Clyburn: Biden cabinet picks are not diverse enough

Self-proclaimed president-elect Joe Biden has already taken major steps to fill his prospective cabinet with Democrat establishment figures, and it’s provoking progressives who thought Biden would be more sympathetic to their wishes.

After Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) indicated that he’s unhappy with Biden’s cabinet choices, Rep. James Clyburn (D-SC) publically took Biden to task over the lack of Black representation in senior leadership positions.

Democrats managed to maintain a united front throughout the general election, but now that they’re confident Trump will be ousted, conflict within the party has once again risen to the surface.

In an interview with The Hill’s Juan Williams, Clyburn hailed Biden’s pick of Linda Thomas-Greenfield, a Black veteran of the diplomatic corps, to serve as U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, but complained that she is the only Black female to be named to a top administration post.

“From all I hear, Black people have been given fair consideration,” Clyburn told Williams. “But there is only one Black woman so far. I want to see where the process leads to, what it produces, but so far it’s not good.”

One of the most powerful Democrats in the House, Clyburn is increasing pressure on Biden to choose Black politicians for cabinet roles. Clyburn is pushing Biden to consider Jacksonville Mayor Alvin Brown to lead the Department of Housing and Urban Development, and Rep. Marcia Fudge (D-OH) for Agriculture secretary, among others. 

The Biden campaign pushed back against Clyburn’s accusations that there isn’t enough diversity among Biden’s staffing choices, responding to The Hill’s inquiry into the matter by pointing out that 46 percent of Biden’s staff are people of color and 52 percent are women.

“He has only announced a few White House staff and cabinet nominees to this point, and his success in finding diverse voices to develop and implement his policy vision to tackle our nation’s toughest challenges will be clear when our full slate of appointees and nominees is complete,” wrote a Biden campaign spokesman.

      1. We will be the laughing stock if pervert Biden is elected.
        He is horrible!!!lord please let Trump win!! He is presidential and
        has done more for America then any other president.

    1. I borrowed your little quote, and posted it on Facebook, underneath the story.

      Thanks for the share.

  2. biden should be impeached with all the evidence against him for being involved in his son hunters especades in china etc. and trump should not have been impeached when it was Hillary who did the russian Hoax along with Bidens and clintons then decided to blame it on trump. no matte what his taxes are about I feel he has paid much with everythinig he had to defend himself against impeachment and all the thing democrates accused him of for four years.

    1. Please don’t forget Obama he is at the top of the heap! If Biden is pulled it will be he that calls the shots! That’s a terrifying possibility!

      1. Biden will be a 3rd term Obama as Obama will be telling him what to do. Biden already is appointing Obama re-runs to positions. YIKES!

        1. Unless PRESIDENT TRUMP HAS A trump CARD up his sleeve, we are all going to be speaking Chinese and no more U.S.A 4TH OF JULY NO MORE GOVERNMENT at all Biden will be aaaa what do you call that you know where horses eat and a! and, that things a fence.

      2. THEY ALL NEED TO BE LOCKED UP.BIDEN HIS SON HUNTER ,COMEY, CLAPPER, HILLERY, STROKE, PAGE BRENNANCLYBURN FOR SAYING HANG TRUMP, PELOSI FOR RIPPING UP THE STATE OF THE UNION SPEECH FOR TRUMP. BOTH SHOULD BE UP FOR TREASON. DURHAM YOU SPENT 40 MILLION OF OUR TAX MONEY FOR NOTHING.BARR STAND UP AND PUT ALL THESE CRIMMAL IN A LOCK UP.TRUMP IS THE WINNER FOR 2020.WE HAD ENOUGH OF ALL THESE CORRUPT DEMORATS.

    2. Yes, but look what that would mean. Kamala is just as bad or worse. I’m just praying that they find enough realfraud to overturn this stolen election to its rightful owner.

  3. I think the Democrats are putting the cart before the horse, Joe Biden isn’t the POTUS and nover will be. But it will be EPIC to watch them howl at the moon when they finally realize the Donald Trump is the man being inaugurated on January 20, 2021. Joe Biden will be hiding, or just trapped, in his basement. The leftist cretin’s heads will explode,……. Glorious!

    1. Glorious Indeed! Let them “play house” for a short time…..and then…..BOOM! Trump Will be sworn in as Our Beloved President AGAIN! Then we can watch them SQUIRM!
      ThankYou God For DJT!🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼

  4. African Americans need to just take a flyin’ leap … Trump WARNED them the would be (once again) taken advantage of.

    … so, screw ’em.

