Cedric Richmond on Government Reform



Let's be frank with American people about coronavirus

We met with Operation Warp Speed, and we're getting up to date, but we still have more information to get from them and more information about their distribution plan. The one thing about President-elect Biden is that he is honest and he's transparent. What we don't want to do is mislead the American public - overpromise and under deliver. We are being as cautious as we can in our estimates of numbers to make sure that we are being frank and honest with the American people.
