The Trump administration has granted permission to begin the transition of power process to President-elect Joe Biden.
In a letter to President-elect Joe Biden on Sunday, the head of General Services Administration Emily Murphy announced that the Trump administration is ready to begin the formal transition process and make post-election resources available.
The move comes after Democrats called on Murphy to testify in the House about not ascertaining Joe Biden’s victory.
President Donald Trump says he is “recommending that Emily and her team do what needs to be done with regard to initial protocols, and have told my team to do the same.”
“The GSA Administrator has ascertained President-elect Joe Biden and vice President elect Kamala Harris as the apparent winners of the election, providing the incoming Administration with the resources and support necessary to carry out a smooth and peaceful transfer of power,” Joe Biden’s executive transitions director Yohannes Abraham said in a statement. “Today’s decision is a need did step to begin tackling the challenges facing our nation, including getting the pandemic under control and our economy back on track. This final decision is a definitive administrative action to formerly begin the transition process with federal agencies. In the days ahead, transition officials will begin meeting with federal officials to discuss the pandemic response, have a full accounting of our nation security interest, and gain complete understanding of the Trump administration‘s efforts to hollow out government agencies.”
President Donald Trump recommended ‘that Emily and her team do what needs to be done with regard to initial protocols.’ President Trump also stated that his case to prove voter fraud played a part in the 2020 election is still going strong.
