ABC News reported Monday that the agency that protects current and ex-presidents is making unofficial moves to beef up security at Mar-a-Lago, with the nearby Miami field office looking at physical reinforcements. 

Trump has refused to concede to President-elect Joe Biden, despite court case after court case not going his way. Late Monday, even the GSA administrator who was holding out, signaled President-elect Joe Biden could officially begin the transition.

President-elect Joe Biden has a bigger Secret Service detail than he did during the presidential campaign, with reinforcements sent to Wilmington, Delaware on November 6. However, the Secret Service wouldn't say if he's getting what's normal for a president-elect

President-elect Joe Biden has a bigger Secret Service detail than he did during the presidential campaign, with reinforcements sent to Wilmington, Delaware on November 6. However, the Secret Service wouldn’t say if he’s getting what’s normal for a president-elect 

Biden, in the meantime, has started to pick his cabinet.  

A day before the election was called by the major networks in his favor, the Secret Service had already sent reinforcements to Wilmington, Delaware to offer added protection for Biden.  

As a former vice president, and also the Democratic nominee, Biden already had Secret Service protection, but it was clear from the size of his motorcade on November 6, that his detail had grown. 

His detail will likely get bigger too, but the Secret Service didn’t directly address an inquiry from DailyMail.com on whether Biden is already getting a detail the size of what’s expected for a president-elect, or if something else – like a Trump concession speech, or the Electoral College vote – will trigger that. 

‘For operational security reasons, the Secret Service does not discuss specifically or in general terms the means, methods or resources we utilize to carry out our protective mission,’ a spokesperson said. 

The exact same statement was given to ABC News when reporters asked about Trump’s detail moving to Florida.

ABC News also reported that the Trumps’ living quarters in Mar-a-Lago were being currently renovated. 

Renovations are expected to be completed by January 20, when Biden will be sworn-in and the Trumps will likely decamp to Florida. 

The president and first lady called off plans to spend Thanksgiving at Mar-a-Lago and will stay in Washington instead, the first lady’s spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham tweeted earlier this month. 

As Trump continues with his legal challenges against the election result, CNN reported that a ‘bunker mentality’ has taken hold. 

The president has only made three public appearances since the election was called for Biden on November 7. 

He has, however, left the White House every weekend day since then to play golf.
