[CBC뉴스] 조 바이든 대통령 당선자이 트럼프를 향해 정권 인수를 방해하고 있다고 비난했다.
지난 28일 조 바이든 대통령 당선자는 미국의 많은 보안기관들이 도널드 트럼프 대통령 하에서 ‘공백상태’가 되었고, 퇴임하는 행정부가 그의 인수위원회에 정보를 제공하지 못한 것은 "무책임"이라고 말했다.
바이든 부통령은 "현재 우리는 핵심 국가 안보 분야에서 퇴임하는 행정부로부터 필요한 모든 정보를 얻지 못하고 있다. 제가 보기에 그것은 여간 무책임한것이 아니다”라고 그는 덧붙였다.
공화당원인 트럼프는 패배를 인정하지 않았고 그의 행정부는 11 월 23 일 바이든과의 협력을 승인했다.
President-elect Joe Biden said on Monday (December 28) many of America's security agencies had been "hollowed out" under President Donald Trump and the lack of information being provided to his transition team by the outgoing administration was an "irresponsibility."
"We've encountered roadblocks from the political leadership at the Department of Defense and the Office of Management and Budget," Biden said after a meeting with his foreign policy team.
"Right now we just aren't getting all of the information that we need from the outgoing administration in key national security areas. It's nothing short, in my view, of irresponsibility," he added.
Biden also used the occasion to condemn a bombing that rocked Nashville, Tennessee on Christmas morning, killing the alleged perpetrator, Anthony Q. Warner.
"This bombing was a reminder of the destructive power the individual or a small group can muster and the need for continuing vigilance across the board," Biden said.
Biden beat Trump in the Nov. 3 election, but the Democrat's team only began meeting with administration officials in late November to coordinate the handover.
Trump, a Republican, has refused to concede defeat and his administration only authorized cooperation with Biden on Nov. 23.
Earlier this month, Biden's team said they had met resistance to their requests for information from some Pentagon officials.
The Pentagon pushed back against the Biden team's earlier complaints. A senior defense official last week said that the Pentagon had conducted 163 interviews and 181 requests for information and that it would continue to provide information and meetings.
But Biden reiterated those concerns on Monday, and said that the Trump administration had caused serious damage to many government agencies.
"The truth is, many of the agencies that are critical to our security have incurred enormous damage," he said. "Many of them have been hollowed out in personnel, capacity and in morale. In the policy processes that have atrophied or have been sidelined. In the despair of our alliances and the disrepair of those alliances."
Biden also said that he supports increasing the amount Americans receive in the new stimulus bill from $600 to $2,000.
On Sunday (December 27), Trump signed a $2.3 trillion pandemic aid and government spending package, passed the previous week, after threatening to block it unless lawmakers agreed to increase the payments to $2,000, a measure Democrats in Congress say they support.
