Wilmington, Delaware – One of the consequences of the reluctance of the General Service Administration to “determine” a winner of the presidential election is that the congratulatory phone calls the President-elect Joe Biden gets world leaders going without help from the State Department, according to a transition official.The GSA is the federal government agency which provides the President-elect’s transition team access to federal agencies to help plan policy changes with current administration officials. But current GSA administrator Emily Murphy refuses to acknowledge that Mr Biden is the next president, so the transition process can officially begin.

Over the past two days, Biden has spoken with leaders from Canada, France, Germany, Ireland and the UK, according to readings from the transition team.
