It became known who can become the US Secretary of Defense




Newly elected US President Joe Biden is considering retired General Lloyd Austin as one of the candidates for the post of Secretary of Defense.





This was reported by Axios, citing informed sources.

The list of candidates also includes:

Former Secretary of Homeland Security Jay Johnson:
Senator Tammy Duckworth;
former Pentagon official Michelle Flournoy.

Flurna’s candidacy was considered the most likely, but sources say Biden’s team, experiencing some pressure, may choose an African American for a leading role in the cabinet.

If the choice falls on Austin, he will become the first black secretary of defense in American history.

Austin is the former head of US Central Command. He retired from the army in 2016.

We will remind you, Biden chose Tony Blinken as the US Secretary of State.

In addition, Joe Biden offered the position of White House chief of staff to Ron Kline, who had previously served as his adviser.
