President-Elect Joe Biden Says ‘Nothing's Going To Stop’ The Transfer Of Power + Biden-Harris Reacts To Affordable Care Act Drama, Builds COVID-19 Task Force

President-elect Joe Biden said the transfer of power will happen…with or without Trump. Get those deets, plus what Biden said about the Trump administration trying to take out the Affordable Care Act, his new COVID-19 task force and more inside…

President-elect Joe Biden isn’t waiting for Trump to concede. He’s going to take over as our 46th president of the United States with or without him, and whoever is mad will just have to deal.  He's already in full swing with taskforce building, veting for cabinet appiintments and more - and it's only day 2 of being President & VP Elect.  Gotta love it.

During a press conference in Wilmington, Delaware today, Biden was asked about Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s remarks that there would be a smooth transition to a “second Trump administration” and the Trump administration’s refusal to concede the election. He chuckled.

Check it:

46 isn’t fazed one bit. He’s taking over as the commander-in-chief and "nothing's going to stop" that. Period.

“I’m confident that the fact that they’re not willing to acknowledge we won at this point is not of much consequence in our planning and what we’re able to do between now and January 20,” he said. As for McConnell’s allegiance to Trump? “I think that the whole Republican Party has been put in a position, with a few notable exceptions, of being mildly intimidated by the sitting president.”

President-elect Biden said Trump’s failure to concede is an “embarrassment,” but he isn’t going to let that stop him from taking steps toward leading the country.

“I just think it’s an embarrassment,” he said of Trump’s refusal to concede. “I know from my discussions with foreign leaders thus far that they are hopeful that the United States’ democratic institutions are viewed once again as strong and enduring, but I think at the end of the day, it’s all going to come to fruition on January 20.”

Over the weekend, it was announced Joe Biden and Kamala Harris won the 2020 election and would become the president and vice president in January. Since then, Trump has been spewing lies about voter fraud, demanding states STOP counting ballots and hurling lawsuits at states.

Biden has spoken to leaders in France, Germany, Ireland and Great Britain, but Trump still hasn’t spoke to Biden.  Neither have any Republican Congressmen, with the exception of 2-3.

The Supreme Court heard a challenge to the Affordable Care Act. They want to strike the act down. Biden slammed the Trump administration for being "simply cruel and needlessly divisive.” Biden if they get rid of the Affordable Care Act, 20 million Americans' health coverage will be "ripped away in the middle of the nation's worst pandemic in a century."

"Let's be absolutely clear about what's at stake: The consequences of the Trump administration's argument are not academic or an abstraction. For many Americans, they are a matter of life and death, in a literal sense," Biden said in a speech in Wilmington, Delaware. "This isn't hyperbole. It's real -- as real as it gets," he said.

Peep his speech below:

Biden has a COVID-19 plan and a new diversified task force to help him implement it.

Fortune reports:

President-elect Joe Biden on Monday named 13 doctors and health experts to his transition’s COVID-19 advisory board. Five of those 13 task force members, or 38%, are female. Nine members, or 69%, are Black, Latinx, Asian, or other underrepresented minorities.

The task force will be cochaired by David Kessler, a former head of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration under Presidents George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton; Vivek H. Murthy, a former Surgeon General under President Barack Obama; and Marcella Nunez-Smith, the associate dean for health equity research at the Yale School of Medicine and a doctor who has spent her career addressing structural inequities in health and health care.

On Twitter…

VP-elect Kamala Harris gave black women a shoutout for holding it down at the polls:

Also, a Twitter account for Biden’s dog Champ and his rescue dog Major (both German Shepherds) was created, but it was taken down due to “violating Twitter’s terms.”

On Sunday, Biden paid a visit to the cemetery where several family members, including his late son Beau, are buried at the Catholic church near his home in Delaware.
