I’ve had the privilege of serving with President-elect Joe Biden over the last decade. He’s the leader we need at this critical moment in history. I’ll be honored to join his NSC team under the leadership of @jakejsullivan . 12 days!
I’m thrilled and honored to team up with @SafiraLeaf to lead the MENA directorate at the National Security Council. Barbara is one our best and toughest diplomats. 26 hours! ??
It’s the greatest honor to serve again on these historic grounds. Thank you for the kind words over the past few weeks. We’ll all do our best on behalf of the American people. ??
Here’s how this scene was viewed live in Australia. One of America’s closest and most dependable allies. Rendered speechless. Just watch.
I served for two years in the Trump administration. There’s never coherent planning on anything because Trump himself eschews process and reacts to whatever is in the news. It’s all chaos and spasms—and it won’t change so long as he’s president.
With everything going on don’t forget that this week saw the first direct confrontation between regular US and Russian ground forces ever with seven Americans injured when Russians rammed their vehicle. Why do Russians feel so emboldened?
For the United States of America to have the worst #Covid_19 trajectory in the ENTIRE world (even accounting for questionable data from China) represents a catastrophic failure of national leadership. The warnings were all there. There’s no excuse.
Nothing to see here. Just a Russian military aircraft landing at JFK with 60 tons of medical supplies to support America’s #COVID19 response. A propaganda bonanza as our own government shrinks from America’s leadership role in a global crisis.
