Late Monday night, White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows issued a memo saying the administration will "ensure a smooth transition of power."

And earlier that day, the General Services Administration "ascertained" Biden as the "apparent winner" of the election, allowing his team to meet with federal agencies to prepare for Inauguration Day.

And now President Trump is encouraging the transition process too, tweeting that it "is in the best interest of our country." Trump later added that he'll "keep up the fight" as he contests the election.

This came after the Trump team suffered another legal setback Monday as Michigan certified its results, calling Biden the winner.

Meanwhile, Biden has started to announce his cabinet nominees, many of them former members of the Obama administration.

He's expected to name former Federal Reserve chair Janet Yellen as the first woman to be Treasury secretary and is also nominating the first female Director of National Intelligence, Avril Haines.

At Homeland Security, Alejandro Mayorkas would become the first Latino director.

Antony Blinken is Biden's pick for secretary of State and John Kerry will also be put in a top climate position.

"Three words. Safe, establishment, process," CBN Chief Political Analyst said of Biden's picks Monday on Faith Nation. "They're going to make sure they're folks that Biden trusts, that are not far left... well John Kerry is kind of far-left... but a lot of them are going to be down that center-left lane and I think that's what you're going to see."

Inauguration Day is January 20th, now less than 60 days away. Subscribe for free to Breaking Christian News here
