Our very own Pete Buttigieg, will most certainly form part of Joe Biden’s Cabinet with various sources saying that it is not a question of if, but where he lands.
Pete Buttigieg, whose father was Maltese, was one of the candidates for the Democratic nomination for the Presidency, dropping out of the race to then publicly endorse Biden shortly afterwards.
Most major news networks are in fact, quoting Buttigieg as being part of Biden’s transition team, which shows just how much he is trusted by the President-Elect.
The most likely choice right now appears to be Secretary of Veterans Affairs. Though his camp has been gunning for UN Ambassador as a way to burnish Pete’s self-taught foreign policy chops, Biden will likely keep foreign policy jobs exclusively for longtime associates.
Can this mean that Biden or Harris will be including Malta in their travel plans in the near future? Either way, let’s hope they can learn how to properly pronounce his surname!
