Donald Trump lost the election three weeks ago and he has yet to concede. But it appears that he is starting to accept the reality.
On Tuesday, a White House official told CNN that President-elect Joe Biden will finally be given approval by the White House to receive the president’s daily briefing.
On Monday, President Donald J. Trump signaled his support for a transition to the new administration for the first time, giving formal notice to the General Services Administration that it was approved to proceed.
“I want to thank Emily Murphy at GSA for her steadfast dedication and loyalty to our Country [sic]. 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. “Our case STRONGLY continues, we will keep up the good fight, and I believe we will prevail!”
Trump continued, “Nevertheless, in the best interest of our Country [sic], I am recommending that Emily and her team do what needs to be done with regard to initial protocols, and I have told my team to do the same.”
It is crucial for a president-elect to be given the daily intelligence briefings shortly after winning the election. If not, that could pose a danger to national security.
