Trump said that while politically his team could "sit back, and wait, and watch, and criticize, and we could be a Chuck Schumer and sit back and criticize it", but ultimately, "it wouldn't be fair to the people". But many experts say it's still unclear how that process will work or what an alternative would involve.
