Biden relies on female strength for his communications team | Free press

Washington (AP) – US President-elect Joe Biden relies on a team of experienced women for communication in the White House.

Communicating directly and truthfully with the people of America is one of the most important roles of a president, ”said Biden. The prominent role of the government spokeswoman goes to Jen Psaki.

Psaki had served as White House communications director and State Department spokesman under former Democratic President Barack Obama. Since the election, Psaki had conducted several briefings with journalists for Biden. She seemed clear and professional. Your deputy in the White House will be Karine Jean-Pierre, who last worked for Vice President-elect Kamala Harris, as Biden explained.

“I am proud to introduce today the first high-profile communications team to the White House to include only women,” said Biden. The “qualified and experienced” candidates bring different approaches and a common will to move the country forward, Biden said. Harris said, “These communications professionals represent our commitment to create a White House that reflects the best in our country.”

Biden’s current deputy campaign manager, Kate Bedingfield, is slated to become the White House communications director. This gives it a less public role, but one that is important for determining the general communication strategy of the government. Pili Tobar in turn becomes Bedingfields’ deputy. An adviser to Biden’s campaign team, Symone Sanders, becomes the vice president’s spokeswoman; Ashley Etienne will work for Harris as communications director.

Almost simultaneously with Biden’s most recent staffing decisions, the 78-year-old was revealed to have sprained his right ankle while playing with his German Shepherd and suffered minor stress fractures in his foot. Thus, it can be assumed that Biden should wear a boot-like orthopedic support shoe “for several weeks,” said Dr. Kevin O’Connor in a statement circulated by Biden’s office. So it seemed possible that Biden could still wear the support shoe at his planned inauguration on January 20.

The ‘hairline cracks’ related to two small foot bones, called cuneiform bones (os cuneiforme), as the doctor further explained. Biden first visited an orthopedic surgeon in Newark, Delaware, late Sunday afternoon (local time). X-rays did not initially show a fracture. The small fractures were then detected with an MRI scanner. Biden was injured on Saturday while playing with his German Shepherd “Major”.

A representative from Biden’s office said the president-elect had the injury investigated on Sunday so that appointments scheduled for Monday would not be affected. The Democrat and his wife Jill have two sheepdogs who will move with them to the White House in January. According to media reports, the Bidens also want to get a cat.

Biden was declared the winner by the US media after the November 3 election. He will be sworn in as the new president on January 20, with Harris as the first female vice president. Biden has already held various positions in the White House and nominated several cabinet members.

The incumbent President Donald Trump, 74, meanwhile, continues to refuse to acknowledge Biden’s victory. He has been talking about “massive electoral fraud” for weeks, but has not provided reliable evidence. US courts have already dismissed numerous lawsuits to challenge the election results and its Republican allies.

However, after an original refusal, the Trump administration launched the legally required, orderly handover (“transition”) a week ago. Next Monday, Biden and Harris were scheduled to receive the first-ever, strictly confidential briefing from the secret services, which normally only goes to the White House. In addition, the head of the White House Corona Working Group, Deborah Birx, said in a TV interview that she also hopes to speak to Biden on Monday.
