Joe Biden Says Donald Trump Is An 'Embarrassment' For Not Conceding US Election Defeat

Joe Biden hasn't minced his words when describing Donald Trump's behaviour post-US Election.

Trump says he will be using every trick in the book to legally challenge some of the results where he lost in the 2020 ballot.

He and his team have been levelling allegations of voter fraud, improper counting and issues with mail-in votes however haven't provided any evidence to back up their claims.

While some Republicans continue to cling onto fighting every last inch, the President-elect is carrying on with the job.

During a press conference in Delaware, Joe Biden said: "We have already started the transition, we are well under way. [His behaviour] does not change the dynamic in what we're able to do."

When asked on his thoughts about Donald Trump's refusal to concede the election, the Democratic candidate replied saying: "I think it's an embarrassment. How can I say this tactfully? I think it will not help the president's legacy.

"We are going to be moving along in a consistent manner, putting our administration together in the White House, reviewing who we're going to pick for our cabinet positions, and nothing is going to stop that."

Joe Biden was declared the projected winner of the 2020 US Election on the weekend after he secured 290 electoral college votes, 20 more than needed to secure the White House. Donald Trump notched 214 electoral college votes.

However, it appears he and his remaining loyal supporters are steaming ahead with challenging the election. US Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, even outlandishly suggested Trump actually won the ballot.

The nation's top diplomat said during a State Department news conference: "There will be a smooth transition to a second Trump administration.

"We're going to count all the votes. The world should have every confidence that the transition necessary to make sure that the State Department is functional today, successful today and successful when the president who's in office on January 20."

There still hasn't been any concrete evidence that anything nefarious went on in the November 3 election on a widespread scale that could influence the result.

Some of Trump's closest confidantes, like Vice President Mike Pence, have also yet to concede the election and congratulate Joe Biden on his win. Staunch Republicans are tipped to drag these legal challenges out for weeks as they try to find evidence to back up their unfounded claims.
