US election: Biden taps Obama-era officials for cabinet, signalling shift from Trump | HIGHLIGHTS

Global News published this video item, entitled “US election: Biden taps Obama-era officials for cabinet, signalling shift from Trump | HIGHLIGHTS” – below is their description.

U.S. President-elect Joe Biden on Monday tapped Obama-era officials for top national security and economic roles, signalling a stark shift from the Trump administration’s “America First” policies that disparaged international alliances and favoured deregulation and tax cuts. Biden’s Washington veterans all have ties to former President Barack Obama’s administration as the president-elect has sought to deliver a clear message about his desire to reestablish a more predictable engagement from the United States on the global stage. Biden’s transition team hailed the president-elect’s selection as a group of “crisis-tested leaders” who will be ready to hit the ground running in the new administration.
