2020 ELECTION/BIDEN TRANSITION/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: [Reporter: “Sir, what do you say to the Americans that are anxious over the fact that President Trump has yet to concede and what that might mean for the country?”]

“Well, I just think it’s an embarrassment, quite frankly. The only thing 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 that United States’ democratic institutions are viewed once again as being strong and endured.

But I think at the end of the day, it’s all going to come to fruition on January 20th, and between now and then my hope and expectation is that the American people do know and do understand that there has been a transition. Even among Republicans who are people who voted for the president, I understand the sense of loss. I get that.”
