Joe Biden-America Is Back, Ready To Lead The World
Saying: "America is back, ready to lead the world.”, President-elect Joe Biden introduced a slate of veteran diplomats and policy-makers who will make up his national security and foreign policy team.
Biden at an event in his hometown of Wilmington, Delaware, presented his picks for secretary of state, national security advisor, homeland security secretary, intelligence chief, UN ambassador, and climate change envoy.
Biden said that after he is inaugurated on January 20, 2021, and Trump leaves the White House, the US will "once again sit at the head of the table, ready to confront our adversaries and not reject our allies.”
Pennsylvania and Nevada certified the November 3 election results on Tuesday, a day after the state of Michigan did so, a move that triggered the General Services Administration (GSA) to launch the transition process.
As more members of his Republican Party came out demanding an end to the impasse, Trump signed off on the GSA move, effectively admitting defeat but still refusing to concede.
Trump, who has made few public appearances since his defeat, later attended a traditional Thanksgiving turkey-pardoning event at the White House, touting the Dow breaking 30,000 points and thanking hospital workers battling the Covid-19 pandemic.
