The incoming chief of staff says Biden will begin announcing top cabinet picks this week

The incoming White House Chief of Staff Ron Clann said Sunday that President-Elect Joe Biden will announce his cabinet elections earlier this week.

Klan told ABC’s “This Week” that Americans would see the first of Biden’s nominees on Tuesday.

“Getting the momentum – beating, in fact, is the pace set by the Obama / Biden transition, is the pace set by the Trump transition,” Klan said, “but if you want to know which cabinet agencies they are, those cabinet Who is going to the agencies, you have to wait for the presidential election to say yourself on Tuesday. “

Last week, Biden told reporters that he had settled on a Treasury secretary and would be naming the person around Thanksgiving, although he gave no indication as to who that person might be.

Speaking with CNN’s “State of the Union”, a senior Biden transition official, Jane Saki, said she expected some cabinet secretaries to be named this week, with which to be announced next week.

“The cabinet and team will look like America. That means diversity of ideology, diversity of backgrounds, and she wants to put a range of people’s ideas on the table,” said Saki. “He wants to bring diversity of voices to the table because he fully understands how he wants to pursue an agenda.”

Meanwhile, Klan said in his interview that due to the continued increase in Kovid-19 cases, Americans can expect to see a nontraditional opening on 20 January.

“I think it will definitely have to change.” “We started some consultations with the leadership of the House and Senate on that. Obviously, this is not the kind of inauguration we have had in the past.”

Klan said Biden and Vice President-Elect Kamala Harris “are going to try to hold an inauguration that honors the significance and symbolic meaning of the moment, but is not the result of the spread of the disease.”

“I think we’ll have some mixes of those techniques, some of which are, you know, scaled-down versions of existing traditions,” Klos said. “People have a lot to celebrate on January 20.”
