The president-elect of the United States, Joe Biden, asked patience of those immigrants who came to their country in search of political stability and are now contemplating how the outgoing president, Donald Trump, tries to turn the result of the elections.
“Hold on, I’m here,” Biden replied to the question of what his message was for those immigrants They may be astonished or fearful when they see scenarios of defiance of the electoral results repeated in the United States, which perhaps they thought more typical of the countries that left.
Outraged by Trump’s attitude
During a press conference in Wilmington (Delaware), Biden called “irresponsible” the challenge to the election result presented by the campaign of Trump, who this week seemed to pressure a proxy of his party in Detroit (Michigan) not to certify his rival as the winner.
“I’m sure (Trump) knows he hasn’t won. I’m not the one to question his motives, but he is outrageous what you are doing“Biden opined.
He added that Trump’s maneuvers confirm that he is “one of the most irresponsible presidents of American history “and said he is sending” an incredibly damaging message to the rest of the world about how democracy works. “
The strategy to follow
However, he assured that for now he does not consider suing the federal agency GSA (General Services Administration), to force it to certify him as election winner, a step without which Biden cannot access key government resources to prepare for his coming to power.
Biden said he did not rule out doing so if things get even more complicated, but stressed that litigation “would take too long” and that he still believes he can cooperate with the republican opposition to ensure that his victory is validated in the states where he beat Trump.
Your work team
In his press conference, Biden also said that he has already decided who will be his secretary of the Treasury of United Statess, and that he will make the announcement either before or after the Thanksgiving holiday, which is celebrated next Thursday 26.
Both the former president of the Federal Reserve, Janet YellenThey, like Sen. Elizabeth Warren, have run for that position, but Biden declined to speculate and only predicted that the person he has selected will satisfy both the most moderate and the most progressive Democrats.
Biden spoke to the press after meeting with the governors of several states in the country to discuss the pandemic and the economy, and wanted to make something clear after the meeting.
