[NFA] President-elect Joe Biden pleaded with Americans on Wednesday to take steps to remain safe over the Thanksgiving holiday as COVID-19 cases soar, while President Donald Trump repeated his debunked claims that the election had been stolen from him.

As of Thursday, according to data from Johns Hopkins University, there were more than 12.8 million cases reported in the United States and at least 262,000 people have died from the novel coronavirus since mid-March.

Trump's annual Thanksgiving proclamation, on the other hand, called for people to get together and celebrate the holiday.

"I encourage all Americans to gather, in homes and places of worship, to offer a prayer of thanks to God for our many blessings," the president's proclamation read.

Trump also acknowledged those who can't be with their families, but stated it includes "the brave American patriots of our Armed Forces who selflessly defend our sacred liberty at home and abroad."

He continued, "And we pause to remember the sacrifices of our law enforcement personnel and first responders. We are deeply grateful for all those who remain on watch over the holidays and keep us safe as we celebrate and give thanks for the blessings in our lives."

Both Trump and Biden thanked frontline workers, health-care providers and educators for their service throughout the pandemic in their Thanksgiving messages.

The president was initially going to travel to Palm Beach, Florida, for the holiday but is remaining at the White House instead. Stephanie Grisham, who serves as Melania Trump's spokeswoman, tweeted last week that Trump and the first lady "will be celebrating the Thanksgiving holiday at the @WhiteHouse this year."

Biden said Wednesday he's forgoing his traditional large family gathering and spending the holiday instead with just his wife, daughter and son-in-law at their vacation home in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware.
