Trump gives green light to transfer of power to Biden, but...

Until recently, the government refused to recognize Biden’s election victory, leaving the Democrat with no access to federal government resources.

Biden’s transition team says it will soon organize meetings between the incoming president and federal government officials about the corona epidemic and national security. Until now, Biden has mostly had to deal with unofficial briefings and has no access to relevant classified information. Biden’s transition team calls the GSA’s decision a crucial event for a good and peaceful transfer of power.

Official Murphy, appointed by President , said she had waited a long time to sign the transfer papers because she first wanted to be “assured” of Biden’s election victory. She denies having been pressured to do so. “I take this role seriously and, due to recent developments around litigation and the certification of election results, I am sending you this letter today to make these resources and services available to you,” GSA Chief Murphy wrote to Biden.

Support from Trump

President Donald Trump also says in a tweet that he has given Murphy permission to sign the transfer papers. According to him she was so pressured and threatened that he was forced to do so “in the interest of the country”. He does indicate that the legal battle over the election results is not over as far as he is concerned, but the tweet is a first open signal that Trump may recognize his election defeat.

On Twitter, Murphy was praised by President Donald Trump. She and her team must “do what needs to be done”, according to Trump. The president also writes that he gave the same instruction to his own team. The GSA’s green light for the transfer of power is of great practical importance to Biden. That service should give the election winner’s team access to things like office space, equipment and money to pay salaries. Millions of dollars are involved.

Biden also previously complained that the lack of a transfer of power jeopardized the corona approach of his future government. “More people could die if we don’t coordinate,” Biden said on issues such as getting Covid-19 vaccines to be distributed to Americans as soon as possible.
