Biden and Harris are to be sworn into office a little after noon eastern Wednesday.

Trump acknowledged that the COVID-19 pandemic has been a challenge, and paid respet “to the incredible people and families who suffered so gravely from the China virus. It was a horrible thing that was put into the world.”

“What we’ve done has been amazing by any standard,” he said.
