US Vice President John Biden and Camala Harris arrive at their campaign event-Biden Transition-ss-featured

Without directly conceding, President Donald Trump tweeted approval for the Biden transition process to proceed. Before his tweet, the General Services Administration sent a letter to Biden’s team. GSA chief Emily Murphy informed them that the Trump administration is ready to start. In addition, they are making federal resources available for his transition.

Tweet of Approval

In a tweet, Trump gave his approval without acknowledging Biden won and he lost the elections. He tweeted: “I want to thank Emily Murphy at GSA for her steadfast dedication and loyalty to our Country. She has been harassed, threatened, and abused – and I do not want to see this happen to her, her family, or employees of GSA. Our case STRONGLY continues, we will keep up the good fight, and I believe we will prevail! Nevertheless, in the best interest of our Country, I am 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.” 

Instead of conceding, Trump said he supports “the best interest of our country.” He emphasized that his fight with Biden continues. But, he won’t hinder preparations for a transition.

Formal Transition Start

The Biden transition team issued a statement as well. It said: “Today’s decision is a needed 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 formally begin the transition process with federal agencies.” 

With the GSA signing off, Biden can now access classified information. This includes the Presidential Daily Brief, intelligence briefings, and coronavirus updates. The briefings help the incoming President get up to date on current events even before he starts work. Therefore, it helps ensure a smoother transition from one President to the next.

Two Weeks Ago

Previously, Murphy got flak from the public, who wanted the transition to start sooner. The main reason is that GSA acknowledgment releases $7 million in federal funding. On one hand, people are asking what’s holding her up. They pointed out that most mainstream media and even countries have accepted the win. Meanwhile, there were people that supported Murphy for remaining steadfast. 

Critics argued that Biden won the electoral college two weeks ago. They said instead of starting, the GSA opted to wait for more confirmation. As such, they held back a ministerial task of declaring the start of an official transition. By this time, even some Republicans wanted the transition to proceed earlier. Sen. Rob Portman of Ohio (R) wrote an opinion article in the Cincinnati Enquirer that the GSA should start now. This includes releasing funding and including Biden in intelligence and coronavirus briefings. As such, he wrote: “This is only prudent. There is no evidence as of now of any widespread fraud or irregularities that would change the result in any state.”

Meanwhile, other Republicans, such as ex-New Jersey governor Chris Christie, says Trump should stop and call it a day. Also,  Tennessee Senator Lamar Alexander said Trump should “put the country first and have a prompt and orderly transition to help the new administration succeed.” He added: “When you are in public life, people remember the last thing you do.”

Emily Murphy Defends Her Actions

In her letter to Biden, Murphy wrote that she was completely independent of her actions. Specifically, she denied that any official made any undue influence to give her approval. She wrote: “I have dedicated much of my adult life to public service, and I have always strived to do what is right. Please know that I came to my decision independently, based on the law and available facts. I was never directly or indirectly pressured by any Executive Branch official — including those who work at the White House or GSA — with regard to the substance or timing of my decision.” 

“To be clear, I did not receive any direction to delay my determination. I did, however, receive threats online, by phone, and by mail directed at my safety, my family, my staff, and even my pets in an effort to coerce me into making this determination prematurely. Even in the face of thousands of threats, I always remained committed to upholding the law,” she added. 

“Contrary to media reports and insinuations, my decision was not made out of fear or favoritism,” she added. “Instead, I strongly believe that the statute requires that the GSA Administrator ascertain, not impose, the apparent president-elect. Unfortunately, the statute provides no procedures or standards for this process, so I looked to precedent from prior elections involving legal challenges and incomplete counts.”

What does this mean for Trump? 

Trump’s tacit approval, plus senior Republicans’ pressure to accept the results, points to an eventual acceptance of the election results where Biden won. With the GSA approving the start of the presidential transition process, it means Trump and Republicans are coming to terms with a Biden win. However, they have avoided directly saying they have conceded. What does this ultimately mean?

By supporting the GSA's decision to start the transition process, has Trump accepted his defeat at the polls?

  • Avatar Wyzguy says:

