BIDEN-HARRIS ADMIN: “I’m going to be announcing the remaining 15 members of the Cabinet.
The first eight members are the most diverse Cabinet anyone in American history has ever announced. There are three white men. There are — excuse me — there are three men. There are five women. There are five people of color, three white people.
I mean, this is going to be an incredibly diverse — I’m going to keep my commitment that the administration, both in the White House and outside in the Cabinet, is going to look like the country…
And when it’s all over, people will take a look and say, I promise you, you’ll see the most diverse Cabinet, representative of all folks, Asian- Americans, African-Americans, Latinos, LGBTQ, across the board.”
