Joe Biden appoints an all-female communications team for the first time in history
Joe Biden begins modeling what will be his term from January and has already made the first appointments. The democrat wants his government to be feminist and that is why he has announced that his new communication team will be made up entirely of a group of seven women.
The president-elect’s decision is historic in the US. Biden has been in charge of making the announcement and has ensured that the seven women who will form the communication team will be “diverse” and “experienced” and with them he intends to “build an administration that resembles” the country.
“I am proud to announce today the White House’s first senior communications team made up entirely of women. These skilled and experienced communicators bring diverse perspectives and a shared commitment to better rebuild this country, ”said Biden.
The 7 women chosen
- Jen psaki. It is the one that stands out the most of those named. Psaki has participated in three Democratic presidential campaigns. She also held various positions during the Barack Obama Administration (2009-2017), such as Director of Communication for the White House, spokesperson for the State Department, or Secretary of the Press, the position she will occupy from now on.
- Kate bedingfield. This woman will be the new Director of Communications for the White House. Bedingfield already worked under Biden as his Communications Director during the Obama Administration, in which she held other important positions, such as Deputy Director of Communications, or Deputy Director of Media.
- Elizabeth E. Alexander will be the Communications Director for the next first lady, Jill Biden. She previously held a position as federal prosecutor and press secretary for Biden in the early years of Obama’s term.
- Ashley etienne She will serve as Harris Communications Director, having served in the same position, as well as being the senior advisor, to the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi.
- Karine Jean Pierre, Biden’s senior adviser and Harris’s election campaign chief of staff, will be the new press secretary.
- Symone sanders She worked for Senator Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign and will now serve as Harris’s senior advisor and spokesperson.
- Pili Tobar she will be the deputy director of Communications for the White House. One of the most outstanding pieces of information on his resume is that he has extensive experience in immigration matters and in favor of the Hispanic community.
The vice president-elect, Kamala Harris, has valued this decision very positively: “Our country faces unprecedented challenges, from the coronavirus pandemic to the economic and climate crisis, as well as the recognition of racial injustice. These women express the commitment of the new administration to build a White House that reflects the best of the nation.
Other female positions
The decision to make the communication team entirely women is complemented by the appointment of other women to positions of power. The list of people who will accompany Democrats Harris and Biden for the next four years has a significant female presence.
Among those women, strong personalities such as Janet Yellen, an old acquaintance of the previous Democratic government, stand out as she served as president of the Federal Reserve during the last years of Obama. Also notable is Linda Thomas-Greenfield, a former secretary of state also under Obama and who will now be the United States ambassador to the UN.
On the other hand, Avril Haines will be the first woman to lead the US intelligence services as director of National Intelligence.
All of these charges are not final, as they have to be approved by the Senate. In addition, it is still unknown who will dominate in the Upper House because the vote count continues and Georgia’s last two seats remain at stake until the second round is held in January.
Although Donald Trump continues to talk about fraud, little by little, he seems to recognize that he has lost the elections. The first gesture was made last week, when the Administration of the current US president formally authorized to facilitate the transition of power.
The still president of the United States assured this Wednesday that he already has in his possession “all the evidence” that would prove the alleged fraud in the elections. “We have to turn the election around, because there is no question that we have all the evidence,” said Donald Trump.
“All we need is for a judge to listen to it correctly without having a political opinion or having another type of problem, because we have everything and, by the way, the evidence is coming in now as we speak,” he said.
