Vice President Pence on Tuesday assured governors there would be a smooth transition into the Biden administration during his final conference call with state leaders as head of the coronavirus task force.
Pence acknowledged to governors – more than two months after President-elect Joe BidenJoe BidenCapitol Police confirm investigation into some officers' behavior during riot GOP lawmakers told Trump takes some responsibility for Capitol riot Director of Army Staff disputes Capitol Police chief account of National Guard deployment MORE was declared the winner of the 2020 presidential election – that the Trump administration was coming to an end.
The vice president called it one of the greatest honors of his life to play "some small role" in managing the pandemic response, according to a source on the call, and promised he was committed to a "seamless transition."
The comments come as the incoming Biden administration faces formidable challenges in getting a raging pandemic under control, and after Pence and other Trump administration officials went weeks without conceding the election, complicating efforts to set up a new government.
Biden is likely to take office without a single Cabinet official confirmed. That lag could hinder his ability to fulfill his promise to vaccinate 100 million Americans in his first 100 days in office, and to return children to in-person learning in that time.
