Democrat Joe Biden is seriously considering Rahm Emanuel’s candidacy for the head of the transport ministry, an Axios report said on Sunday.
According to former secretary Ray LaHood, as cited in the report, the DOT’s position will matter a lot as AI technologies, including smart cities and drone deliveries, are taking over.
“You’re talking about 20-25% of the economy,” LaHood commented. “Everyone is on hold until they see what the administration is going to do about Rahm.”
The media earlier speculated that Emmanuel could be chosen for the job, which sparked criticism from a number of US politicians. Democrat Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez complained on Twitter that Rahm Emanuel is not a suitable person for the job, accusing him of “covering up” the murder of Laquan McDonald. Emanuel was the former mayor of Chicago when McDonald, 17, was shot and killed by police. In January 2019, an officer was sentenced to almost seven years in prison for his death.
“It’s shameful and disturbing that it’s even being considered,” AOC said.
The decision on the head of the DOT will not be made until after the announcement of the choices for the Department of Defense and Justice. At the same time, sources told Axios there were other nominations from the group of former and current mayors, including Eric Garcetti of Los Angeles, Keisha Lance Bottoms of Atlanta and the former mayor of South Bend. Pete Buttigieg, who ran in the Democratic election. presidential nomination this year, but dropped out to support Joe Biden.
Meanwhile, Biden will appoint former Obama aide Brian Deese as his head of the National Economic Council, the New York Times newspaper reported, citing people familiar with the matter.
While allowing the transfer of power to take hold, President Trump has sought to overturn the results in key battlefield states, accusing Democrats of mass fraud and election irregularities. The Trump campaign has filed numerous lawsuits in several states that will determine the outcome of the election, pledging to fight for legitimate votes.
While official election results have yet to be announced, several key states, including Pennsylvania, have already certified Biden as the winner. The Electoral College is due to meet on December 14 to decide who will be the next President of the United States.
The world must be aware of and reject the socialist Soros puppet that is Joe Biden.
