U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo claimed that the State Department began the process of transition of power from Donald Trump to President-elect Joe Biden. The General Services Administration approved the beginning of the process on Tuesday.
“Today we began the process to see what the GSA’s decision was, and will do everything that’s required by law. We’ll make this work,” Pompeo said as quoted by Reuters.
This means that Biden's team now will have the access to federal funds and the office to perform this transition until the politician's inauguration on January 20.
It is noted that the banner was hung by Greenpeace due to the refusal of Donald Trump to return to the Climate Agreement.
On November 22, Donald Trump stood against the Paris Agreement on climate change.
“To protect the American workers, I withdrew the U.S. from the unfair and unilateral Paris Climate Agreement that is unfair act for the United States,” Trump said.
