Trump tweet officially authorizes Biden transition

President Trump on Monday directed the General Services Administration to “do what needs to be done” — signaling cooperation with President-elect Joe Biden’s transition process even as he vowed to “keep up the good fight.”

“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,” Trump tweeted Monday evening.

“Our case STRONGLY continues, we will keep up the good fight, and I believe we will prevail!” he wrote across two tweets. “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.”

Biden’s official transition has been in limbo in the weeks since he was projected president-elect because the General Services Administration, of which Murphy is the administrator, had not formally signed off on the Democratic nominee’s victory through a process called “ascertainment.”

Murphy reportedly sent a letter to Biden’s team Monday afternoon signaling the process could move forward.

Trump’s move to allow the transition of power to proceed came not long after the Michigan Board of Canvassers certified its election results showing a Biden win, in another blow to Trump’s legal challenges and his attempts to delay certifications in key states.
