FRANCE 24 English published this video item, entitled “US presidential transition: Biden picks ex-general Lloyd Austin as defense secretary” – below is their description.
President-elect Joe #Biden on Wednesday will formally introduce his pick for defense secretary, retired Army General Lloyd #Austin, amid concern from some in Congress that the #Pentagon should be led by a civilian rather than a career officer. Austin, who would be the country’s first Black secretary of #defense, has built a reputation as an intensely private man who avoided the spotlight during a distinguished four-decade career in uniform, including a stint as head of the military’s Central Command, which oversees U.S. troops across the Middle East.FRANCE 24 English YouTube Channel
