Joe Biden unveiled a slate of top cabinet picks on Nov 24, including the first Latino to helm the Department of Homeland Security.
Biden also shared a video along with his tweet, through which he unveiled the names of his cabinet picks. Biden named Antony Blinken as Secretary of State and Linda Thomas-Greenfield as ambassador to the U.N. He picked Cuban-born Alejandro Mayorkas, a former deputy secretary of DHS, as a Secretary of Homeland Security. He further picked Avril Haines, a former top CIA official and deputy national security adviser for director of national intelligence. She will also make history if confirmed by the Senate.

Bernie Sanders after the Democratic presidential primary. Jake Sullivan will join the White House team as Biden's national security adviser.
