President-elect Donald Trump’s transition team is now part of the government, at least online, in the form of a GreatAgain.gov website.
The website, registered through the General Services Administration, is a traditional element of the federally funded transition between administrations, carried out under the terms of the 2010 Pre-Election Presidential Transition Act.
The GSA has been supporting transition activities for months, not only for the Trump team but for Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton’s team as well.
GreatAgain.gov, which is inspired by Trump’s “Make America Great Again” slogan, made its public debut on Nov. 9, a day after the election. But it was primed for action even before the outcome was known. On Nov. 6, for example, the website noted that 4,000 political appointees would be leaving to make room for the new administration.
“Finding qualified people to fill these jobs is an enormous undertaking, but it is critically important to making the federal government work effectively for the American public,” according to the posting, which mirrors a notice that was posted by the Center for Presidential Transition back in March.
