Aide says Biden will appoint ‘COVID coordinator’

Joe Biden speaks to Republican officials after his victory Ron Klain: Biden Hasn't Spoken Yet With McConnell

Hopes that Democrat Joe Biden would be be a moderate President of the United States were dashed yet again this week with the former vice president's announcement of the vocally pro-abortion Ron Klain to serve as his White House Chief of Staff, should the presidential election be ultimately certified in his favor.

Klain, a longtime Biden adviser who was announced as the next chief of staff on Wednesday, said the president-elect has yet to speak with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., Y. He suggested that part of the reason is that the Republican leader has supported President Donald Trump's efforts to challenge the election results.

Joe Biden is piecing together what he has promised to be a diverse cabinet, with Michele Flournoy reportedly top choice for U.S. defence secretary and Susan Rice considered a frontrunner for secretary of state.

The presumptive president-elect's transition period has been delayed while Trump and his campaign mount legal defenses in several states over claims of voter fraud.

"He has not spoken, though, to Senator McConnell", the Biden aide said.

Im don do presidential debate coach for Bill Clinton, AlGore, John Kerry, Barrack Obama and Joe Biden.

Klain's most recent stint in the White House with Biden came during the fallout from the 2008-2009 financial crisis, when Biden was charged by Obama with overseeing implementation of the $787-billion US Recovery Act to needy state and local governments.

Im later serve as "Ebola czar" under Obama during di spread of di deadly disease for 2014. 'They obviously need no introduction to one another.

Biden, who has vowed "to be a president for all Americans", will face a challenge getting his cabinet picks past a Republican-held Senate if, as expected, the party retains control of the chamber following two special elections in Georgia in January.

Klain drew upon the Ebola experience to advise Biden this year about the coronavirus outbreak. Klain himself clerked on the court for Justice Byron White.

"The president, the administration, is not going to lead", Mr. Klain said.

"I look forward to helping him and the vice president-elect assemble a talented and diverse team to work in the White House, as we tackle their ambitious agenda for change, and seek to heal the divides in our country", said Mr Klain.
