It has been an arduous couple of weeks since Joe Biden won the election. Donald Trump has been 'cooling his heels' when it comes to a transition, and it's made life for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris extra stressful.
On Monday, Emily Murphy, the admin of the General Services Administration (GSA), consented for the transition between current President Donald Trump and President-Elect Joe Biden to begin.
Murphy wrote a letter to Biden on Monday:
Donald Trump quickly addressed the announcement on Twitter.
Joe Biden's campaign also released a statement, saying that the decision is "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. In the days ahead, transition officials will begin meeting with federal officials to discuss the pandemic response, have a full accounting of our national security interests, and gain complete understanding of the Trump administration’s efforts to hollow out government agencies."
The move will allot Biden's team $6.3 million to help with the transition, along with more funding to assist in preparing his staff for the transition.
Murphy was hesitant to allow the transition to begin. She claimed she and her family received death threats because of the delay. She made her decision based on Trump's court losses and the vote certifications in many of the state Trump had lawsuits in. She determined that Biden was the "likely" winner of the election.
Here's why I am skeptical of this transition:
Donald Trump and his team have proven to be a nest of snakes. They lie, cheat, and steal, due to their irrational fear of losing. Also, the very last thing that Trump's team wants to do is anger Trump.
I have this sick feeling in the pit of my stomach that Trump's team is going to try and sabotage Biden's transition. They will provide him with fictitious intel, especially about coronavirus. They will destroy actual documents, pay people to stay quiet, and threaten anyone who doesn't comply. All Trump wants to do is sabotage Biden. He will never forgive the fact that he lost against Biden.
For the last few days, I've gone undercover on an ultra-conservative social media site. I looked at what members were saying about the transition, and all of them believe that Democrats, especially Biden, threatened Murphy and her family. Trump expressed the same sentiment.
I will say this, the ultra-conservatives are unraveling. Now that the transition is starting, and now that states are certifying their votes, the ultra-conservatives are worried that Trump will give up. Trump feeds on attention and praise. He's like a toddler in that respect.
His followers are either worried or full of rage. Trump will use this to inspire himself to pad the intel he gives to Biden.
I am hoping that I am wrong, but I don't think I am. Shit could get seriously scary the next few months.
