President-elect Joe Biden praised the smoothness of his delayed presidential transition on Tuesday, saying efforts from the White House to hand over to him were “sincere.”.
The transition was authorised Monday after an unprecedented two-week standoff while President Donald Trump groundlessly disputed the outcome of the election.
Speaking with NBC News, Biden said that he had been authorised to receive the Presidential Daily Briefing and that agencies had been forthcoming with information.
Biden said that his and Trump’s chiefs of staff had spoken but that he had not heard directly from Trump.
But he said he still had no contact from President Donald Trump, who continues to wrongly claim he won the US election.
