You want to know the latest on the vote counting, don’t you?
In Pennsylvania, Biden’s lead is now 45,727. He’s won 49.8% of the vote compared to Trump’s 49.1%.
Here’s some of that Washington Post report that the Trump administration is not playing ball already when it comes to the peaceful transition of power to the Biden-Harris team:
A Trump administration appointee is refusing to sign a letter allowing Joe Biden’s transition team to formally begin its work this week, in another sign the incumbent president has not acknowledged Biden’s victory and could disrupt the transfer of power.
The administrator of the General Services Administration, the low-profile agency in charge of federal buildings, has a little-known role when a new president is elected: to sign paperwork officially turning over millions of dollars, as well as give access to government officials, office space in agencies and equipment authorized for the taxpayer-funded transition teams of the winner.
