For the first time in history women have the chance to weigh in on every important White House decision. #PassTheBill pic.twitter.com/XG6lQIy5a6 — Vice President Mike Pence (@VP) March 23, 2017Shortly after that, Vice President Mike Pence tweeted out a photo of a meeting he chaired to discuss, among other things, maternity benefits. Yes, there have been women in the White House in every recent administration, including Trump's. Biden has selected people who are highly accomplished and superbly qualified to serve in his Cabinet and on his White House staff. In service to white men, our nation has squandered much of its talent, tamped down ambitions and, as a result, underachieved.

Russian state broadcaster NTV aired an attempted satirical segment over the weekend with a Russian actress in blackface portraying former US president Barack Obama in blackface. Kremlin-affiliated TV station NTV aired a racist program over the weekend featuring a Russian actress in blackface, apparently posing as former US president Barack Obama. The racist skit appeared on NTV's "Mezhdunarodnaya Pilorama" or "International Sawmill," a satirical show with Tigran Keosayan as the host. In the segment, a Russian actress appears as Obama, wearing blackface and baggy clothes and a bandana and gesturing in an attempt to mimic rappers. "We now go live to the dark side of America's history, Barack Obama," Keosayan says, introducing the actress in blackface.

U.S. President-elect Joe Biden delivers a pre-Thanksgiving speech at his transition headquarters in Wilmington, Delaware, U.S., November 25, 2020.

LONDON (Reuters Breakingviews) - French Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire wants U.S. President-elect Joe Biden’s help on corporate tax reform. The current regime allows technology companies to shift profit generated in, say, France, to lower-tax countries like Ireland and Luxembourg. Rather than focusing on tech, governments could introduce a global minimum corporate tax rate. An OECD analysis suggests introducing a minimum tax rate would raise up to $70 billion outside of the United States, with high-income nations like France doing particularly well. It’s possible to introduce a minimum tax without also tweaking the rules for digital companies.

WASHINGTON—President-elect Joe Biden has chosen Brian Deese, a former adviser to Barack Obama, to be the director of the National Economic Council, according to people familiar with the matter. In his new post, which doesn’t require Senate confirmation, Mr. Deese will play a lead role in implementing Mr. Biden’s economic agenda, with a focus on rebuilding the economy amid a pandemic that has devastated many U.S. businesses and resulted in millions of lost jobs.

If Joe Biden is trying to distinguish his emerging Administration from Barack Obama’s, he hasn’t succeeded in the choice of economic advisers he rolled out Monday. They’re Obama veterans who believe in more spending, more regulation, higher taxes, and easier money. Let’s hope the result is better than what became known as “secular stagnation” during the Obama years. Janet Yellen, the Treasury nominee, is an economist with a distinguished political resume. She’s a Keynesian from the James Tobin school who believes in spending...

President-elect Joe Biden is expected to name Neera Tanden to lead the Office of Management and Budget and Cecilia Rouse to chair the Council of Economic Advisers, three people familiar with the process confirmed to NBC News on Sunday. He also is expected to nominate Adewale “Wally” Adeyemo to be deputy Treasury secretary alongside Janet Yellen, NBC News has learned. Biden is expected to introduce members of his economics team Tuesday in Wilmington.

Adeyemo served as a senior international economics adviser to former President Barack Obama and was named last year as the Obama Foundation’s first president.

In 2024, however, he fully expects Donald Trump to be a candidate for US president. And I think that's one of the main missing links and criminal justice conversation in America today.

Joe Biden announced six top economic job picks on Monday, but he may set off his first confirmation fight by nominating Neera Tanden as head of the Office of Management and Budget. Several Republicans suggested she would face GOP resistance in the Senate during the confirmation process. President-elect Joe Biden announced half a dozen picks for top economic jobs in his administration on Monday. It's unclear so far how they would vote on Tanden, but the senators could decide whether her confirmation is successful. If Democrats win both races in Georgia, the party would hold a threadbare majority with Vice President-elect Kamala Harris casting the tiebreaking vote on much of Biden's economic agenda — including Tanden's nomination.

That's forced US auto giants including Ford and General Motors to revise their strategies with a plan to pump out large electric vehicles like pick-up trucks, cargo vans, and SUVs. The shift is driven not only by tightening regulations, but also by improving technology that limits the compromises consumers are forced to make when they buy electric cars. "General Motors wants to accelerate customer adoption of electric vehicles," the firm's CEO, Mary Barra, wrote in a letter to environmental groups earlier this month. That's a major reason why they have resisted rolling out more electric cars, he said. Now, GM is making an electric Hummer, Ford is making an electric F-150 pick-up truck, and FCA is making an electric Jeep.

Retired Navy Adm. Mike Mullen, a former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said Sunday that Trump's recent personnel purge at the Pentagon was troubling. "It's pretty difficult to think that over the course of 50 or 60 days you can do something constructive, but you can do something that's really destructive," Mullen said. Both said they were worried by the administration's rushed attempts to withdraw thousands of US troops from Iraq and Afghanistan. Mike Mullen, a retired Navy admiral and formerly the top US military officer, sounded the alarm Sunday over the recent Pentagon leadership purge, noting that there is still time for President Donald Trump and his team to do "something that's really destructive."

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - White House senior adviser Jared Kushner and his team are headed to Saudi Arabia and Qatar this week for talks in a region simmering with tension after the killing of an Iranian nuclear scientist.

U.S. officials believe enticing Saudi Arabia into a deal with Israel would prompt other Arab nations to follow suit. The official said Kushner met at the White House last week with the Kuwaiti foreign minister, Sheikh Ahmad Nasser Al-Mohammad Al-Sabah. Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates, which comprise the GCC, cut diplomatic ties with Qatar in 2017 and imposed a boycott over allegations that Qatar supported terrorism, a charge it denies.
