President of United States, Donald Trump spoke publicly for the first time since Joe Biden was declared the winner of the presidential election six days ago on Friday. But again, he denied to acknowledge his defeat.
He spoke from the Rose Garden at the White House and delivered an update on the efforts of the coronavirus vaccine. He said that as soon as a COVID-19 vaccine is available in the month of April, he will withhold from the state of New York, where Governor Andrew Cuomo has been critical of the distribution plan of the administration.
But Donald Trump also glancingly acknowledged the possibility that he will no longer be a president by then, saying, time will tell. He said that this administration will not be going to a lockdown.
Hopefully, whatever happens in the future knows which administration will be he guess time will tell, but he can tell us this administration will not go to a lockdown. On Friday, the networks called Georgia for Biden, putting him at 306 electoral votes, while a hand recount was underway in the battleground state.

On Thursday, Biden was also called the winner of Arizona. The Trump campaign has continued to file lawsuits seeking to challenge the vote-counting procedures in several states, but many of those cases have been already dismissed and have not slowed the process of certification.
Trump left the podium without even taking any questions. President-elect Biden met with his COVID-19 advisors on Friday and again called on the Americans to wear masks, wash their hands, and practice social distancing.
Biden said in a statement that he is the president-elect, but he is not going to be the president until next year. He added that the crisis does not respect dates on the calendar, it is accelerating right now, and some urgent actions are needed today.
He said that the current administration needs to take urgent action now, starting with an acknowledgment of how serious the current situation is.
