President Donald Trump has accepted a formal transition to take over President-elect Joe Biden.
He said the federal agency that oversees the broadcast must “do what needs to be done”, although he has vowed to continue to dispute his defeat in the election.
The General Services Administration (GSA) said it recognized Joe Biden as the “clear winner.”
This happened when Joe Biden’s victory in Michigan was officially certified, a serious blow to President Trump.
The GSA announcement means that the president-elect already has access to the best security briefings, office space and government officials as he prepares to take office on January 20th.
Joe Biden’s transition website has already been changed to a state domain. He will start announcing the people he wants in the best jobs in his office on November 24.
Biden’s team welcomed the start of the transition process as the Democratic president-elect prepared to take the oath.
The statement said: “Today’s solution is a necessary step to start tackling the challenges facing our nation, including tackling the pandemic and getting our economy back on track.”
Earlier, Joe Biden revealed his nominations for his foreign policy and national security team, consisting of old colleagues from his years in the Obama administration.

Joe Biden will appoint Anthony Blinken as secretary of state and John Kerry as climate envoy, while Janet Yellen is advised to be the first female US Treasury Secretary.
The list of selected candidates is before the official announcement on November 24. Most appointments will require confirmation from the Senate.
President Trump tweeted when the GSA, which has been formally tasked with officially changing the president, informed the Biden camp that the transition process would begin.
GSA Administrator Emily Murphy said she was providing $ 6.3 million to the president-elect.
President Trump said: “In the best interest of our country, I recommend that Emily and her team do what needs to be done with regard to the initial protocols, and I have told my team to do the same.”
However, Donald Trump did not back down and continued to repeat unfounded allegations of corruption, promising to continue the “good fight”. It is worth noting that Donald Trump should not recognize Joe Biden to be sworn in as the 46th president of the United States.
