‘More people may die’: Biden cites need for Trump administration to share plans on combating pandemic

WILMINGTON, Delaware -- President-elect Joe Biden says the outgoing Trump administration’s failure to share specific plans on combating the coronavirus pandemic is stymying American businesses’ abilities to find ways to grow and survive in challenging circumstances.

He also said that more coronavirus deaths will be the consequence of refusing to share its vaccine distribution plans with his incoming administration. Biden said that “more people may die if you don’t coordinate.”

Biden said during a speech Monday that “the sooner we have access to the administration’s distribution plan, the sooner this transition will smoothly move forward.” Specifics that the administration has withheld, Biden said, like vaccine distribution, could help “small businesses and entrepreneurs that are the backbone of our communities but are teetering on the edge.”

Biden said a vaccine is vital to repairing nation’s economy, adding, “If we have to wait until Jan. 20 to start that planning, it puts us behind.” He said he understands Trump’s “reluctance” to admit defeat and share plans but calls it “a shame.”

Biden said he and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris had an “encouraging” virtual meeting with nine leaders of some of the country’s largest labor unions like the AFL-CIO and corporations, including Microsoft and Target. Biden says the leaders “all agree that means rallying the country behind a national strategy with robust public health measures.”

In her remarks, Harris pledged to shore up the economy by “creating millions of good-paying union jobs.”

Harris said the road ahead “will not be easy.” She says she and Biden witnessed the economic devastation of the pandemic firsthand on the campaign trail.

    1. Perhaps you didn’t read the article. It talked about coordinating plans. Too bad the whiny dumbass is willing to let people get sick and die to comfort his big orange ego. I knew he was stubborn but I didn’t realize until it was obvious Biden won that he was also a pussy.

  1. Why are you asking President Trump for help? I thought you had all the answers, and said Trump didn’t have a clue as to what’s going on. So now that you’re in the driver seat, what happened to your plan?

  2. Biden doesn’t have any authority until January. It’s obvious the moron loser Trump has no plan. Unfortunately disaster looms untill Biden takes office. Common sense indicates Biden needs to be briefed but that won’t happen. So Biden will have a new plan immediately. Meanwhile Jeff Allen and his five moron friends think Trump actually had a plan. Lol. No se estudia Para pendejo.

    1. And evidently a poor quality brick that dissolves in the rain. He’ll be leaving soon courtesy of the US Attorney in Albuquerque with his scumbag wall building Nazi filth buddies. La Tuna bound.

    1. Texas hasn’t gone blue for POTUS since 1976. It won’t go blue for POTUS for the foreseeable future. Ann Richards was the last Democrat governor and that was a quarter century ago. Don’t hold your breath.

  3. Winning the elections are not enough. These scumbags that completely destroyed the Republican party need to be singled out, and severely punished or Nazism will try to rise again to endanger the nation.
