image for Biden To Have Entire WH East And West Wings Showered With Disinfectant Right After Trump Leaves

According to Politico, Biden’s transition team will have the White House fully cleaned by General Services Administration (GSA) staffers hours after Trump leaves the building.

A spokesperson for the GSA told Politico that the staffers will “thoroughly clean and disinfect” every area of the East and West Wings that people have touched, including furniture and doorknobs.

A private contractor will also reportedly provide “disinfectant misting services.”.

Nicole Lurie, one of Biden’s COVID-19 advisers, told Politico that the operation will be “the polar opposite of what you’re seeing now.”.

“Instead of people being ridiculed for wearing masks, they’ll be pressured in the other direction.”.

Trump and many current White House officials have persistently refused to wear masks, with the President flatly politicizing the importance of wearing facial coverings that prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Upon returning the White House after he was hospitalized over the virus, Trump immediately took off his mask in front of the public. »
