The Heat: U.S. politics

The Heat

Three weeks after the election, Joe Biden announced his top choices for key government positions as he prepares to become the 46th U.S. President.

On Monday, a key government agency acknowledged Biden as the apparent winner of the U.S. presidential election, giving his team access to government resources and funding. U.S. President Donald Trump is still not conceding the election.

The move comes at a critical time for the United States, with COVID-19 cases skyrocketing out of control. To date, more than 258,000 Americans have died, with cases topping 12 million. CGTN’s White House Correspondent Nathan King has more.
