Murphy, the Trump-appointed administrator, to take the legally essential step of announcing Joe Biden, the President-elect has thus far chock his team from receiving funds of $6.3 million Congress appropriate for transition efforts.

The president-elect says that the daily briefings would be useful, but it is not necessary, and his transition team can go forward without the funding. Biden adds that hey are just going to continue the way they have. Trump also shot down the option of legal action to force the starting of the transition process.
