Since President-elect Joe Biden’s victory earlier this month, President Donald Trump has refused to concede and continues to make baseless claims of voter fraud –– pushing election lawsuit battles across the country, further challenging the validity of the results.
But the conversation changed last week when Biden’s transition to power officially kicked off. Trump’s administration acknowledged Biden’s win, granting the new administration access to intelligence briefings and other government services to allow for a smooth transition.
Several states have also certified their election results this week, including a few battlegrounds. While some states are still approaching deadlines to certify results, all results must be certified before the Electoral College meets Dec. 14. Challenges to any results must also be resolved by Dec. 8.
Emily Murphy, the head of the General Services Administration, announced Monday that the Trump administration formally recognized that Biden won this year’s election, signaling the start of the transition process for the Biden administration.
The GSA, which is an independent U.S. government agency, mainly works behind the scenes to support other federal agencies or departments. When it comes down to the transition of power between the outgoing president and incoming president-elect, the GSA plays a crucial role in providing the new administration’s transition team with office space and other resources needed to allow for a smooth transition.
