GSA releases presidential transition funds

The General Services Administration notified president-elect Joe Biden yesterday that it will make post-election transition resources available, citing “recent developments involving legal challenges and certifications of election results” (source). The decision does not mark a concession by the Trump campaign or a certification of election results, but makes funding and other resources available to assist with a transition. President Trump said (via tweet) that he recommended that the GSA “do what needs to be done with regard to initial protocols,” while noting that his campaign will continue its ongoing legal challenges.

Extra: Meanwhile, Biden announced several individuals that he plans to nominate for high-ranking administration and Cabinet positions yesterday (including Secretary of State, National Security Advisor, and a special envoy on climate), with additional announcements expected for this week.
