US President-elect, Joe Biden, has introduced a slate of veteran diplomats and policy-makers, who will make up his national security and foreign policy team, saying: “America is back, ready to lead the world.”

Biden, 78, presented his picks for secretary of state, national security advisor, homeland security secretary, intelligence chief, UN ambassador and climate change envoy.

US President-elect, Joe Biden

Biden said that after he is inaugurated on January 20 and Donald Trump leaves the White House, the United States will “once again sit at the head of the table, ready to confront their adversaries and not reject their allies.”

Biden’s remarks came after Trump suffered further setbacks in his efforts to overturn the results of the election with unsubstantiated claims of fraud.

Pennsylvania and Nevada certified the November 3 election results on Tuesday, a day after the state of Michigan did so, a move which triggered the General Services Administration (GSA) to launch the transition process.

As more members of his Republican Party came out demanding an end to the impasse, Trump signed off on the GSA move, effectively admitting defeat.

The 74-year-old Trump later attended a traditional Thanksgiving turkey-pardoning event at the White House.
