Biden builds out his presidential transition operation
June 20, 2020
While President Donald Trump eagerly returns to the campaign trail, Joe Biden is building out a team with an eye toward governing.
Ted Kaufman, one of Biden’s longest-serving advisers, has tapped a half-dozen government veterans to work with him as part of a formal transition operation that has been established independent of the Biden campaign, officials involved with the process told NBC News.
Kaufman described the work as in “the very early stages,” and part of an effort to “ensure continuity of government during such a critical moment for our country.”
