Biden prays Trump will continue cancer moonshot


Vice President Joe Biden said Monday it’s his “prayer” that the Trump administration will be committed and enthusiastic about the goal of ending cancer.  

“… I know those in the private sector, philanthropy, at academic institutions and non-profit organizations are going to continue to work no matter what the next administration does,” he said at the World Economic Forum’s annual meeting at the Swiss ski resort of Davos.

“There’s too much momentum here and this will include me as a private citizen,” he promised. 

Biden said he may not have the expertise, but he has the power to convene stakeholders and has been viewed as a “fair dealer.”

“I may even have the ability to occasionally shame so people move in directions that up to now there has been unwillingness to move, because of the culture that’s developed,” he said.

Biden, who lost a son to cancer last year, has led the White House “cancer moonshot” push since last January.
