Love these two superheroes ❤️ Check out this awesome conversation between @fp_coalition founder @RobertDowneyJr (aka Iron Man) and former Secretary of State @JohnKerry on what America can do to galvanize global #ClimateAction 🌎 #ClimateAvengers #UniteForChange
President-elect Biden has nominated Ambassador Samantha Power as USAID Administrator.
A leading voice for humane and principled American engagement in the world, she will rally the international community and work with our partners to confront the biggest challenges of our time.
Delighted to see my friend @SamanthaJPower heading to @USAID. She's bold, brilliant, and an idealist who gets things done. Development is essential in America's rightful role in the world and is great for jobs at home. And Sam has the right taste in baseball teams too!
President-elect Biden has nominated career diplomat and crisis-tested national security expert Ambassador William Burns as Director of the CIA.
Ambassador Burns has a deep understanding of the threats we face, and will tirelessly protect the American people.
Bill Burns represents not just excellence in diplomacy, but integrity and honesty in public service – exactly what he’ll bring to the CIA. My former colleagues in the Senate will find someone who is candid, accessible, thoroughly nonpartisan, and who loves his country.
1. My deepest sympathies to the families of Capitol Police Officers Brian Sicknick and Howard Liebengood. During my last years in office, Howie was stationed next to one of our offices in the Russell Building - doors where everyone from school groups to protesters entered/exited.
Today, President-elect Biden and Vice President-elect Harris announced staff members for the National Security Council. These leaders will work relentlessly to safeguard Americans, defend our interests, and advance our democratic values.
Jon Finer will be a superb Deputy National Security Advisor to @jakejsullivan. He was an excellent @StateDept chief of staff to me and offered invaluable counsel on every decision. He's ready on day one.
Dr. Biden earned her degrees through hard work and pure grit. She is an inspiration to me, to her students, and to Americans across this country. This story would never have been written about a man.
The author sounds like he probably also believes I should drop the title "Secretary" because only women are secretaries. Disgraceful.
Five years ago today, the world gathered to adopt the Paris Agreement on climate change.
And in 39 days, the United States is going to rejoin it.
We’re going to rally the world to push our progress further and faster and tackle the climate crisis head-on.
President-elect @JoeBiden isn’t just committed to re-entering Paris, but building on it to raise the world’s ambition. Five years ago, it was a privilege to be in "the room where it happens” as we negotiated Paris - and I can’t wait to get back to work on America’s team.
.@AmbassadorRice is one of the most brilliant, tenacious, and determined colleagues I’ve ever known. She's incredibly talented and has the ability to draw skilled people to her side. She's always been a great teammate and will be superb leading the Domestic Policy Council.
Climate change is an existential crisis. Life on this planet is being threatened.
But it’s not all doom and gloom, we have a major opportunity to change our course. @JoeBiden is challenging us to win the battle against the climate crisis – I’m ready to take that on.
