- Joe Biden will select Antony Blinken as secretary of state
- According to recent information, President-elect Joe Biden would join his “lifelong advisor”
- Joe Biden is currently assembling his presidential cabinet
According to a report by Bloomberg, President-elect Joe Biden would select Antony Blinken as secretary of state, despite Trump’s refusal to accept Joe Biden’s victory.
This is according to two people familiar with the matter who also assured that an announcement will be made on Tuesday, according to Bloomberg.
Also, according to the text, Jake Sullivan, one of Hillary Clinton’s closest former advisers, is likely to be appointed Biden’s National Security Adviser.
Both characters were advisers to Biden when he was Obama’s vice president. The position that Antony Blinken could fill is considered one of the most prestigious in the cabinet of the next president Joe Biden.

According to the Efe news agency, Biden will announce on Tuesday the 24th the first members of the cabinet that will make up his government.
“You will see the first announcements about members of the Cabinet this Tuesday,” said Ron Klain, Biden’s chief of staff during an interview with ABC News.
Klain did not clarify, however, whether the announcement will include some of the most anticipated cabinet figures, such as secretaries of state, treasury or justice. He also did not say whether Biden himself would make the announcements. The president-elect said this week that he had already decided who would be his secretary of the Treasury, and that he would make the announcement either before or after Thanksgiving, which is celebrated next Thursday 26.
