Trump plans Wednesday to convene his first Cabinet meeting since Election Day, according to guidance issued by the White House.

The late-morning gathering at the White House comes as Trump continues to falsely assert he won the election. However, several of his Cabinet members, including Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar, have been coordinating with the Biden transition team.

The White House typically allows reporters to witness portions of Cabinet meetings. As of Tuesday night, Wednesday’s meeting was listed as “closed press.”

Trump has maintained a very light public schedule since Biden was projected as the winner of the election nearly six weeks ago.

Biden says Buttigieg ‘speaks to the best of who we are as a nation’

Biden is expected Wednesday to introduce former South Bend, Ind., mayor Pete Buttigieg as his nominee for transportation secretary during an event in Wilmington, Del., before holding a virtual meeting with a group of governors.

The move elevates Buttigieg — a former rival for the Democratic presidential nomination — to a key role in the incoming administration’s expected push to rebuild the nation’s infrastructure and economy and address climate change.

Buttigieg dropped out of the presidential race and endorsed Biden at a critical moment in March ahead of the Super Tuesday primaries. Shortly afterward, an emotional Biden compared Buttigieg, a former intelligence officer in the Navy Reserve who served a tour in Afghanistan, to his son Beau Biden, who died of brain cancer at age 46.

In a statement Tuesday night, Biden called Buttigieg “a patriot and a problem-solver who speaks to the best of who we are as a nation.” Buttigieg said in a Twitter message he was “honored” to be selected to serve in the role.

Buttigieg, 38, was the first openly gay major-party candidate to win delegates in a bid for the White House, and his campaign was aided by the supportive presence of his husband, Chasten. He would be the first openly gay Cabinet member to be confirmed by the Senate.

Trump lashes out at McConnell for recognizing Biden’s victory

After Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) finally acknowledged on Tuesday that Biden is the president-elect, Trump publicly pleaded with him to support his continued efforts to upend the election with baseless claims of mass electoral fraud.

“Mitch, 75,000,000 VOTES, a record for a sitting President (by a lot). Too soon to give up,” the president tweeted at nearly 1 a.m. Wednesday. “Republican Party must finally learn to fight. People are angry!”

Trump’s tweet made it clear that McConnell’s decision to recognize Biden as president-elect has opened a rift at the top of the GOP, with the president continuing to falsely claim victory while McConnell works behind the scenes to persuade Republican senators not to challenge the electoral college, which cast 306 votes for Biden on Monday, formalizing his victory.

Next-door neighbors of Mar-a-Lago, Trump’s private club in Palm Beach, Fla., that he has called his Winter White House, have a message for the outgoing commander in chief: We don’t want you to be our neighbor.

That message was formally delivered Tuesday morning in a demand letter to the town of Palm Beach and to the U.S. Secret Service. It asserted that Trump lost his legal right to live at Mar-a-Lago because of an agreement he signed in the early 1990s when he converted the storied estate from his private residence to a private club.
