The president-elect will host Democratic Congressional leaders Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer to discuss COVID relief, as cases hit another record high and hospitals are reaching capacity.

President-elect Biden is warning of the dangerous message President Trump and his campaign are sending to the American people.

“I think they’re witnessing incredible irresponsibility, incredibly damaging messages being sent to the rest of the world about how democracy functions,” he said.
