WASHINGTON – Vice President Joe Biden said President-elect, Donald Trump Thursday to “grow”.
Biden rejected to be an Asset complaint on Twitter about how the Obama administration has handled the transition. The vice-president said “PBS NewsHour” in an interview: “Grow up, Donald. Grow up. It is time for an adult.”
Biden said of Trump: “You are the president. Do you have something to do. Show us what you’ve got.”
The vice-president also said that Trump as president will have a bill that the Congress and the public can then judge. He said it will be “a lot clearer what he is for and against” as soon as he is in the position of the council.
Biden also said that it is “dangerous” for the Asset to have in the public criticism of the U.S. intelligence community’s conclusion that Russia intervened in the elections in November. Biden said it was “absolutely useless” for a president not to have confidence in or listen to the intelligence services.
The vice-president said that it would be legitimate to ask the question of intelligence and ask for more details or disagree. But he said that is different than the Trump claims he knows more than the intelligence services.
Biden said that’s like saying: “I know more about physics than my professor.” He says that’s worrisome, but he supposes that Trump the behavior will change. He said that Trump is surrounding himself with “smart people” as a retired Marine Corps Gen. James Mattis, the billionaire businessman, the choice for the minister of defence.
