Ron Klain and President-elect Joe Biden

U.S. President-elect Joe Biden’s incoming chief of staff, Ron Klain on Sunday said the US Federal Government needs to sign off on transition team efforts this week.

He said this will enable Biden’s team to receive national security briefings and address COVID-19.

“What we really want to see this week … is the General Services Administration issue that ascertainment,” Ron Klain said on NBC News’ “Meet the Press.”

“Donald Trump’s Twitter feed doesn’t make Joe Biden president or not president. The American people did that,” he told NBC.

Trump’s tweet acknowledging Biden’s win – before later saying he did not concede – had no bearing on the actuality of the election, Klain added.
