Fox Host Urges Trump To Work With Biden Transition Team: ‘It’s In The Country’s Best Interest’


Brian Kilmeade, one of the hosts of “Fox and Friends,” on Wednesday morning called on President Donald Trump to finally begin teaming up with President-elect Joe Biden even as Trump refuses to acknowledge his rival’s decisive electoral victory.

“I think it’s in the country’s best interest if he starts coordinating on the virus and starts coordinating with security with the Biden team and just brief them,” Kilmeade said during the show.

The Fox News host asserted that the two men “need to coordinate on the transportation and implementation” of the COVID-19 vaccine.

“And [Biden] will see how thorough the planning has been so we don’t drop the ball in a little while,” he added.

Kilmeade’s remarks join the small but growing chorus of Trump allies who have been urging the President, who’s been blocking Biden’s transition efforts and trying to undo the election with bogus lawsuits, to at least brief the President-elect on the administration’s operations.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
