WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President-elect Joe Biden’s promise to end U.S. fossil fuel subsidies worth billions of dollars a year for drillers and miners could be hard to keep due to resistance from lawmakers in a narrowly divided Congress, including from within his own party. Biden has said axing fossil fuel subsidies will generate money to help pay for his broader $2 trillion climate plan. It would help establish the United States as a global leader on climate, potentially helping convince other big emitters to axe fossil fuel subsidies. Estimates of the value of fossil fuel subsidies, which mainly take the form of tax breaks, vary. Biden and Congress will be under pressure to reduce the federal deficit by cutting such tax breaks.

(Reuters) - U.S. President-elect Joe Biden will formally introduce his top economic policy advisers on Tuesday as his administration prepares to take power amid a slowing economic recovery hampered by the resurgent coronavirus pandemic. FILE PHOTO: U.S. President-elect Joe Biden delivers a pre-Thanksgiving speech at his transition headquarters in Wilmington, Delaware, U.S., November 25, 2020. The advisers have all expressed support for government stimulus to maximize employment, reduce economic inequality and help women and minorities, who have been disproportionately hurt by the economic downturn. The transition to a Biden administration has proceeded despite Republican President Donald Trump’s false claims that he lost the election as a result of voter fraud. Rouse would be the first Black woman to lead the Council of Economic Advisers, which advises the president on economic policy; Tanden would be the first woman of color to run the OMB; and Yellen would be the first female Treasury secretary.

U.S. President-elect Joe Biden delivers a pre-Thanksgiving speech at his transition headquarters in Wilmington, Delaware, U.S., November 25, 2020.

REUTERS/Joshua RobertsNEW YORK (Reuters) - The recount of presidential ballots in Wisconsin’s two largest counties finished on Sunday, confirming that Democratic President-elect Joe Biden defeated President Donald Trump in the key swing state by more than 20,000 votes. Dane County finished its recount on Sunday, according to the county clerk, a few days after Milwaukee County finished its. Each recount produced little change in the final breakdown of the more than 800,000 ballots cast in the state. In the end, Biden’s lead over Trump in Wisconsin grew by 87 votes.

Trump’s team was dealt another blow with the completion on Sunday of recounts in Wisconsin’s two largest counties that confirmed Biden won the hotly contested state by more than 20,000 votes. Trump campaign attorney Jenna Ellis said the recounts “revealed serious issues regarding the legality of ballots cast,” without elaborating or providing evidence. The words of President Trump are not quite as significant.”Trump used his Fox News interview to repeat unsubstantiated allegations of widespread electoral fraud. “The problem is it’s hard to get it to the Supreme Court,” Trump said. Biden won the presidential election with 306 Electoral College votes - many more than the 270 required - to Trump’s 232.

REUTERS/Joshua RobertsLOS ANGELES (Reuters) - A recount in Wisconsin’s largest county demanded by Republican President Donald Trump’s election campaign ended Friday with Democratic President-elect Joe Biden gaining votes. After the recount in Milwaukee County, Biden had a net gain of 132 votes, out of nearly 460,000 cast. Trump’s campaign had demanded recounts in two of Wisconsin’s most populous and Democratic-leaning counties, after losing Wisconsin to Biden by over 20,000 votes. The two recounts will cost the Trump campaign $3 million. After the recount ended, Milwaukee County Clerk George Christenson said: “The recount demonstrates what we already know: that elections in Milwaukee County are fair, transparent, accurate and secure.”The Trump campaign is still expected to mount a legal challenge to the overall result in Wisconsin, but time is running out.

Transition officials downplayed the impact of the three-week delay in formally beginning the transition, and dismissed President Donald Trump’s continued efforts to cast doubt on the results as a “sideshow.”Biden was expected to receive his first presidential daily intelligence briefing on Monday, said Bedingfield. “On the national security and foreign policy side, agency review team leads have reached out to their assigned agencies within hours of ascertainment on Monday night, and nearly all have had initial contact with their points of contact,” said Psaki.
