Daily US Times: Joe Biden, who won the November 3 election, says the White House co-operation has so far been “sincere” in helping his transition to power.

“It has not been begrudging so far, and I don’t expect it to be,” he said in a NBC News interview.

The President-elect spoke as he unveiled his choice of key officials for when he takes over from Donald Trump in January.

President Donald Trump finally agreed to allow the formal transition process to begin on Monday, nearly three weeks after the election. The White House co-operation began after that.

Mr Trump still refuses to admit defeat, repeating unproven claims that the November 3 vote was “rigged”.

Mr Trump’s efforts to challenge the election results in key states in courts have so far failed. Pennsylvania and Nevada officially certified Mr Biden’s victory On Tuesday, a day after the same outcome was announced in Michigan.

Speaking to NBC’s Nightly News, Joe Biden confirmed he had not yet spoken to the president Trump but added that he did not expect the beginning of his term to be affected by the delay in beginning the transition.

The president-eelct said: “It’s a slow start but it’s starting and there’s two months left to go, so I’m feeling good about the ability to be able to get up to speed.”

Biden said there were plans for him to meet the Covid-19 task force in the White House about coronavirus vaccine distribution and access.
