President-elect Joe Biden will announce the cabinet appointment next Tuesday, the new White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain confirmed on Sunday.
“You will see the first cabinet election this Tuesday,” Klain said in an interview with ABC News. “But if you want to know which Cabinet Agencies they are, who will be in those Cabinet Agencies, you have to wait for the President-elect to say so himself on Tuesday.”
Biden also said last week that he decided who to nominate for Treasury Secretary and make the Thanksgiving announcement.
Biden’s move to announce cabinet elections and move ahead with the presidential transition comes as President Donald Trump still refuses to approve the November 3rd election.
Klain said Trump’s allegations of electoral fraud and litigation during the race were “caustic” and “harmful” but stressed that his actions would not change the election result.
Biden’s team still lacks access to government resources usually provided in support of the change of president, including information and a distribution plan for a coronavirus vaccine, Klain added.
