Biden slams Trump 'playing golf' as Covid stimulus stalls & says 'more people may die if we don't coordinate' transition

JOE Biden slammed Donald Trump for "playing golf" as the Covid stimulus package stalls and said "more people may die if we don't coordinate" a transition.

Biden was asked by NBC's Geoff Bennett what the "biggest threat" of Trump refusing a "smooth transfer of power" would be.

"More people may die if we don't coordinate," Biden told reporters.

The president-elect was speaking about the US economy in Wilmington, Delaware on Monday.

However when the time for questions arose, reporters' attention turned to Trump's refusal to concede.

"It would make it a lot easier if the president would participate," Biden said.

"I am hopeful that the President will be mildly more enlightened before we get to January 20th."

Just last week, at another Delaware press conference, Biden called the president an "embarrassment."

The next President of the United States told reporters that Trump is is not helping "his legacy" by refusing to concede.

"It's an embarrassment, quite frankly," Biden said.

"The only thing that, uh— how can I say this tactfully? I think it will not help the president's legacy."

Biden has started to use sharp critiques against the president as Trump's team refuse to formally begin preparations for the transition.

The Democrat also complained on Monday that Trump is not doing anything to pass a coronavirus stimulus package.

"The idea the president is still playing golf and not doing anything about it is beyond my comprehension," Biden said,.

"You'd at least think he'd want to go out on a positive note."
