‘More people may die’ if Trump doesn’t cooperate with transition – Biden

President-elect Joe Biden warned that President Donald Trump’s unwillingness to accept the outcome of the 2020 election could hamper the incoming Biden administration’s ability to rapidly distribute a coronavirus vaccine.

“More people may die if we don’t coordinate,” Biden told reporters Monday in Delaware, in a news conference after he met with labor and business leaders and delivered a speech on the economy.
Biden’s comment comes as Trump refuses to acknowledge the reality that he lost the presidential election. The Trump-appointed administrator of the General Services Administration has so far refused to take the legally necessary step to begin the transition process, which would give Biden’s team a budget, intelligence briefings and access to federal agencies.
Biden said coordination is important “now, or as rapidly as we can get that done,” and said that “it would make it a lot easier if the President were to participate.”
“I am hopeful that the President will be mildly more enlightened before we get to January 20,” he said, making note of the date he will be inaugurated.
Biden criticized Trump for failing to work with Congress to negotiate a measure to aid businesses and unemployed Americans as the pandemic rages heading into the winter.
“The idea the President is still playing golf and not doing anything about it is beyond my comprehension,” Biden said.
His speech came the same day as news that early data shows Moderna’s coronavirus vaccine is 94.5% effective — and a week after early data showed Pfizer’s vaccine is 90% effective.
