Trump's National Security Advisor, Robert O'Brien, promised Joe Biden to ensure a smooth and professional transition.
The New York Times reported:
"Look, if the Biden Harris ticket is determined to be the winner – and obviously it now looks like it – we will have a very professional transition from the National Security Council," said O'Brien.
"When there's a new administration, they deserve some time to implement their policies," O & # 39; Brien said during a talk recorded last week and streamed Monday at a conference hosted by the Center for Strategic and International Studies . "And when we find ourselves in a situation in which we are not going into a second term for Trump. I think the people I'm sitting in in the White House would like to see if it's a different outcome, it's going to be a professional transition – there's no question about it, "he said.
O'Brien's comments represent the first admission of reality from a senior figure within the Trump administration. It is a shame that O'Brien's comments are timely, as the commitment to peaceful transfer of power is a given in previous elections was.
Trump tries to sabotage Biden while feeding his own ego by denying the incoming administration the ability to start the race. One of the under-discussed elements of the Trump presidency was how he ventured into failure by not taking the president's transition seriously.
Joe Biden is ready to go to work, but aching loser Trump is putting America behind his ego even during a pandemic and economic collapse.
The cracks form in Trump's rejection as the reality of defeat creeps into the administration.
