Can Biden cure United States?
Can Biden cure United States? After more than three weeks of election disputes, the U.S. government began the process of power transition. Recently, the U.S. General Administration informed Biden and his team that the Trump administration was ready to officially start the regime transition process.
U.S. government officials said on the 24th that the White House approved the daily presidential briefing to Biden on the same day.
The daily briefing is a highly confidential intelligence document submitted to the President of the United States every morning. Also on the 24th, Biden and his first cabinet candidates also appeared in the press conference. So how does the White House make a power transition?
Who are the cabinet members selected by Biden? What will be the direction of Biden’s diplomacy? In the face of the current severe epidemic in the United States, how will it face the challenge? Pay attention one by one.
Most of Biden’s cabinet candidates are officials appointed under Obama.
On the 24th local time, Biden and his first cabinet candidates, as well as some core members of the diplomatic and national security teams, appeared at the press conference. This gives the outside world an opportunity to observe the direction of its foreign security policy.
Biden: Our public officials will work together to restore America’s global leadership and moral leadership.
Biden introduced membership to the media one by one, the vast majority of whom were officials appointed under Obama, and there were many minority and female members.
CNN reported that this reflects Biden’s search to form a diverse team with members not only proficient in public policy, but also rich government experience.
However, Biden stressed that his administration would not become “Obama’s third term”.
Biden appeared with some candidates for the new government.
On November 24th, U.S. local time, Biden and the core members of his chosen cabinet, foreign affairs and national security team appeared.
Biden announced the nomination of his long-term adviser Anthony Blinkinn as Secretary of State; Cuban-American lawyer Alejandro Mayorkas as Secretary of Homeland Security; and Ev, a former deputy director of the CIA Lille Haynes as Director of National Intelligence; African-American Linda Thomas-Greenfield as U.S.
Ambassador to the United Nations; Jack Sullivan as National Security Adviser. Former Secretary of State John Kerry is the President’s Special Envoy on Climate Change.
In addition to the above members, Biden also intends to nominate former Deputy Secretary of Defense Flunoir as Secretary of Defense, according to NBC 24. If appointed, Flunoir will become the first female defense minister in the United States.
The bipartisan struggle has reached an incompatible point.
The U.S. media generally believe that the top priority after Biden takes office should be to solve the domestic epidemic, economic and racial tearing. Speaking to the nation earlier this month, Biden promised to create a “cured America.” However, some American media commented that “serious tearing” is a reality in today’s American society.
Research by the Brookings Institution in the United States shows that the presidential election failed to achieve the political and economic changes that Americans hoped for, but deepened the confrontation between the “red states” that supported Republican states and the “blue states” that supported the Democratic states. Almost all of the largest counties in the United States are in Democratic states, and a small number of previously pro-Republican counties have been added this year.
In contrast, the number of counties that support the Republican Party is obviously dominant, but it mainly consists of small towns and rural communities. The economic scale gap between the two sides is obvious and there is a serious imbalance.
According to the Brookings Institution, this confrontation highlights the continuous differences and struggles between the Democratic and Republican parties, which are almost irreparable. Long-term partisan antagonism means that Congress, the White House and the Senate will be deadlocked on major economic policy issues.
The coronavirus epidemic is severe. Biden speaks on the eve of the holiday.
In addition to forming a cabinet, in the face of the economy, bipartisan struggle and other serious challenges facing Biden are the current epidemic in the United States. Biden spoke on the eve of the traditional Western festival on the 25th, calling on people to continue to fight against the novel coronavirus.
U.S. media: From Election Day to Inauguration Day, it is called a transition period.
At present, the process of power transition in the U.S. government has begun, so how does the White House carry out power transition? Let’s take a look at the transition process of power in the White House illustrated by the American media.
According to U.S. media reports, the period from Election Day to Inauguration Day is called the transition period. The new president formed a cabinet and was ready to start running the federal government.
This work is the responsibility of the transition team. It is independent of the campaign and has its own staff and budget.
The transition team is responsible for setting goals and strategies for the new government for the initial period. What they need to decide is: How to translate campaign promises into policy? What do you do first and then what?
Should the decision of the former president be withdrawn? The federal government provides office space and financial resources for this work. It will also conduct background security reviews. Individuals are allowed to contribute to the Transition Fund, up to a maximum of $5,000 per person. Quickly identifying the president-elect can leave the transition team about 11 weeks.
However, the controversial 2000 general election ended only 39 days before the inauguration day. Ready or not, the new president will be sworn in at noon on January 20.
