It wasn't long since speculations swirled over who would feature in president-elect Joe Biden’s inner circle and cabinet. Biden has finally revealed some names of the key members of his inner circle on Monday, November 23.

Former US Secretary of State, John Kerry, has been chosen as the climate envoy. Other top picks include long-time Biden aide, Antony Blinken, who will be serving as the Secretary of State, former Federal Reserve Chair, Janet Yellen, as the Treasury Secretary, Alejandro Mayorkas as Homeland Security Secretary and Linda Thomas-Greenfield as the US Ambassador to the UN.

In a statement released on Monday, Biden said: "I need a team ready on day one to help me reclaim America's seat at the head of the table, rally the world to meet the biggest challenges we face, and advance our security, prosperity, and values. This is the crux of that team."

As soon as the names of first members of the president-elect's inner circle and cabinet were announced, social media users started talking about it. One said, "Wish he would've announced this beforehand. Would've led to more people voting against him." While one said, "Holy shit this is actually pretty good."



 

 



 

 

Another questioned, "John Kerry as Climate Envoy? I don't get that, so many better choices out there." A third said, "There is no better choice than Kerry for this spot - he is THE MOST articulate politician in the country - he is your best advocate for anything you want/need."



 

 



 

 

Many questioned Biden's decision of picking Kerry. one claimed, "He picked a guy with absolutely no educational or career background in Science to be the Climate Envoy. The others served in the previous Obama administration. He could have done a lot better, but i guess he needs to return the favors somehow." While calling the announcement a "mistake" another said, "Kind of a big mistake to roll an entire cabinet out when Trump is trying for a coup, no? I for one prefer vigilance right now."



 

 



 

 

A user said, "I love that everyone's complaining... These people are f*cking MENSA MEMBERS compared to kindergarten schoolyard playtime we have right now." Another wrote, "Wow, real EXPERIENCED candidates, not criminal co-conspirers or unintelligent, grifter family members! Who have destroyed everything. Let the rebuilding began... and let us SLEEP at night!"
