Joe Biden fractures his foot while playing with his dog

Former Vice President Joe Biden's pick for Director of the U.S. Office of Management and Budget, Neera Tanden, is frantically deleting old tweets in anticipation of a close confirmation vote requiring Republican senators' support. Adeyemo was deputy chief of staff to Jack Lew when he was Treasury secretary and was the first chief of staff of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau under Elizabeth Warren.

Jared Bernstein and Heather Boushey, who handled Biden economic agenda during during his presidential campaign, are also expected to be named to the Council of Economic Advisers. Yellin will be the first female Treasury Secretary in the country's history going back to Alexander Hamilton in 1789.

On Sunday evening, President Donald Trump tweeted, "Get well soon!"

She said Ms. Yellen's leadership at the Federal Reserve and her knowledge of the markets make her highly regarded both in the worldwide financial community and among policymakers on both sides of the Capitol.

Yellen would be the first woman to run the Treasury Department. She would inherit an economy with still-high unemployment, escalating threats to small businesses and signs that consumers are retrenching as the pandemic restricts or discourages spending.

Neera Tanden, chief executive of the Center for American Progress think tank, would head the Office of Management and Budget.

"Biden did spend a good deal of time in the sun in his youth". She now serves as President and CEO of the Center for American Progress, an organization dedicated to advancing policies that increase opportunity for Americans.

Pili Tobar, who served as deputy director of America's Voice, an immigration reform advocacy group, will serve as her deputy. Starting with Bill Clinton in the 1990s, presidents kept on bank leaders appointed by their predecessors in an effort to de-politicise the bank. Tanden would be the first woman of color and the first South Asian woman in the role.

If confirmed, Tanden would be the first woman of color to head OMB.

Republicans now hold 50 seats for next session to the Democrats' 48.

Tanden, a veteran of Hillary Clinton's 2008 presidential campaign who later became one of the architects of Obamacare, had been an outspoken opponent of Republicans' recent campaign to appoint Justice Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court, calling the process "illegitimate".

She's a former member of the Obama-Biden council and now serves as Dean of the Princeton School of Public and International Affairs. She has previously been confirmed by the Senate as a member of the CEA in 2009.

Former US president Barack Obama appointed her as vice chair of the Federal Reserve in 2010, before elevating her to chair in 2013, replacing fellow Jewish economist Ben Bernanke.