    Did they steal it? Of course they stole it! Why shouldn’t they? Who’s gonna tell em they can’t? They’re corrupt & clever; we’re weak & stupid! When Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck & Sean Hannity are the smartest people in our room, ain’t nobody smart in the room! I don’t wanna be part of the weak & the stupid anymore! Was Trump any smarter than these morons were? He did a GREAT job running the country for his term but he did an embarrassingly stupid job running his “campaign” which needed to start on day-1 of his presidency, not day-1 of August, 2020! Several MASSIVE Trump weaknesses that doomed him to 4yrs: he surrounded himself w/too many weak & unreliable people, like Sessions, Fauci, Barr, etc, & apparently doesn’t actually know how to say: “YOU’RE FIRED”! He foolishly failed to adapt to the environment, sewer though it is, & believed that he could play at politics w/o actually becoming a politician! He failed to grow into the job & instead opted to put out fires w/gasoline, thereby alienating the very people, politicians, departments & power-brokers he needed to secure the other 1/2 of his run as the prez! He did lotsa stupid things, especially w/the TV media; the source of 100% of the average idiot’s understanding of the world, politically & otherwise! He made exactly zer0 friends there but chose not to take advantage of the 1 medium that was always guaranteed to be squarely in his corner from the get-go; TALK RADIO! Imagine if he’d had the wherewithal to TALK instead of tweet? We know he’s an honest man but that’s not a qualification of the job! The job minimally requires the fundamental intelligence to see & understand that he already owns the 40% on the right & has n0 chance of winning over the 40% on the left; both sides of whom would support Adolph Hitler over Jesus Christ if he carried their water! He never understood the entire “battle” was always for the hearts & minds of the “Mushy Middle” 20% who live comfortably clueless to all things, political or otherwise! This doesn’t only apply to the sheople that “vote”, but far more importantly to the people who wield political powers! There’s a new sheriff in town! You can either accept it & move forward with your lives & maybe effect changes from within the system as it exists or you can opt to remain bitter for what, the rest of your days? But the new order’s gonna suck?! Yeah, sure it’ll suck! But considering the old order sucked too, what have we really lost? Remember; governments at best, are necessary evils! What were you expecting, peaches & ice cream?! You don’t have to love it & you don’t have to like it! You do have to choose between accepting it OR remaining bitter, depressed & overwhelmed by the disappointmenting news that changes are coming! More than half of the world’s population lives under socialism! The BIGGEST difference between them & us is that they’ve adapted to it already & we’re only at the beginning of our transition! If you’ll remember that the only thing constant is change, it might make it easier to swallow than believing the sky is falling! There are benefits to the changes coming our way! Thank God (if you believe in Him?) that the people running the show understand well the GREATEST THREAT TO MANKIND’S WELLBEING IS TOO MANY MEN (& WOMEN)! It took the entirity of human history to grossly over-populate the earth & well short of my lifetime to nearly quadruple what was already TOO DAMNED MANY PEOPLE in the 1st place! Don’t you “Pro-Life” idiots realize that you glommed onto the absolute worst possible cause you could have chosen?! It’s a numbers game w/you people! The more, the merrier! Quality of life be damned! Let’s work hard at “creating” more unnecessary, unwanted, unneeded, unlikely to ever be more than the absolute exacerbation of the world’s GREATEST PROBLEM! Does anybody on your bandwagon understand that the only thing mankind appears to do well is create WARFARE to rid us of ourselves?! Does this “quantity” strategy sound like a good plan to any of you?! Is there a solitary problem facing humanity that isn’t made worse w/more & better w/less humanity?! Are you really stupid enough to believe that the Earth’s resources are infinite?! Have any of you ever considered that the quality of the lives already in existence is a FLATLY SUPERIOR CONCERN to any potential future lives not yet procreated?! Your stupidity is eqally displayed on the other end of the TOO DAMNED MANY PEOPLE problem as well! You’re just as adamantly opposed to physician-assisted suicide, euthanasia to end sever deformities,etc. any/all other intelligent solutions to our extremely SMALL & OVER-POPULATED PLANET!
    All things considered, I’m glad that the world is being guided in an infinitely better direction than any of you people could ever possibly take it!

    View “The Hunger Games” movie. It will inform you of what is coming.
    Simply put; Evil vs good! This has been the conflict since the beginning of time.

    My wish during this season is to all americans that they have a HAPPY THANKSGIVING DAY.
    It is time,as always,to be grateful that we have a democracy that has been running for 244 years.
    It will continue because GOD is in control of all things and that this conflict will demonstrate how vicious the democratic party has been. Remember, it has it roots to the KKK and president Johnson said ” he will have them voting democratic for the next 200 years”. President Trump is a gift from GOD who is willing to speak up for the freedom we have and prevent the loss of our democracy to the socialist and dictators.
    I suggest those in power that advocate socialist, should live in Venezuela, North Korea, Communist China and Russia.
    The problem is the public schools are not teaching American history and world history the way it was taught when I was in school.
    God bless everyone and please enjoy the Thanksgiving day with the ones you love.

  • Avatar Carol Rogan says:

    This election is about good vs evil no doubt about it. We the People that voted for Trump have every right to be angry. Voter Fraud is not really in question because all but a few really know the election was nothing more that cheating in every way for Dems back in power. They kicked and screamed for 4 years and plotted this stolen elysll this time! Trump campaigned is every rally he held and every moment he was in front of a crowd! This isn’t his fault. They hate him because he is the outsider business man that owes nothing to any politician.
    Trump rallies were like none ever before by crowd size and exuberance.
    74 million voted for Trump! That’s HUGE!! Dems+ others cheating were stunned by the masses voting for Trump. In their panic, they made many mistakes in size, timing, counting, and foreign countries flipping votes one way from Trump to Biden. They got sloppy, made huge mistakes and brazenly were observed by thousands of witnesses. They WERE SLOPPY!! God is on the side of good not evil. God will act , we don’t know when but We The People must turn our anger and disillusionment and patriots must focus and turn these emotions in ONE DIRECTION. PRAY FOR JUSTICE, BACK TRUMP, and EVER GIVE UP. 74 million voters is not a drop in the bucket. Trust in truth. Trust in God’s plan and focus on being kind to each other. NEVER FORGET! HAVE FAITH! We will have our day. It may be soon. STAY THE COURSE AND STAY ON TASK. TURN OUR ENERGY ON keeping our freedom, fighting socialism, use our VOICES!’ DO THE RIGHT THING! PRSY and PRAY SOME MORE!! NEVER SAY DIE!!!
