The crisis of President-elect Joe Biden becoming director of the Office of Administration and Budget (OMB) will spur a globalist policy that will lead to job losses in the United States, Arkansas former governor Mike Huckabee warned Tuesday.
Biden’s interim team announced Monday that Neera Tanden, president of the Liberal Brain Trust in the Center for American Progress, had been elected head of OMB.
In “America’s Newsroom,” Huckabee is a “classic liberal” and “what to expect from the Biden administration.”
“If people want to go back to a time when Americans lost their jobs in China, Mexico, Canada, Vietnam and other countries around the world, they will love Neera Tanden,” he added. – It will be exactly what the doctor ordered.
If confirmed, Tanden, a loyalist to Hillary Clinton, would be the first woman of color to head the OMB, which is responsible for preparing and implementing the federal government’s spending plan. But there is a narrow path to affirmation: Biden’s announcement has sparked a fierce setback on the part of both Republicans and progressives.
Tanden was an outspoken critic of Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders and clashed online with progressives over political differences.
Sanders did not react publicly to Biden’s decision, but his former national press secretary tweeted about criticism of the selection.

“Everything toxic that lies in the corporate Democratic Party is embodied in Neera Tanden,” Briahna Joy Gray tweeted, sharing a video in which Tanden speaks to everyone against Medicare.
“He managed to crack pretty much everyone,” Huckabee said. “A lot of advanced people don’t like him because he’s essentially a wholly owned subsidiary of big business.

– But a lot of other people don’t like it because [of] extreme positions on economic issues; he wants higher taxes, he wants America to be pushed into a kind of background in the world and to sign up for everything with the Paris climate agreements that put us in a very difficult position, ”Huckabee continued. “These are some things that are, say, less than overwhelmingly popular, even in your own party.
The fate of Tanden, as well as Biden’s other cabinet candidates, depends on two Georgian Senate elections that determine whether Republicans retain their majority in the upper chamber. If the Democrats win both races, the upper chamber will be split 50-50 and elected Vice President Kamala Harris may cast a tie.
