The president-elect of the United States, Joe Biden, called patience this Thursday to 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 around.
“Hold on, I’m here”, Biden responded to the question of what his message was for those immigrants who may be “astonished” or “fearful” when they see repeated scenarios in the United States of defiance of the electoral results that they may have thought more typical of the countries they left.
During a press conference in Wilmington, Delaware, Biden crossed out “irresponsible” the challenge to the result of the elections presented by the Trump campaign, who this week seemed to pressure a representative of his party in Detroit (Michigan) to will not certify your rival as a winner.
“I’m sure that [Trump] he knows he has not won. I’m not the one to question their motives, but what he’s doing is outrageous “, Biden opined.
The president-elect added that Trump’s maneuvers confirm that it is “one of the most irresponsible presidents in the history of the United States” and said it is sending “an incredibly damaging message to the rest of the world about how democracy works.”
However, he assured that for now does not consider suing to the federal GSA (General Services Administration) agency for force her to certify you as a winner the election, a step without which Biden cannot access key government resources to prepare for his rise 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 that can cooperate with the Republican opposition to ensure that his victory is validated in the states where he beat Trump.
Relay in the Treasury
At his press conference, Biden also said that he has already decided who will be his Secretary of the Treasury from the United States, 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 Yellen like the senator Elizabeth Warren They have run for that position, but Biden did not want 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 talk about the pandemic and the economy, and wanted to make something clear after the meeting: “I will not push for a national shutdown [de la economía], because each community is different. That would be counterproductive, “he stressed.
