Asked if he takes it “personally” that so many Republicans have yet to acknowledge his electoral victory, Biden said that he understands they are in a “tough spot.” Speaking specifically about Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), he added, “Lindsey’s been a personal disappointment because I was a personal friend of his,” before insisting that he will be willing to work with Republican lawmakers once Trump finally leaves office next month.

Biden even extended an olive branch of sorts to President Trump, saying “what he’s done getting the vaccine moving has been positive.” But, he then quickly added, “By and large, he has been a president who’s decided that the way he succeeds is by dividing us.”
