The US is celebrating Thanksgiving at a time of widespread coronavirus restrictions and with the fallout of the presidential election continuing.
Many have travelled to see family members despite being discouraged to do so as virus cases continue to rise.
President Donald Trump is continuing to contest president-elect Joe Biden’s win in the election although a formal transition process has now been initiated.
Thanksgiving has always been a special time for the Biden family. And while I know this isn’t the way many of us hoped to spend the holiday, the small act of staying home is a gift to our fellow Americans. pic.twitter.com/4mHOEFIcjV— Joe Biden (@JoeBiden) November 26, 2020
Like families across America, our Thanksgiving looks different this year. But I am incredibly grateful for the ability to stay virtually connected to our loved ones so we can get this virus under control.— Kamala Harris (@KamalaHarris) November 26, 2020
From @DouglasEmhoff and I, have a safe and happy Thanksgiving. pic.twitter.com/3WhQx6dCaU
