Ayyyeee… What’s Goodie Everyone. So I got some tea and it involves an economic policy that has Trump’s name all over it.
The White House budget office has instructed federal agencies to continue preparing the administration’s budget proposal for the next fiscal year, this is according to multiple administration officials who spoke on the condition of anonymity to share details of private conversations; according to the Washington Post.
The White House budget proposal is usually issued in February, which would be at least two weeks after President Trump is scheduled to depart the White House. He lost the November 3 election to former vice president Joe Biden, who is set to be sworn in on Jan. 20, even though Trump has refused to accept the results.
Thie decision to proceed with Trump’s budget for the 2022 fiscal year has surprised several career staffers given Biden’s victory, as well as the fact that the incoming Biden administration is expected to submit its budget plan to Congress early next year.
Insistence on budget planning, even though Trump won’t be in office to offer a budget in February, is part of a recent pattern of behavior from White House officials and senior political appointees that have shown a rejection of the election results.
