WASHINGTON / WILMINGTON, Del. – President-elect Joe Biden will continue to lay the groundwork for his administration on Thursday over the state of rising COVID-19 cases across the United States, as President Donald Trump refuses to accept the results of the election.
Biden appointed longtime adviser Ron Klain as his chief of staff at the White House on Wednesday, his first major position since winning the November 3 presidential election.
Klain, who served as President Barack Obama’s “Ebola Czar” in 2014 during the outbreak in West Africa, is expected to play a key role in turning Biden’s management into a global revolution in the COVID-19 cases.
Trump’s efforts to change the election results in key constituencies did not stop Biden from making plans to take office on January 20. The Democrats spent most of the week full of advisers on workers’ decisions.
So far, the nominee has not indicated that he will admit it, although his unsubstantiated allegations of voter fraud spread to key countries have met with skepticism from judges and legal analysts.
Since the election was called to Biden by major news organizations on Saturday, Trump has maintained a small public program, opted to express his grievances on Twitter, and has not faced HIV nationwide.
The United States as a whole reported more than 1,450 deaths on COVID-19 on Tuesday, the highest in a single day since mid-August, leading to a death toll of more than 239,000, according to figures.
MANY LEADERS ENJOY THE HOSPITAL
Biden won the victory on Saturday after being declared the winner in a series of battlefields, giving him the more than 270 election votes required at each state’s Electoral College to decide who would win the presidency. Biden also received the most popular national vote with more than five million votes in the few provinces that are still voting.
Many world leaders have seen Biden’s victory, with Australia, Japan, and South Korea joining a list of allies congratulating Biden on the telephone. China and Russia are still standing.
Like Trump, the first U.S. president Defeated by a re-election bid since 1992, which has been trying hard to hold on to power, his superiors have opposed co-operation and reform efforts.
Democrats and other critics have accused Trump of seeking to undermine public trust in the U.S. election system. And to give Biden victory through illegal claims, of voter fraud.
In Klain, meanwhile, Biden is bringing in loyal and experienced operators and once served as a senior aide to Vice President Al Gore during Bill Clinton’s tenure. Klain also advised President Gore’s campaign during Florida’s 2000 trial that the Supreme Court ruled in favor of George W. Bush.
As Biden’s chief of staff during the 2008-2009 financial crisis, Klain helped oversee the implementation of the $ 787 billion Reimbursement Act that boosted the then existing economy.
“(Klain’s) deep, diverse knowledge and ability to work with people across the political arena is exactly what I need from the White House human resources manager,” Biden said in a statement.
While Trump has been openly critical of the election results, he has been thinking of another way to run for president in 2024.
On Wednesday, he authorized a leading partner, Ronna McDaniel, to continue her work as chair of the Republican National Committee – a rare act by an outgoing president.
Meanwhile, Trump’s 2020 campaign continues to fight backwards, bringing a new case to Michigan. The case appeared to have not changed the outcome of the state, which was won by Trump in 2016: he lost about 148,000 votes, or 2.6 percent, in Michigan invalid votes, according to Edison Research.
The case has sparked allegations of voting misconduct, with a focus on Democratic County court in Wayne County, including Detroit. Jake Rollow, a spokesman for the State Department in Michigan, said Trump’s campaign promotes false allegations of undermining public confidence in elections.
“It does not change the reality: Michigan elections are fair, secure, transparent, and the results are an accurate indicator of democracy,” Rollow said in a statement.
Judges have dismissed many of Trump’s cases, and legal experts say the lawsuit is likely to have far-reaching consequences.
A Republican strategist with the White House said legal measures and demanding the census were aimed at garnering support for Trump’s voter fraud claims. He declined to be named in order to discuss internal issues at the White House.
The strategist, like many others close to the effort, has admitted that Trump’s campaign is a struggle for rise.
“They are looking to lift a hundred Hail Marys,” he said, using a football name referring to a long, ambitious pass at the end of the game by a losing team with only a small chance of success.
