Donald Trump spent today publicly siding with Russia in its cyberterrorist attacks against U.S. government agencies, and trying to scare people by making the impossible threat of some kind of military coup. Meanwhile, President-elect Joe Biden spent today reminding us why he beat Trump by seven million votes.
Biden held an event to roll out multiple new cabinet members, including Deb Haaland as Secretary of the Interior, Jennifer Granholm as Secretary of Energy, and Michael Regan as EPA Administrator. These are all highly qualified people who will be able to hit the ground running on day one.
Climate guru Al Gore was overwhelmingly pleased with Joe Biden’s picks, tweeting this: “President-elect Biden has assembled not only an “A” team to lead his climate agenda forward, but an “A+” team! Each appointee is ready on Day 1 to take on the urgent, existential threat of the climate crisis, while creating millions of new jobs & protecting frontline communities.”
