Trump appears to hint for first time that Biden could succeed him

Since President Joe Biden was projected to win the election, many Republican lawmakers have yet to acknowledge it.

Trump, who has refused to concede he lost the election, was speaking at a briefing at the White House on the Covid-19 pandemic.

"It is one more step in delegitimizing not just the incoming Biden administration, but democracy generally", Obama said.

USA networks projected on Friday that Biden won the state of Georgia, giving him 306 votes in the Electoral College that determines the White House victor.

As states impose new restrictions in the face of rising caseloads, Trump said there will be no lockdown but asked all Americans to remain "vigilant".

In a press conference that was characteristically heavy on braggadocio and light on detail, Trump said he expected an emergency use authorisation for Pfizer's vaccine "extremely soon".

"Any speculation about what Joe Biden might do, I think, is moot at this point", the White House trade advisor added in response to a question about whether Biden might take action to reverse certain executive orders signed by Trump.

The incumbent USA president predicted a Covid-19 vaccine developed by Pfizer and BioNTech, which the companies have said is 90 percent effective in trials so far, would receive emergency approval "extremely soon".

"We are moving forward here at the White House under the assumption that there will be a second Trump term", he said. "I guess time will tell".

"While we are not there yet, we are close to the objective" to having a vaccine ready for deployment by the end of 2020, he said.

On Friday, Trump tweeted thanks to supporters backing his claim that the "Election was Rigged" and said he might "stop by and say hello" at rallies planned in Washington on Saturday.

"The sooner we can get our transition experts into meetings with the folks who are planning the vaccination campaign, the more seamless", he said.
