Linda Thomas-Greenfield, UN Ambassador nomineeThomas-Greenfield, who has worked for 35 years in foreign service across four continents, said she likes to put a"cajun spin" on diplomacy."I called it gumbo diplomacy.

Updates during President Joe Biden's first 100 days in office.
What good will that do he still has to talk occasionally...the daily briefings going 2 Joey B, is actually hilarious, u people who allowed this ill person to lead a country should be totally ashamed, he can't even speak unless it is written 4 him what kind of leader is that!!! About time. Boooo WHO THE HELLS THIS IDIOT
Ask Joe who built the cages. Lmao. Bruh Nice one for the new president elect America is back, and no one will stop the President elected, Biden. Mr Trump, you are not a King, rather you are a looser. Some decency and sanity coming back to United States after 4years of comedy in the White House 😂 😂 Does the GOP realize that by claiming ballot fraud in multiple states, they also discredit every win they made in every ticket. Why would they give up such a win for the sake of a delusional sociopath who cares nothing about them❓ electionresult2020 CommonSense JoeBiden
At least someone will be reading them now who doesn’t need someone else to explain them in much smaller words or struggle to keep the attention of the damn COMMANDER IN CHIEF! Why. He has won nothing yet, and the way it's looking, he probably won't either It doesn't make sense if it's formal or informal
Bout time Finally a mature and competent administration stepping in.Twitter will start being boring tho, since Trump won't be tweeting his rants as POTUS! Biden/Harris will actually be focusing on America!Let's get to work JoeBiden BidenTransition FightBackForAmerica KamalaHarrisVP That means all the masters that are not elected get to see whats up first hand. Good job
My President 👈🏽 Haha I saw it Coming! WooooooooW i co teraz xd Thank God we now have real president and real qualifiy cabin not kiss ass lap dogs Not true Another lie from CNN False A lie False In 2012 Obama won 689 of the 3,141 counties in the US. That is 22% of the counties for a total of 65 Million votes. In 2020 Biden won 477 of the 3,141 counties which would be 15% of all US counties for a total of 79 Million votes. 13M more votes but 212 less counties? FRAUD!
Is this before or after his Ensure smoothie Great news. This means someone will actually read the report and decide if any actions are necessary. Nice BidenHalo At least now someone will be reading the daily briefings Should’ve been happening 20 days ago ❤️❤️❤️👍👍 So.. what we are hearing that Pres-Elect Biden will be receiving daily briefings while Current Pres Trump ignores them.. as he has for the past 4 years? OK Got it.
How sad that this even became a “thing”. The very final nail in the coffin we will get unless we get trumps official succession At least now someone might actually read them. He’s not President elect, JoeBiden he’s result from rigged election. We should call him Fake elect after Fake Media. This can only be given officially on 6 January 2021 !!! If Biden wins 😀
And he will actually read it! In a world that is in turmoil thank goodness at least some sort of sanity might return to America when he's gone! How can the world believe in the US when a leader spews out false facts without first making sure it's true! Trump threatened the fundamentals of what USA stood for!
I think the People gave that permission on Nov 7. Long overdue Hey Joe. Make sure you don't push the wrong button. You know...the thing. Good! No somebody is going to actually read it!! Swamp is back to destroy American freedom You mean a guy that will actually read it, as opposed to a guy who wants pictures and colors.
Someone should read them. Definitely won’t be DT Finally someone will be reading it! I follow back immediately try me Blessed 🙏 keeptalkingGR 1st one in 4 years not to be in cartoon format. Stimulus now! That's the briefing The fact that Biden will be getting daily briefings makes me feel safer already. Biden is not yet acting president and the warmonger Right Wing of the Dem party has started its bloody preaching against China. So we had a choice between a quasi fascist Republican and a warmongering Right wing, where Ms Pelosi will loose her latest charm. And Biden ?
