U.S. President-elect Joe Biden has warned that “more people could die” without immediate coordination to fight the corona virus pandemic if Donald Trump refuses to accept the country’s election results.
The incoming president is disappointed that Trump has so far refused to cooperate in the White House transformation process.
He warned that problems such as the distribution of vaccines to Americans could increase U.S. mortality from Kovid-19 if the transition is hampered.
“If we have to wait [inauguration day] It’s January 20, a month and a half behind us, to start that planning, ”he said.
“So it’s important to have coordination now – we can finish it now, or sooner.”
Nearly two weeks after the presidential election, Trump argued that despite Biden ‘s inevitable lead in key states and a key role in the referendum, he had won and made unfounded claims of massive fraud.
When Biden took office on January 20, regardless of whether Trump conceded defeat, the General Services Administration, the general lower agency that handles the federal bureaucracy, refused to certify Biden as the winner.
As a result of this move, Biden was denied classified briefings and resources for conversion.

O’Brien said the United States has had “peaceful and successful transitions, even in the most controversial times,” and that the Biden campaign has “very professional people.”
“They deserve some time to implement their policies,” he said.
