Donald Trump’s reluctance to make concessions a “embarrassment” has been called by President-elect Joe Biden as he prepares to take over his presidency on Jan. 20, 2021, when he is scheduled to be sworn into office.
Mr. Biden was asked during a live speech on the Affordable Care Act, often referred to as Obamacare, if he had anything to say to Mr. Trump.
He answered, “Mr. President, I look forward to speaking with you.”
Asked for his thoughts on the potential reluctance of Mr. Trump to cooperate, he said, “I think it’s an embarrassment, the one thing, how can I say this tactfully, I don’t think it’s going to help the president’s legacy.”
This comes after a series of recent calls from foreign world leaders, including Boris Johnson, when Mr. Biden told them, “America is back.”

Biden emphasized that “nothing will stop the transition of power.”
Mr. Biden talked about the “divisive” topic of health care in his support of Obamacare.
“I’m not naive to the fact that health care is an issue that has divided the American people in the past.” he said.

He added, “Obamacare is the law every American should be proud of” as it is “the reason people with pre-existing conditions are protected in this country.”
He went on to add, “If you’re sick, if you’re struggling, if you’re worried about how you’re going to get ahead or get through the day, we’re not going to let you down,” he said.
“That’s a promise. We will not leave you to face these challenges alone.”
“We will win!”We will win!
