Joe Biden is already assembling a White House transition team, an unprecedented move for a presumptive major party candidate six months before the general election and before the party convention.
Biden confirmed he’s getting ready to transition into the presidency when speaking during a virtual fundraising event Thursday.
“Sounds presumptuous… I don’t want to say we started thinking about it a month ago — we did — because that sounds like I was certain this was going to happen, that I would be the nominee. I don’t want it to sound like that, but it has to happen and that’s why the transition team is already being put together.”
Perhaps the Democratic Party elder should be focusing on his campaign for the presidency as opposed to the practicalities of governing, considering the general election is going to be in six months.
However, there’s reason to believe staffing and personnel choices during a Biden presidency will be even more crucial than in other administrations. Biden has increasingly demonstrated what many are calling a decline in mental acuity, and some are speculating that his administration would be almost entirely run by his cabinet.
Biden claims he has “literally several hundred serious, serious players who have been held positions in every department in the federal government who have said, including some Republicans, who have said if you win, I want to come back. I’m ready to serve.”
The plan to roll out an early White House transition team could be an effort on the part of his campaign handlers to reassure the American public that a President Biden wouldn’t be the one running the show in the event of his victory in the November general election.
President Donald Trump Will Move the 2020 Republican Convention Out of North Carolina
The state had interfered in the convention.
President Donald Trump confirmed that he will move the 2020 Republican Convention away from Charlotte, North Carolina in a series of tweets Tuesday night. The state’s Democratic governor, Roy Cooper, had refused to allow the Republican Party to conduct the event at full capacity, citing supposedly necessary coronavirus social distancing restrictions.
The event was slated to be held in late August, well after the apex of the national coronavirus epidemic. Cooper still refused to allow the Republican Party to proceed with its plans to hold a full-sized major party political convention.
Had long planned to have the Republican National Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina, a place I love. Now, @NC_Governor Roy Cooper and his representatives refuse to guarantee that we can have use of the Spectrum Arena – Spend millions of dollars, have everybody arrive, and…

The loss of the Republican convention is set to cost North Carolina millions of dollars in revenue for the state’s economy. Major party conventions are regularly sought by governors and mayors, but it appears that Cooper’s desire to restrict the GOP convention overrode his desire for the benefits of the event.
…then tell them they will not be able to gain entry. Governor Cooper is still in Shelter-In-Place Mode, and not allowing us to occupy the arena as originally anticipated and promised. Would have showcased beautiful North Carolina to the World, and brought in hundreds of…

The President had earlier been threatening to move the convention if North Carolina failed to give the Republican Party the green light to proceed in organizing for its convention as planned.
Sources indicate that GOP officials are already scouting out potential alternative locations for the party’s convention. Early reports suggest that either Arizona or Florida could be selected as possible replacement locations for the event, with both states set to be competitive electoral battlegrounds in the fall presidential election.
Arizona Republican Debbie Lesko called for the RNC to move the convention to her Glendale-area district, and Arizona Governor Doug Ducey has suggested that the state would be willing to welcome the President and Republicans across the country for the crucial political event.
Unlike the NC Governor, I'm ready to welcome the RNC to AZ! @AZCardinals Stadium in my district would be the perfect place to kick off a Trump Victory in 2020. Lots of sunshine, great views, wonderful people. What do you think @GOPChairwoman,@GOP, @realDonaldTrump? #RNCinAZ https://t.co/lT6iBdu8ZK
