According to Trump, “we’re doing incredibly,” as Biden faces reality American news

Good morning. Joe Biden has promised to deliver 100 million coronavirus vaccine shots in his first 100 days in the White House. Speaking yesterday in his hometown of Wilmington, Delaware, Biden unveiled his health team of new scientists and doctors, as well as a comprehensive plan to combat the coronavirus epidemic. When the United States handed over 15 million recorded cases of coronavirus, Biden told Americans that “we will find a collective goal out of our collective pain”.

In the parallel universe, Trump held a vaccination summit yesterday, during which he made no mention of the 286,011 Americans who lost their lives and boasted that “in many ways we are still performing incredibly”. Asked why Biden’s transitional team was not admitted to the summit, Trump hoped that “the next administration will be the Trump administration because hundreds of thousands of votes cannot be stolen”.

The Trump administration has attempted to justify the decision not to purchase an additional 100 million doses of Pfizer coronavirus vaccine. Instead, an enforcement order was issued to prioritize vaccine shipments to the United States, but that fell back a bit when the government’s vaccine development program official was asked about the order’s operation and replied, “Honestly, I don’t know.”

Several courts, including the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania, have already dismissed the application. It was the first piece of the 2020 election lawsuits that reached the Supreme Court.

But Texas is not giving up yet. To support Trump’s insistence on the presidency, the state announced yesterday that it had filed a lawsuit against the states of Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin in the Supreme Court, alleging that the changes in election procedures were illegal.

Trump’s personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, said he was feeling better and expects to be hospitalized today for a coronavirus. The 76-year-old former mayor of New York said he began to become unusually tired on Friday, but said he would only experience a “mild symptom” without a small cough and fever with his Sunday diagnosis. The lawyer led Trump’s efforts to overthrow the election result.

Biden reportedly elected Marcia Fudge, an Ohio congressman and former president of the Congressional Black Caucasus, as secretary of housing and urban development, and Tom Vilsack to re-enact his role as agricultural secretary under Barack Obama. As reports began circulating, Fudge said on Capitol Hill that it would be “an honor and a privilege” to be invited to Biden’s office, but stopped without confirming the news.

As Biden’s cabinet takes shape, the next question is what impact it will have. With roughly 60% of wealth in the U.S. inherited and 140 million Americans living in poverty, Mary O’Hara asks what Biden will do to level the playing field.

Many people were simply so relieved that Biden and Harris won that they were talking about “returning to normal wheeling” after the chaos. This is an understandable reaction, considering all that has happened. However, a return to normal levels is not possible. That can’t be the goal either.
