[Global Network Report] On the 20th local time, President-elect Biden officially took office as the 46th President of the United States.
According to the British newspaper The Guardian, Biden has become the first president to take office in the past 30 years without confirming the nomination of a cabinet member.
According to the report, cabinet members confirmed that the process had been postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Capitol riots on January 6, and the refusal of some Republicans to accept the election results.
So far, in the past 30 years, at least some cabinet members of the inauguration president have been confirmed before inauguration.
On November 23 last year, Biden announced the first list of cabinet ministers, including key positions related to foreign affairs and national security policy, such as Secretary of State, Secretary of Homeland Security, and Director of National Intelligence.
