“We’ve talked a lot about transfer of power and the election. And it’s worth remembering that this president was never given an orderly transition of power,” McEnany said. “His presidency was never accepted. In fact, before the election his election we know Crossfire Hurricane was launched by [former FBI agent] Peter Strzok to pursue baseless allegations about the president’s ties with Russia.”
“And what happened after he was elected, you had 70 lawmakers say we’re not coming to his inauguration. Democratic lawmakers, you had [Massachusetts Sen.] Elizabeth Warren, saying, we’re going to attempt to obstruct the Trump transition by urging the Government Accountability Office to investigate the incoming Trump transition,” McEnany said.
“Many sought to undermine him, discredit him, delegitimize him and deny his victory. There were no calls for unity, there were no calls for healing. So while every legal vote is counted, let us not forget the inexcusable transition, or lack thereof, that President Trump had to endure in 2016, and for years into this presidency,” the press secretary said.
