Biden administration transition cost nearly $20M more than Trump’s

February 22, 2021

President Biden’s transition effort cost many times that of President Donald Trump, though he also significantly outraised his predecessor. The president’s team spent nearly $24.4 million through mid-February, according to data disclosed on Monday by the General Services Administration, compared with $4.7 million spent by Trump’s team over the comparable period in 2017.

Transitions are typically paid for by a combination of public and private funds.
