Extensive coverage was also given of several key members of his business team. Biden will select Adewale "Wally" Adeyemo as Assistant Secretary of the Treasury. Jared Bernstein and Heather Boushey will serve on the board of economic advisors, cheering on many progressives, and the CEA is reportedly headed by Princeton University's Cecilia Rouse, who will be the first black woman to play the role.
Biden also appointed an all-female White House communications team: Kate Bedingfield as communications director, Jen Psaki as press officer, Karine Jean-Pierre as assistant press officer, and Pili Tobar as assistant communications director. The Director of Communications for elected Vice President Kamala Harris will be Ashley Etienne and Symone Sanders will be Harris' senior advisor and keynote speaker.
Rahm Emanuel continues to be reported as a possible transport secretary. It is still a terrible idea to give Emanuel a prominent role in the Bien administration. Aside from concerns that he stems from his time in the Obama administration or in the leadership of the House of Representatives, his role in the police covering up the Laquan McDonald's murder is simply disqualifying.
