With less than a week left before President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration, the Trump White House is beginning to be cleared out.
Over the past day, the White House has been abuzz with activity, as moving trucks and hand carts could be see around the building and some staffers, including White House economic adviser and election fraud dead-ender Peter Navarro, could be seen toting decorative items outside on the grounds.
