New Delhi. US President-elect Joe Biden on Monday nominated Janet Yellen for the post of finance secretary and Indian-American Neera Tandon as director of the Office of Management and Budget, the top White House post. If confirmed by the US Senate, Yellen, 74, would be the first woman in its 231-year history to head the finance ministry. On the other hand, if Tandon (50) is confirmed for this position in the US Senate, she will be the first black woman to head the influential ‘Office of Management and Budget’ (OMB) in the White House. Tandon is currently the chief executive officer of the left-leaning ‘Center for American Progress’.

Only women in senior press team

Biden has given only women a place in his senior press team. This is the first time in the history of America that any President’s prest team should be all women. The team will be led by Kate Bedingfield, who formerly served as deputy communications director for Biden’s campaign. Biden has promised that he will diversify his administration to reflect the country’s diversity. Let us tell you that Jane Psaki, who was the communications director of the White House during the tenure of President Barack Obama, will be Biden’s press secretary.

Biden issued a statement saying that it is the responsibility of the President to keep direct and accurate communication with the people of America. This team has the responsibility of connecting the White House with the American people. I am sure it will live up to this. The team’s qualified and experienced communicators will work on different aspects. Everyone will join the mission of making America better again. Kamala Harris’ two chief press officers will be Simone Sanders and Ashley Etienne. Unlike cabinet positions, the press office does not require the approval of the Senate.

Prior to this, from 1997 to 1999, she was the chairman of the Economic Advisory Council of the White House.
