Biden Says It Is an ‘Embarrassment’ Trump Has Not Conceded

President-elect Joe Biden is criticizing President Donald Trump for failing to accept the results of the election.

A reporter asked Biden what his message is to Americans who are concerned about Trump’s refusal to concede and what it means for the nation.

“I just think it’s an embarrassment, quite frankly … It will not help the president’s legacy,” Biden said, adding, “I think that, I know from my discussions with foreign leaders thus far, that they are hopeful that the United States democratic institutions are viewed once again as being strong and enduring.”

He continued, “I think at the end of the day it’s all going to come to fruition on January 20 and between now and then my hope and expectation is that the American people … do know and do understand that there has been a transition.”

Watch his comments below:

While Biden has not heard from Trump, several Republicans have extended their congratulations to the former vice president, as IJR previously reported.

The president has launched several legal challenges to challenge election results in states including Pennsylvania, Arizona, Nevada, Georgia, and Michigan, as IJR previously reported.

Attorney General William Barr advised federal prosecutors to investigate allegations of widespread voter fraud and irregularities.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) revealed to reporters Tuesday the reason why some Republicans have been slow to congratulate Biden.

“Until the Electoral College votes, anyone who’s running for office can exhaust concerns about counting in any court of appropriate jurisdiction. That’s not unusual. It should not be alarming,” McConnell said.

He made it clear Trump has not made it difficult for Biden to transition.

“I don’t think anything that’s occurred so far interrupts an ordinary process of moving through the various steps that I indicated and allowing, if there is a new administration, it to work through the transition. All of these steps will be taken at the appropriate time,” McConnell said.

Responses

  1. LOL….Ken, are you practicing Republican logic? Copy and paste the same response to every article on IJR and it becomes so??? How is that working out for you?

  2. As of 11/10/2020 the electoral college vote numbers are as follows:
    Trump 0
    Biden 0
    For those that do not know, the Lame Stream Media does not determine to whom the electoral votes go to.
    Until the electoral collage votes are counted in mid-December there is no President elect, although the Democrats want you to think otherwise.
