The President-elect of the United States of America, USA, Joe Biden, is forging ahead with his transition, despite President Donald Trump’s refusal to concede defeat, and is going ahead to make key appointments into his cabinet, Page 36 learnt.
He has now named Ron Klain, a Seasoned Democratic Operative, as his Chief of Staff, in his first public White House personnel choice.
Biden tapped longtime Aide, Klain, who previously served as his first Chief of Staff when he was Vice President.
“His deep, varied experience, and capacity to work with people all across the political spectrum, is precisely what I need in a White House Chief of Staff, as we confront this moment of crisis, and bring our country together again”, Biden said.
He confirmed the appointment, after visiting the Korean War Memorial, in Philadelphia, earlier on Wednesday, for a solemn wreath-laying ceremony, to mark the Veterans Day in the US.
Recall, that it took Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari many long months to appoint very familiar faces into his cabinet in 2015.
