Joe Biden will unveil his first choices for the future US government on Tuesday, continuing to set up his team two months before his inauguration despite Donald Trump’s increasingly desperate attempts to reverse the result of the November 3 presidential election.
“You will see the first appointments of the government of the president-elect Tuesday of this week,” said on the ABC channel Ron Klain, the future chief of staff of Joe Biden, without wishing to specify the portfolios concerned or some of the names. “We’ll have to wait for the president-elect to do it himself on Tuesday,” before the Thanksgiving long weekend, he said. Mr. Biden has already named several close advisers who will surround him in the White House but the suspense persists on his government which should “represent America”, diverse and feminized.
Trump pursues legal action
Donald Trump and his lawyers, on the other hand, are continuing their multiple legal actions, denouncing massive electoral fraud without having provided concrete proof for the moment.
Nationally, Joe Biden won nearly 80 million votes in the ballot, against just under 74 million for the Republican billionaire. But the presidency is played out through a system of electors allocated in each state. One by one, the key states which have swung to the side of the Democrats must certify their results.
The billionaire on Sunday called on the Republican Party to “fight” not to let the Democrats “destroy the evidence” of this alleged fraud.
