President-elect Joe Biden says his presidency would not be ‘a third Obama term’ after announcing a slew of cabinet nominees that included many former Obama administration staffers. In his first sit-down interview since the election, Biden said the appointments reflected the spectrum of the American people and the Democratic party. ‘This is not a third Obama term. We face a totally different world than we faced in the Obama-Biden administration,’ he told NBC’s Lester Holt, adding that Donald Trump’s ‘America first’ approach meant ‘America alone’. He also said he would consider appointing a Republican in upcoming appointments.
