US President Donald Trump To Return To Washington Early

President Donald Trump is expected to return to Washington due to the ahead of a planned interruption by Republicans when Congress meets next week to certify President-elect Joe Biden’s win.

As per CNN’s report, trump’s return to Washington is much earlier than expected. Trump will now leave for Palm Beach before his annual New Year’s Eve party. Although the guests had already assembled at his south Florida club and were told Trump would be there. The President enjoys arriving on the red carpet in front of the press and his friends but capers the event altogether this year, which turns out to be unusual.

In the President’s daily public schedule, the White House stated the President and first lady Melania Trump would leave Florida at 11 a.m. ET to return to the White House.

The report further informed that he discovered Vice President Mike Pence’s role in the Capitol Hill certification proceedings before leaving for Palm Beach, frequently conventional. As he flew to Florida for his vacation, Trump retweeted a call from one of his supporters for Pence to refuse to ratify the Electoral College count on January 6.

While in Florida, Trump has frequently raised the January 6 date with Congress members and other associates. He persuaded senators on whether they would go along with House conservatives in dissenting to the results.

Before his vacation, sources say Trump brought the matter up to the vice president and confused why Pence can’t overturn the election results on January 6. Pence and White House aides have tried to explain that his role is more of a formality and cannot unilaterally reject the Electoral College votes.

‘Enormous Damage To US Security Agencies By Trump Administration’ Says Joe Biden

Joe Biden recently stated that the agencies are critical to US security which has suffered “enormous damage” at the Trump administration’s hands. Biden’s team wasn’t able to get the information it needed including from the Department of Defence, as it transitioned to power.

As per the BBC report, Mr Biden, after a briefing by the National security and foreign policy aides, spoke about the matter stating that the US security suffered heavy damage in Trump’s administration.

After his remark, Acting Defence Secretary Christopher Miller stated officials had been working with the utmost professionalism to support transition activities. “The Department of Defense has conducted 164 interviews with over 400 officials and provided over 5,000 pages of documents – for more than initially requested by Biden’s transition team,” he said after a briefing by national security and foreign policy aides.

Joe Biden also stated that his team was facing roadblocks in the Department of Defence and the Office of Management and Budget. As of now, the team is not getting any information that they should be getting from the outgoing administration in key national security areas. And the whole point is kind of irresponsibility, as depicted by Mr Biden.

The report further stated that Mr Biden’s team needed a clear picture of our force posture worldwide and that US adversaries could exploit any confusion that resulted.

Joe Biden after winning will take office on 20 January, but President Donald Trump has refused to accept defeat in November’s election. For weeks after the 3 November election, Mr Biden was blocked from receiving key intelligence briefings, an essential and normal routine part of a presidential transition.
