The executive office of President Trump, who continues to wage his delusional crusade in search of a second term, on Wednesday morning reportedly walked back an internal memo that it had emailed to White House staffers the night before detailing the departure process ahead of President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration next month.
“Please disregard the below message,” Trump’s executive office said in its email sent to every White House employee Wednesday morning, according to the Washington Post. “Updated information will be shared in the coming days.”
The memo, which was first reported by Politico, told White House staffers that they would begin packing their bags on the week of Jan. 4. It also detailed information related to outgoing employees’ payroll, benefits, sick leave, work records, ethics debriefing and security clearance.
According to Politico, the memo sent to White House staffers on Tuesday said they would receive a “comprehensive checklist” in the coming days and directed them to “take inventory of your office space.”
Bullet points in the memo included instructions on mundane tasks such as “cleaning out your refrigerator and microwave,” and returning “all White House stationery” and “Presidential gifts.” Additionally, White House staffers were told that work supplies “will be disinfected upon return,” according to Politico.
The internal White House memo starkly contrasts Trump’s vehement refusal to concede as he vows to keep up his legal battles challenging the legitimacy of the election process.
On Tuesday, White House chief of staff Mark Meadows reportedly visited Georgia weeks ahead of the Georgia Senate runoff elections that will determine the balance of the Senate to do Trump’s bidding. Meadows reportedly went to the battleground state to observe local officials’ audit of absentee ballot envelope signatures.
Trump also nonsensically touted in a video he tweeted on Tuesday night that perhaps the next administration “will be me.”
