Joe Biden says his incoming administration is being obstructed by the Trump White House as the transition team hits roadblocks from the “political leadership” of national security agencies.

Delivering remarks after being briefed from his security and foreign policy teams, Mr Biden said they have encountered obstruction from both the Department of Defence and the Office of Management and Budget.

Donald Trump has signed a $900 billion pandemic relief package, ending days of drama over his refusal to accept the bipartisan deal that will deliver long-sought cash to businesses and individuals and avert a federal government shutdown.

The signing on Sunday, at his private club in Florida came amid escalating criticism over his eleventh-hour demands for larger, $2,000 relief checks and scaled-back spending even though the bill had already passed the House and Senate by wide margins.

Meanwhile, the New York Post, a staunch supporter of the president’s, said in an editorial it was time for Mr Trump to end his “ruinous” attempts to overturn the election.

In a last ditch effort to overturn the results of the election, Texas Republican Louie Gohmert is suing Vice President Mike Pence in his official capacity to give him the capacity to appoint pro-Trump electors rather than those elected by the public.
