WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) - President-elect Joe Biden is calling on Congress to enact billions of dollars in emergency COVID-19 assistance before year’s end.

Biden transition aide Jen Psaki warned Friday that “there's no more room for delay.”

Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris met in Delaware with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer.

Biden told the top congressional Democrats: “In my Oval Office, mi casa, you casa.” Pelosi said at an earlier news conference that she and Schumer would be talking with Biden about “the urgency of crushing the virus,” as well as how to use the lame-duck session of Congress, legislation on keeping the government funded and COVID-19 relief.
