Washington : The US President-elect Joe Biden has claimed the nation is dealing with four historic crisis at once and his team is working hard to tackle the challenges in a time bound manner.

"From COVID-19 and the economy to climate change and racial justice -- our nation is facing four historic crises at once. And come January, there will be no time to waste. That's why my team and I are hard at work preparing to take action on day one," Joe Biden tweeted.

Soon after Joe Biden's comment, President Donald Trump signed trillion-dollar coronavirus relief and government spending bill, said a news report.

On Saturday, Joe Biden had accused Donald Trump of "abdicating responsibility" and had pressed the outgoing President to immediately sign the COVID-19 relief bill that was pending.

"It is the day after Christmas, and millions of families don't know if they'll be able to make ends meet because of President Donald Trump's refusal to sign an economic relief bill approved by Congress with an overwhelming and bipartisan majority," Joe Biden said in a statement.

The United States is the worst affected country from coronavirus with 19,107,675 officially registered positive cases. The country's deaths stands at 333,069.
