On Wednesday, piles of empty boxes were transported to the White House, while the Trump administration’s clock was still ticking.
The cartons and pallets have been delivered to the Eisenhower Administrative Office Building, and the Biden administration is scheduled to take office within a week on January 20. Most offices in the office building are used by White House staff.
The Biden administration plans to conduct a deep cleansing of the White House itself.
Government contracts and purchase orders reviewed by NBC News show that the additional cleaning costs totaled nearly $500,000. CNN reported for the first time that the cleaning from top to bottom is beyond the scope of cleaning that usually occurs during the change of residences carefully arranged by the White House seducers, butlers and butlers, and after multiple outbreaks of the coronavirus on the White House floor, this cleaning has been done. Beyond the norm.
The State Department announced Wednesday that Biden will stay at the Blair House the night before the inauguration, and President Donald Trump said he will not attend.
A State Department spokesperson said: “In accordance with established practice, the White House provided access to Blair House on January 19 and was accepted.”
Trump is expected to move to his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida after leaving office.
