According to Asia International News Agency on the 28th, U.S. President-elect Biden said on the 28th that his country “is facing four historic crises at the same time”. He added that his team is working hard to meet these challenges as soon as possible.
Biden tweeted on social platforms: “From the coronavirus and the economy to climate change and racial justice, our country is facing these four historic crises at the same time.
By January, we have no time to waste. That’s why my team and I are working hard to take action on the first day (inauguration).”
According to the U.S. THE Hill, hours after Biden tweeted, Trump officially signed the trillion-dollar coronavirus relief and federal government budget bill.
On Saturday (26th), Biden accused Trump of “shirking his responsibility” and urged the outgoing president to sign the pending coronavirus relief bill immediately.
“It’s the day after Christmas, and millions of families don’t know if they can make ends meet because President Trump’s refusal to sign the economic relief bill passed by Congress with an overwhelming majority and a bipartisan majority,” Biden said in a statement.
The Capitol Hill previously reported that members of both parties urged Trump to sign a $2.3 trillion package. Earlier, the bill passed with bipartisan support in the United States Congress.
Earlier today, Dr. Fauci, a top infectious disease expert in the United States, said that due to the impact of the holiday, the United States will usher in the worst period of the coronavirus in the coming weeks. CNN quoted Fauci as saying: “We are really at a very critical moment. So I share President-elect Biden’s concern that things could get worse in the coming weeks.”
Biden said last week: “The darkest days of the battle against the epidemic are still ahead of us, not have been left behind by us.”
