“Biden Transition Team Prepping ‘At Full Speed’ For Day One”

“Former Vice President Joe Biden is readying his transition team to help stand up his administration if he prevails in the 2020 presidential race.

His transition team has set up a website, which went live yesterday. It's short on content, having only one webpage, but does include a statement that hints at what would be the Democratic nominee's priorities, including climate change, if he becomes president.

‘The American people will determine who will serve as the next President of the United States. Votes are still being counted in several states around the country,' says the website.

‘The crises facing the country are severe — from a pandemic to an economic recession, climate change to racial injustice — and the transition team will continue preparing at full speed so that the Biden-Harris Administration can hit the ground running on Day One.'”
