Sanders looking for top leaders’ support
On Tuesday, CNN reported that Bernie Sanders has begun to increase a campaign to become Joe Biden’s Cabinet’s Labor Secretary and is also looking for the support of top labor leaders. Furthermore, Bernie’s action revealed after intensified racing over the strong Cabinet position from inside the labor movement.
On Tuesday, a long-time official labor leader described to CNN that Bernie Sanders has personally named union chiefs asking for their support, but his proposal has faced a variety of reactions. The senior labor leader said that Richard Trumka (AFL-CIO President) favors Marty Walsh (Boston Mayor) for that job.
The senior labor leader continued that, at the same time, Andy Levin (Michigan Rep.), a Democrat who is a well-known progressive, has even made a base of backing among union leaderships, including American Communications Workers.
Bernie Sanders, in a statement and a public interview with a media outlet, CNN, before his election, spoke about his wish to lead support from inside the Senate to a determined suite of progressive legislation to Joe Biden’s Cabinet.
The President-elect’s Cabinet decisions originate when Donald Trump has yet to accept despite other networks and CNN expecting Joe Biden’s victory. Furthermore, the administration even has so far rejected to sign off on the key document required to officially start Joe Biden’s transition procedure, while Donald Trump continues to claim election scam illogically.
