Democratic candidate Joseph Biden, who earlier announced his victory in the US presidential election, plans to announce the name of his candidate for the post of head of the country’s Treasury in about a week. He stated this during a speech following a meeting with the executive committee of the US National Association of Governors on Thursday, November 19.
According to him, the decision on the candidacy has already been made, it will be announced shortly before or a little later than Thanksgiving Day, which is celebrated on November 26 this year. This position is currently held by Steven Mnuchin. He was appointed in 2017, proposed by the incumbent President Donald Trump and approved by the US Senate, writes TASS…
Earlier, Biden said that the refusal of the current US President Donald Trump to recognize the results of the presidential elections is irresponsible. Biden noted that Trump sent “an incredible signal sent to the world.”
The US presidential election was held on November 3, but the final results have not yet been summed up. Trump has repeatedly stated that it was he who won in the last vote, and not his opponent from the Democratic Party, Joe Biden, who, in turn, considered his opponent’s unwillingness to admit defeat to be a shame and said that he wanted to talk to him personally.
