WASHINGTON (Reuters) – President-elect Joe Biden will announce the first of his cabinet choices on Tuesday, incoming White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain said Sunday.
“You’re going to see the first cabinet picks on Tuesday. But if you want to know which cabinet bodies they are, who are going to be in those cabinet bodies, you have to wait for the president-elect to say so himself. On Tuesday,” Klain said in an interview with ABC’s. This Week. “
The incoming president, a Democrat, has pledged to build a government that reflects the country’s diversity. He said last week that he had already elected his finance minister.
“We made that decision,” Biden told a press conference. “And you will see that it is someone who I think will be accepted by all elements of the Democratic Party … progressive for the moderate coalitions.”
Biden’s shortlisted candidates include former Fed Chairman Janet Yellen, current Fed Governor Lael Brainard, Sarah Bloom Raskin, a former Fed Governor, and Raphael Bostic, President of the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta.
