President-elect Joe Biden said that one of the few things he and I have ever decided on is the decision of President Donald Trump to miss his inauguration.
He’s welcome. I think it’s crucial that we stick to the existing precedents on how it is possible to sustain regulatory changes as much as we can. And now Mike, the vice-chairman, is welcome to come. Biden said we’d be proud to have him there and to make the transition a step further.
It’s a good thing, he didn’t turn up, Biden told reporters Friday at a news conference in Wilmington, Delaware, after he announced Cabinet nominations.
He overshadowed all my darkest notions about him. He was an embarrassment to the country, humiliating us all over the world. Biden said he wasn’t capable of holding the position.
Biden added, though, that he is delighted that Vice President Mike Pence will attend his inauguration.
House Democrats are writing impeachment papers, scheduled to be enforced as soon as Monday. The President-elect did not weigh in on whether Congress should impeach and oust Trump from office over his conduct leading up to this week’s riot at the Capitol by his supporters.
He said he and Kamala Harris, the vice-president-elect, are focused on preparing their agenda to tackle the coronavirus pandemic and support the devastated economy.