    1. Trump was making such progress with African American and he will make much more if allowed to serve his second term.
      Look at all the promises made and kept by Trump. When did we have a president that did that consistently like Trump has and will continue to do if given the chance.

    2. I am so sick of black whining. They are at most 15% of the population but want at least 50% of everything. Look at commercials today; almost every single one has a poc. Corporate America is so afraid of BLM that it has sold out. The USA has some very difficult issues to face. Should Biden actually be declared POTUS – we know he won’t win! We need people who are the most qualified, not people just because they have dark pigmentation.

  5. Right BDS he will NEVER be my president. Hidin’ Biden is Xi’s puppet. Remember resist, resist, resist!!!! Soon you’ll hear or see “The storm has arisen.” That will either mean that President Trump won or that it’s time for another revolution as over 600 veterans have agreed with me about.

    1. I’m a disabled veteran and there’s no way I will ever say biden is my president! That man is a joke and a crook! Everything he says is a lie. He has run for President how many times and ever time biden loses! President Trump will win this election or all hell will brake lose. Everyone knows that President Trump won the election and the American people will never and I mean never let biden or Kamala in the White House! I will fight to the death with President Trump!! 🇺🇸TRUMP/PENCE 🇺🇸

    2. My father was a Sergeant Major with the Ninth Army at Chosin Reservoir and constantly told me they should have let MacArthur nuke the Red Communist, due to what I see now, he was 100% correct. Now we’ll have a President in their back pocket, if it wasn’t for a fallout I’d say drop a W-88 Warhead right in the middle of China with Joe,Hunter and Cyburned attached…

  6. What did you expect? Biden and Son are the biggest crooks in the nation. He will tell you anything to get where he wants to be – THEN – the screwing comes without a kiss! Pelosi and Schumer are the same! If this election can’t be corrected we are in for some scary days.

  7. Velcom to da house of slease! Here, ve offa many lies. Ve gif you many broken promises. Ve dive to da bottom of da barrel fa worse tings ta come. Ve hope to yo enjoi da ride! U can deposit yo moola right hear, or ve vill steel it frum yo. Mi name is joe, und I aprov dis messaj.

  8. I can see Obama feeding Dementia Joe on what, where and why. Then Obama is getting his word’s for his Master ( Soros ) all of these Communist Rat’s are just Puppet’s that belong to the one Big Master and that is Soros Himself. They all belong in front of a fireing squad. I think thier time is coming soon. Most of them should be tried for Treason. I think it should be on TV because a lot of us won’t be able to go where they are when they are Execuded. Every last one of them on what they have done to the Greatest President there ever was. Trump loves his Country and he Loves the People in this Great Country.

    1. You got that right! Biden is really a 3rd term Obama. Sickening if this prevails. Biden already is appointing Obama people to positions. Biden has no brain of his own he just does what he is told.

  9. ‘Can hardly wait for the 4 years of Biden/Harris regime to be over! I am in my mid 90’s and might not be here for the next election. It sure is a shame that the election was fraudulent…we ALL know that the Democrats cheated!!
    All of America will be sorry…they will become “prisoners” of the Left…Biden is only their puppet!! Mark my words!!
    God Save America!!

  10. What in the world is wrong with you Liberals? Biden is no more qualified to be President than my Cat. If you can’t see this, you are not qualified to be an American. I think your plan is to declare Joe mentally unstable, making Communist Kamala Harris President. Why in the world do you Liberals want America to become Communist? Oh, I forgot. You want complete control of everything we do and if we don’t do it? BAM, BAM, BAM.

    Please dear God in Heaven, I pray you won’t let this happen. I pray everyday that our beautiful country is sound, free from fear, and we keep the freedoms we have had all these years.

    1. Keep the faith, Susan. We know that God is in control and there is no better leader than One full of wisdom, love and mercy and completely able to guide us out of this quagmire and back on the straight and narrow. Man’s attempt to play god will fail miserably as it has in the past. The Dems have built their foundation on lies, wrongdoing and deception and such a weak foundation will not endure.

  11. Biden is a racist. Did you really expect something different. Besides he won’t be president. Cheaters never win!!!

    1. are we going to put Joe and Ho where they belong if these Judges get it wrong, he cannot be my president, he will help hell get its quota

  12. this countrys gone to hell the crooks in gov get to remaine crooked biden obama clintons !they worship them thugs that get taken out by the police trying to protecting themselves from attack ! democrats honor them they dont care for the inocent take out by these thugs! whats wrong with thgis country?

