Vice-President Joe Biden tells Donald Trump to ‘grow up’ over hacking report

US Vice-President Joe Biden has told president elect Donald Trump to “grow up” as he criticized his attacks on the intelligence community.

Joe Biden, was speaking after Mr Trump cast more doubts on allegations Russia meddled in the presidential election.

He went on to add that it was “absolutely mindless” for the president -elect not to have faith in intelligence agencies. Biden said to Trump: “You’re president. You’ve got to do something. Show us what you have.”

The vice-president also said that Trump as president will have to propose legislation that Congress and the public can then assess. He said that it’ll be “much clearer what he’s for and against” once he’s in the position of governing.

The vice president said it would be legitimate to question intelligence and ask for more detail or disagree. But he said that’s different than Trump claiming he knows more than the intelligence agencies.

Biden said that’s like saying, “I know more about physics than my professor.” He says that’s worrisome, but he assumes Trump’s behavior will change.
