Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “Trump Holding ‘Routine’ Meeting with Michigan Lawmakers at White House: McEnany” – below is their description.
While members of President-Elect Joe Biden’s coronavirus task force are demanding answers from the Trump administration about plans for vaccine distribution, the White House is pushing back saying those plans are available in a public report. In the first press briefing since October 1st, press secretary Kayleigh McEnany told reporters that the White House was “not in the slightest” concerned that failing to work with the Biden team would slow down distribution of vaccines for the coronavirus. “This is publicly available, if the former vice president would like to read through it,” McEnany said holding up what she said was a playbook to distribute a vaccine. “There is a distribution plan in place, which is why you heard General Perna yesterday that within 24 hours of getting that EUA, the emergency use authorization, we will be able to distribute this all across the country.” Meanwhile, two Michigan state legislators are headed to the White House on Friday as President Donald Trump makes an extraordinary and sure-to-be futile attempt to block Biden’s victory in the battleground state and subvert the results of the 2020 presidential election. The state has yet to certify its results for Biden, who won Michigan by more than 154,000 votes, according to unofficial results. Trump and his allies have been trying to convince judges and lawmakers in the state to set aside the popular vote and swap in Republican-chosen electors. The president personally called two county canvass board officials earlier this week who had refused to certify the results in Wayne County, the state’s most populous county and one that overwhelmingly favored Biden. The two GOP officials eventually agreed to certify the results, but following Trump’s call, they later said they had second thoughts. McEnany said Trump’s meeting with the state legislators was “not an advocacy meeting” and insisted “he routinely meets with lawmakers from across the country.” But such meetings are in fact rare, particularly now as Trump has maintained a low-profile since his electoral loss to Biden. The Michigan effort is among multiple last-ditch tactics Trump and his allies are using to challenge his defeat. His team also has suggested in a legal challenge that Pennsylvania set aside the popular vote there and pressured county officials in Arizona to delay certifying vote tallies. At the White House, discussions were underway about extending an invite to Pennsylvania’s Republican legislative leadership as well.
