The Joe Biden Administration: The elected president forms a diverse government

The Joe Biden Administration: The elected president forms a diverse government”

US President-elect Joe Biden has named his aide Ron Klain as White House Chief of Staff as he prepares to launch his administration in January.

In his memoir which will be up for sale on Tuesday, former USA president Barack Obama has revealed that President-elect Joe Biden was not in favour of raid in Pakistan that killed Osama bin Laden. The chief of staff is typically a gatekeeper for the president, crafts political and legislative strategy and often serves as a liaison to Capitol Hill in legislative negotiations.

Lyle Brainard, a conservative at the Federal Reserve and another moderate politician, is the favorite to be appointed Treasury Secretary, while Doug Jones, who was recently defeated as a Senator from Alabama, or Sally Yates, the acting attorney general under Trump before he was sacked, Forward as attorney general. When then-Delaware Sen. Biden chaired the Senate Judiciary Committee in the early 1990s, Klain was the committee's chief counsel and a major figure in the tumultuous hearings over Justice Clarence Thomas' nomination to the Supreme Court.

Ron Klain (left) was the so-called "Ebola czar" during President Barack Obama's presidency.

In 1992, Klain joined the Bill Clinton and Al Gore campaign for President.

A handful of Republican senators have urged the Trump administration to allow Biden to receive presidential daily intelligence briefings, which the president-elect traditionally receives before taking office.

In early 2020, Klain joined Biden's presidential campaign as a senior advisor.

"I'm honoured by the President-elect's confidence and will give my all to lead a talented and diverse team in a Biden-Harris WH", Klain tweeted. "I'm not going to go into the names", Klain said in an interview on MSNBC's "The Last Word with Lawrence O'Donnell".

The choice of Klain underscores the effort the incoming Biden administration will place on the coronavirus response from Day One.

In a statement Wednesday night, Biden suggested he chose Klain for the position because his longtime experience in Washington had prepared him for such challenges.

But he pointed to the government's response to the coronavirus pandemic, as something that could be further bungled if there's a rocky transition.
