Joe Biden has urged Donald Trump to “grow up”, amid an ongoing row over the president-elect publicly doubting US intelligence agencies.
The 74-year-old vice-president, in an interview with PBS Newshour, was responding to a question about Trump’s notorious use of Twitter.
The president-elect, 70, recently tweeted about FBI findings that Russia was behind the hack of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) amid suggestions it had tipped the scales of the presidential election in Trump’s favor.
“Time to be an adult,” he continued. “You’re president. You’ve got to do something. Show us what you have.”
The vice-president also commented on Trump’s criticisms of the intelligence agencies, calling it “worrisome” and “absolutely mindless”.
“For a president not to have confidence in, not to be prepared to listen to, the myriad intelligence agencies, from defense intelligence to the CIA, is absolutely mindless,” he said.
He added that the intelligence community found “overwhelming evidence” that “Russia did engage in an effort to impact” the US election.
