wants Americans to understand the consequences of the Trump Administration’s election-challenge game.
“More people may die if we don’t coordinate,” President-elect Biden said. “If we have to wait until January 20 to start that planning, it puts us behind over a month, month and a half.”
The Trump Administration has not shown any hope of legal challenges to the election but the President keeps Tweeting that he won and forbidding federal agencies from working with the incoming administration. This means that the new administration will lack important intelligence and resources that they will need to combat the pandemic.
The President-elect also spoke about his economic efforts, signaling a strong alliance with labor unions.
“I made it clear to the corporate leaders. I said ‘I want you to know I’m a union guy. Unions are going to have increased power.’ They just nodded. They understand. It’s not anti-business. It’s about economic growth.”
