Donald Trump’s transition team has not reached out to officials at the State Department or the Pentagon for briefings as the President-elect prepares to take office in January, according to officials from those agencies.

State Department spokeswoman Elizabeth Trudeau said on Tuesday that the department has not heard from Trump’s transition team, according to Al-Monitor reporter Laura Rozen.

Pentagon spokesman Capt. Jeff Davis told the Washington Examiner that the Defense Department has not heard from Trump’s team, either.

“As of this moment, there’s not been any contact from the president-elect’s transition team,” Davis said. “We stand ready to assist the president-elect’s transition team with a smooth and orderly transition in the interest of national security and for our country.”
