President Trump may not yet have recognized Joe Biden’s victory, but the Democratic president-elect has already begun the work of the transition to the White House, kicking off a fierce competition for jobs in the new administration.
Joe Biden’s campaign has been adamant that they’ve followed coronavirus mitigation efforts for months and that they’ve been transparent with reporters, in contrast to the Trump administration.
The campaigns of both Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders and former South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg touted unverified, internal numbers in Iowa’s Democratic caucuses early Tuesday morning, after technical issues delayed the official results.
President Trump announced in a tweet on Tuesday that he had asked his national security adviser, John Bolton, to resign. Sources say the departure was due to disagreements and suspicions that Bolton was involved in leaks. The shocking announcement came less than two hours before Bolton was set to participate in a press briefing at the White House with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin.
