President-elect Donald Trump bristled on Tuesday and Wednesday over claims of disarray, personnel issues, and in-fighting during his White House transition. "Very organized process taking place," he tweeted Tuesday night. "[T]he failing @nytimes story is so totally wrong on transition. It is going so smoothly," he tweeted Wednesday morning. Reports surfaced earlier this week that several transition team members had been expelled from the group due to internal tensions. Additionally, Vice President-elect Mike Pence, who replaced New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie as the head of the transition team, initially stalled the process by leaving unsigned the legal paperwork required to enable Trump's team to begin collaborating with President Obama's aides; Pence finally signed the documents late Tuesday.
