ICYMI: Trump's Transition Team Finished Their Work On Time And Under Budget

Donald J. Trump is the 45th president of the United States. The transition is over. And as Vice President Mike Pence said, the team’s work came in on time and under budget. They didn’t use roughly 20 percent of their budget, so those funds will be returned to the U.S. Treasury (via ABC News):

Vice President–elect Mike Pence said the transition team finished its job "on schedule and under budget," borrowing a line that President-elect Donald Trump has used in discussing his real estate projects.

"We will actually return some 20 percent of taxpayer funding back to the U.S. Treasury," Pence said.

He thanked supporters and members of the transition team for getting as many people as they could in place for jobs before the inauguration.

"We focused ... on a Day One, a Day 100 and a Day 200 action plan" in an effort to put "the president-elect's promises into action," Pence said.

Trump is in; Obama is out. Now, the new president sets out to make America great again.
