  • Joe Biden says US is 'back and ready to lead' as cabinet picks are introduced

The US President-elect on Monday (local time) revealed the first six members of his national security and foreign policy team ahead of a formal announcement on Tuesday, including the first female head of intelligence and an envoy for climate issues.

President-elect Joe Biden's nominee to lead the U.S. intelligence community, Avril Haines, made clear Tuesday that she intends to continue "speaking truth to power" if confirmed as the first woman to occupy the role, an apparent dig at her immediate predecessors who faced a constant barrage of criticism for failing to do the same during the Trump administration. They are seen as the President-elect's biggest signal yet of his intention to return to a more traditional approach to diplomacy, and away from Donald Trump's "America-first" approach.

However, he still refuses to concede defeat.

The GSA determination that Biden is the apparent victor gives him access to classified briefings on national security threats and will allow his aides to coordinate with health officials on addressing the worsening coronavirus pandemic.

The overwhelming majority of climate scientists strongly disagree with Trump, and have urged political leaders to take quick action so as to avert a catastrophe that they say is unfolding before our eyes and will only get worse as carbon emissions and global temperatures continue to rise. "We're already working out meeting with the Covid team in the White House".

"The outreach has been honest", Biden said. "There's not been begrudging so far".

"This team meets this moment", he said.

He said his team would pursue the belief "that America is strongest when it works with its allies".

Di General Services Administration (GSA) say dem dey accept Mr Biden as di "alikely winner".

The original agreement was signed by the five permanent members of the United Nations' Security Council - China, France, Russia, the UK, and the U.S. , plus Germany.

Speaking as he introduced his cabinet picks to the nation, Mr Biden said his selection for secretary of state, Antony Blinken, would rebuild morale and trust in the US State Department. "We need their cooperation. We need their partnership".

In a further message of the US' re-engagement with the worldwide community, Mr Biden named Linda Thomas-Greenfield as the USA ambassador to the United Nations.

"America is back. Multilateralism is back. Diplomacy is back", said Thomas-Greenfield, a seasoned career diplomat.

"We see a huge number of opportunities to work with the Americans on the global stage and also bilaterally on the fight against climate change".

Former senator, presidential nominee and Secretary of State John Kerry is set to begin his latest government job after being selected by President-elect Joe Biden as the first-ever special envoy on climate.

Avril Haines has been nominated to serve as director of national intelligence. She will be the first woman in that role if confirmed by the Senate.

Democratic rival Joe Biden is expected to be confirmed as the victor in the Electoral College on December 14 by a count of 306 electoral votes to 232 for Trump, after flipping the states of Pennsylvania, Georgia, Michigan, Minnesota, Arizona, Nevada, and Wisconsin.

The legal efforts have fallen flat, however, along with the attempts to delay state certification.

Mr Blinken has previously held top foreign affairs posts on Capitol Hill, in the White House and in the State Department.
