On December 18th the U.S. news website Axios exclusively reported, that The U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) has fully suspended the transition of Biden’s transition team with Kamala Harris.

The U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) sent a letter to the Biden team on Nov. 23 to initiate the transition process.The U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) then began the transition of authority program.  However, on Friday morning, Acting Secretary of Defense Christopher Miller (Christopher Miller) urgently ordered a full suspension of cooperation with President-elect Biden’s transition of power, and did not explain the reasons for the suspension of the handover. The Defense Department later issued a statement saying the Pentagon never canceled any related work, but only agreed with Biden’s team to suspend for two weeks and will resume in January.

At 3:30 p.m. Friday, President Trump met with Acting Defense Secretary Miller in the Oval Office. Miller’s move shocked officials throughout the Pentagon, according to senior administration officials, and was the largest outburst of distrust of the Biden team from the top of the Trump administration to date.

Miller ordered the Pentagon to stop cooperating with the so-called “President-elect” Biden team’s “transition handover,” indicating that the process of power transition, the game of wrestling intensified. This means that the Department of Defense is likely to make significant moves in the next ten days or so in January.
