Reuters, U.S. Secretary of State Pompeo said on the 24th local time that the U.S. State Department has begun the process of regime transition. The day before, the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) informed Biden that the transfer of power could be officially started.
“Today we started the [transition] process, seeing what the GSA decision was and doing all the things that were legally required. We will do it. Pompeo said in an interview with Fox News.
Emily Murphy, director of the U.S. General Administration, informed former Vice President Biden and his team on the 23rd that the Trump administration was ready to officially start the regime transition process. Murphy said in the letter that the Trump administration is ready to start the transition process, during which Biden and his team will be able to use federal resources and services.
U.S. President Trump confirmed the news on social media late that night, and said that he would continue to fight for challenging the election results.
The Biden team subsequently issued a statement saying that they would begin to meet with federal government officials to discuss the response to the epidemic and to fully understand the national security interests of the United States and the work of various departments of the Trump administration.
