President-elect Joe Biden warns Americans that the worst is yet to come in the fight against the coronavirus pandemic.
Reading from a prepared statement directed toward the American people, President-elect Joe Biden said:
“One thing I promise you, about my leadership during this crisis: I’m going tell it to you straight. I’m going tell you the truth, and here is the simple truth. Our darkest days in the battle against COVID are ahead of us, not behind us. So we need to prepare ourselves, to steel our spines, as frustrating as it is to hear. It’s going to take patience, persistence, and determination to beat this virus.”
Biden’s tone and message was different from that of President Donald Trump, who has told Americans since March that the country is about to turn the corner in its fight against coronavirus.
President-elect Joe Biden seems to doubt that the release of the vaccines, the passing of the stimulus relief, and the recent growth of the economy is the beginning of better times ahead.
Peter Doocy of Fox News got an unusual response from Joe Biden when shouted a question regarding Hunter Biden on whether the story was “Russian disinformation”:
Fox's Peter Doocy asks Biden if he still believes that "the stories from the fall about your son Hunter were Russian disinformation and a smear campaign."
After first mocking Doocy as a "one-horse pony" and saying "God love you," Biden replies "yes, yes, and yes" pic.twitter.com/R9l3yiYq5X

Biden also defended his inability to name a nominee for the position of Attorney General, saying it takes time to put a good team together.
