Biden’s early White House transition plans negotiate pressure from both ends of political spectrum
October 24, 2020
Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden hasn’t yet won his race against incumbent Donald Trump, but he’s already started working on transition plans in case he does. With a country divided, the former vice president has said on the campaign trail, he would have the task of reuniting America and restoring its health and economic standing amid the brutal COVID-19 pandemic. If elected, he would face pressure from both sides of the aisle — with Republicans and more moderate Democrats pushing against a more progressive agenda and the far-left pushing for it — and delivering early wins would be crucial.
