US President-elect Joe Biden has announced his new cabinet. Although Biden will take charge on January 20, he has begun to prepare his cabinet outlines. Biden has appointed longtime foreign policy advisor Antony Blinken as his secretary of state.
At the same time, Jake Sullivan, who was a security aide to Biden when he was vice president, was appointed as National Security Advisor (NSA). With this, Alejandro Mayorkas will lead the Department of Homeland Security, which oversees immigration. The former deputy CIA director, Avril Haines has been appointed as director of national intelligence and becomes the first woman to ever hold that position.
Blinken will replace Mike Pompeo:
The 58-year-old Blinken will be the new US Secretary of State in the Biden administration. Blinken will take over Pompeo in the Ministry of External Affairs after 20 January. He has been a part of Biden’s administration during the tenure of former President Barack Obama.
Blinken was also Biden’s foreign policy adviser in the 2020 presidential election. In response to the foreign minister’s announcement, he said that he would take his work as a mission. He said that he will carry out his responsibilities well.
Jake Sullivan appointed as National Security Advisor:
Jake Sullivan will be part of the Biden administration. President-elect Biden has appointed Sullivan as his White House National Security Advisor (NSA). The US administration holds the leading role of the NSA. It has a major responsibility in the security of the country.
Sullivan said in his first reaction after his appointment that Joe Biden has taught him how to protect the country. Sullivan said that as NSA, he will take all measures so that America remains safe.
Mayorkas to lead the Department of Homeland Security:
Alejandro Mayorkas will lead the Department of Homeland Security. At present, internal security is very important in America especially, when the ‘Black lives matter’ movement became very violent at the time of the presidential election in America.
In such a situation, the internal security of America will be a big challenge. Let us tell that after the US Presidential election, Biden promised that his cabinet would look like America. Biden had said that it would be the most diverse in the country’s modern history.
