Biden Announces Cabinet Members for 2021 Presidency

In a newsletter, Biden released six candidates for his new cabinet. He claimed to have found new secretaries for six of the departments. All of the first six secretaries have been nominated for national security and International relations.

Joe Biden has shown intent to nominate and the following individuals: Tony Blinken as Secretary of State, Alejandro Mayorkas as Secretary of Homeland Security, Avril Haines as Director of National Intelligence, Linad Thomas-Greenfield as US Ambassador to the United Nations (UN), Jake Sullivan as National Security Advisor, and Secretary John Kerry as Special Presidential Envoy for Climate.

Tony Blinken has experience with Joe Biden as a National Security Advisor while Joe Biden served as VP and as Deputy Secretary of State under Pres. Obama.

Alejandro Mayorkas served as Deputy Secretary of Homeland Security under Pres. Obama and is known for implementation of DACA, cybersecurity, as well as protective measures taken against the Ebola and the Zika virus during the Obama administration.

Avril Haines was a Deputy Director of the CIA and has now been assigned to serve as the Director of the CIA. Biden promises that the CIA will behave in a way to protect national security without being undermined or politicized.

Linda Thomas-Greenfield has 35 years of experience within the US Foreign Service and is to serve as the US Ambassador to the United Nations. She also served as the Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs in the US Department of States’ Bureau of African Affairs from 2013 to 2017.

Jake Sullivan served as Joe Biden’s National Security Advisor during his Vice Presidency and is deemed to be one of the youngest National Security Advisors if confirmed.

John Kerry previously ran for the US presidency and worked as the Secretary of State under Pres. Obama. He encouraged the signing of the Paris Treaty, which the Trump administration withdrew from. This position is considered to be a new position, as cabinet-level climate change position or policy concerns had not been implemented or considered before.

As Pres. Trump’s term nears its end, Biden administration is beginning to show its form. 2021 is only a little over a month away.
