He said he, as well as the president-elect, were pleased to report that the transition wrapped up “on schedule and under budget.”
“We will actually return some 20 percent of taxpayer funding back to the U.S. Treasury, and that is exactly in keeping with the president-elect’s expectations going forward.”