  13. Unfortuanatly nothing will ever be done about the demonrats and Biden andObama . Trump should have fired CHRIS WRAY the swamp in the DOJ . There is still time but for some reason trump wont take care of the problem .

  14. Hahaha, Biden is giving a big middle finger to all those left wingers who thought they got him elected. Actually it was more likely Obama/Hillary and the gang Biden is now re-appointing to fill key positions in his cabinet (so long as they can pull off rigging the election) who got him elected and will still control the government. In a way it’s hilarious that Bernie Sanders thinks he has any say-so after selling out to Hillary in the last election.

  15. Well here’s another fine mess for 2020, Biden and the swamp will be back. Obama is coming back so is all the slime with him, the Clinton’s, Polosi, Schumer, AOC, the two muslims, ug Oma, and whats their name, cannot remember muslims names, Soros China, etc,etc. Oh I forgot we a a VP who does her work on her knees. Senile, dumb, crook, China lover $$$ Biden. The 2020 is cursed just look at what we are going thru and it ain’t over yet.God bless my conservative friends all over the U.S. God Bless our President Donald Trump.

  16. Election fraud is VERY difficult to PROVE, especially when you have already counted the ballots and destroyed the ballot envelopes that are the proof. This is what they have already done but the Republicans are trying to uphold and prove this, enough so as to prove this fraud. Pray this happens before Biden is allowed to take office. We all KNOW they stole the election, we just have to prove it in a court of law.

  17. It is really difficult to imagine that thousands of people in the United States would either vote for those wanting to destroy our country or join in the voter fraud. . . . . They will have to suffer like the rest of us . . . TAke a quick look at what the Chinese, Russian, etc., people have been going through for decades. . . . And compare it to our freedoms here in America ! ! ! Please do not do this to our Country! ! ! PLEASE Abe one of us that fights to keep us FREE ! ! !

  18. We all know this election was stolen! And—— we all know who was behind it! Obutthead stold TWO elections using the hammer/ scorecard sofware. Anyone who does not believe that needs a reality check! Why do you think Obutthead is out there shooting off his mouth now, reiterating his racist b.s., and slamming the Hispanic voters, Christians, Trump supporters? He wants a race war going on so HE can step in and take over” to save the country” because Biden is inept at best, and Harris is a “ wild card” that may not conform! Trump won hands down, and it WILL be proven! Biden will NEVER be the legitimate president, and by his putting all of the Obama cabinet people back in tells me obama is setting up the take over!! Plot going as planned! We cannot let that happen! We have to fight tooth and nail to save our President Trump and our nation! Never give up, never give in! This is OUR country, we cannot allow it to fall into the hands of the destroyers!!!

  19. Im sick of black whinning creatures too !!
    Get jobs .. stop looking for handouts ..Lazy !!!
    This Country that you hate gave you alot of free stuff . They are just jealous that white people make something of themselves ..

  20. The next time Hiding Biden goes into his basement we should fill it with quick drying concrete. He stole the election, He is buddy buddy with the Chinese , wants us to be energy dependent again , wants to move jobs overseas & wants an agenda that makes America last.

  21. WE the PEOPLE need an HONEST PRESIDENT at the head of OUR COUNTRY !!! BUY-DEN ( BIDEN, (YOU & I know HE has been PURCHASED, so the spelling of the NAME is CORRECT & PROPER)) !!! BUT FOLKES let ME TELL YOU a BIG SECRET the ONE that is in CHARGE, HE (SLEEPY JOE is 2nd in COMMAND !! NUMBER ONE is NON OTHER than the GUY from KENYA, the CHICAGO THUG, MR. SOCILEST HIM SELF), YOU ALL know HIS NAME I DON’T need 2 SPELL it out, DO I ???? BESIDES it is a NASTY WORD & I WON’T SAY IT !!!!! ALSO KNOWN AS the WORST & MOST DISHONEST PRESIDENT the COUNTRY has EVER had, (WE the PEOPLE will FEEL HIS DISHONSTY for DECADES to COME) !!!! HE is EVEN WORSE than ONE W. J. CLINTON the DARLING of ARKANSAS !!!!!!

  22. Oh!!! wow Bernie and that useless Clyburn is upset at sleepy joe. Serves them right because you two are going to get screwed. biden and harris need to be in jail or better yet have their citizenship revoked and ICE then escorts them out of this country.
