I Don’t Need Your Help To Take Over The Presidency, Biden Warns Trump

President-elect Joe Biden said Tuesday that he doesn’t need President Donald Trump’s help to prepare to take over as president.

Trump has refused to concede to Biden, despite Biden having won the Electoral College votes needed to win the presidency last week.

Trump has instead disputed the election results, promoting baseless claims about widespread voter fraud and launching more than a dozen legal challenges in battleground states.

As Business Insider’s Jake Lahut previously reported, Trump’s refusal means that Biden has so far been denied access to basic transition materials like funding, office space, classified information, and security clearances.

But Biden said on Tuesday that not having the access “does not change the dynamic at all of what we’re able to do.”

“We don’t see anything that’s slowing us down, quite frankly.”

“We’re already beginning the transition,” he said. “We’re well underway.”
