Biden claims Republicans are "intimidated" by Trump
Since various media outlets declared Biden the winner over the weekend, many Republicans have refused to congratulate the Democrat as the winner, and Trump is preparing to fight this in court. Biden claimed today that these Republican lawmakers are only intimidated by Trump and, of course, do not provide any evidence to back it up.
"I think the entire Republican Party, with a few notable exceptions, has been enabled to be easily intimidated by the sitting president," he said.
