President-elect Biden preparing for first days in office despite Trump denials

Description:

But Biden is still moving forward with plans to deal with the pandemic, economy, immigration and climate change. CBS News' Michael George reports on the latest, and then CBS News correspondent Nikole Killion joins CBSN's Lana Zak to discuss where things stand.
