- I want to get your thoughts on the president's tweet over the weekend where he first seemed to acknowledge that you won. Then he said he won't concede. Then he said I won. How did you interpret that? And at the end of the day, do you want him to concede?

JOE BIDEN: I interpret that as Trumpingism. No change in his modus operandi. And I think the pressure will continue.

But look, I'm having a lot of meetings with world leaders on the telephone. I cannot get into negotiating with them about things that are going to be done, but they're calling with some degree of enthusiasm, everyone from the Holy Father to prime ministers across the globe.

And so we're moving along knowing what the outcome will be. And as I said earlier, and I probably shouldn't repeat it, but I find this more embarrassing for the country than debilitating for my ability to get started.
