Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden took to the stage at his “Office of the President-Elect” — which his campaign created despite the 2020 presidential election not being officially called for either candidate as of yet — and spoke of how it’s an “embarrassment” that President Donald Trump hasn’t conceded the race to him following the media’s projection that Biden won said election.
“I just think it’s an embarrassment, quite frankly,” Biden said on Tuesday. “The only that — how can I say this tactfully — I think it will not help the president’s legacy. I think that I know from my discussions with foreign leaders thus far that they are hopeful the United States’ democratic institutions are viewed once again as being strong and endure.”
Here’s video of Biden’s comments:
Biden’s comments came on the same day that Trump administration Secretary of State Mike Pompeo confidently told reporters that “there will be a smooth transition to a second Trump administration.”
“We’re ready,” Pompeo said. “The world is watching what’s taking place here. We’re going to count all the votes. When the process is complete, there’ll be electors selected. There’s a process. The Constitution lays it out pretty clearly.”
All that is known for sure, as of this writing, is that there’s no current official victor of the 2020 presidential election.
