Former White House officials urge Trump administration to commencement ‘post-election transition process’
The call from the Centre for Presidential Transition advisory board comes as the General Services Administration has yet to formally recognise Joe Biden as the president-elect
Washington: A bipartisan group from the last three White Houses is urging the Trump administration to move forward “to immediately begin the post-election transition process".
The call from the Centre for Presidential Transition advisory board comes as the General Services Administration has yet to formally recognise Democrat Joe Biden as the president-elect. That's a necessary move to free up money for the transition and clear the way for Biden's team to begin putting in place the transition process at agencies.
“This was a hard-fought campaign, but history is replete with examples of presidents who emerged from such campaigns to graciously assist their successors,” members of the advisory board said in a statement.
The statement was signed by Bush White House chief of staff Josh Bolten and Health and Human Services secretary Michael Leavitt as well as Bill Clinton-era chief of staff Thomas “Mack” McLarty and Obama Commerce Secretary Penny Pritzker.
