President-elect Joe Biden said Tuesday that the Trump administration has already begun to reach out to his transition team, and he described the effort as “sincere,” a day after a federal agency released a letter to formally begin the transition of power.
“Immediately, we’ve gotten outreach from the national security shop to just across the board,” Biden said in an exclusive interview with NBC News’ Lester Holt.
“And they’re already working out my ability to get presidential daily briefs, we’re already working out meeting with the Covid team in the White House and how to not only distribute but get from a vaccine being distributed to a person able to get vaccinated, so I think we’re gonna not be so far behind the curve as we thought might be in the past.”
He added, “And I must say the outreach has been sincere — it has not been begrudging so far and I don’t expect it to be.”
