From Trump Tower in Manhattan to the White House in D.C., President-elect Donald Trump will be moving into his new residence following his inauguration this Friday.
According to former White House chief usher Stephen Rochon, everything has to be perfectly situated for Mr. Trump, from pressed suits to ready-to-use toothbrushes.
Rochon previously oversaw the transition between President George W. Bush and President Obama in January 2009. President Obama will be officially leaving following the ceremony of Trump’s swearing in to take over. With Obama moving out and Trump moving in, there is less than 5-hours to get it all done, and “the entire house has to be just the way the incoming family wants it,” Rochon told USA Today in describing the process.
“Once I step inside the door, that’s when I give the signal and we go to action,” Rochon said about the process setting up the White House to a new president’s needs.
Dean Mercer, a former Secret Service agent for President Clinton and President George W. Bush’s details, describes the hectic transition shuffle in the White House as a “beehive” of activity. “The outgoing president sees the house the way he always saw it,” said Mercer. “Then the incoming president walks in and everything that is his is there.”
