Washington Post said this Sunday, Jeff Zients, who led the White House’s reaction to the Chinese coronavirus, will be named president Joe Biden’s chief of staff. He will take Ron Klain’s place, who is expected to be leaving the government in the coming weeks.
Notably, Biden, who wanted to increase the “diversity” in his admin., has chosen Zients to be his chief of staff while ignoring the rest of his diverse team, including Susan Rice, who is black, and Anita Dunn, a top female adviser.
Zients was the face of all the video call coronavirus briefings throughout his tenure in the Biden admin., as Breitbart News has documented, and he coordinated the White House’s coronavirus response with Dr. Anthony Fauci as well as Dr. Rochelle Walensky, the director of the CDC.
Furthermore, the into of fresh covid strains caught Biden’s team off guard under Zients, ultimately rendering the nation unprepared.
Zients, though, has apparently been working in the White House again with Klain since last fall, when he was assisting in the preparation for staff turnover following the midterm elections, which ended up being little because so few top staff members left.
People acquainted with the situation who spoke to the Post said that Zients has recently been given several assignments by Klain, which some have interpreted as Zients being groomed for the top position.
The Post stated that Zients would replace Klain as Biden began to confront new problems in his presidency, including as a GOP-controlled House of Republican lawmakers planned to slam the president as well as his administration with numerous investigations, that includes at least one researching his son Hunter Biden’s business deals.
Biden has come under criticism for how he handled confidential documents improperly and has been caught in numerous problems over the past several weeks. New reports say between 20 and 25 documents were found in Biden’s vice presidents office at the Pennsylvania Biden Center, located near Capitol Hill, and other locations like his home in Delaware.
