President-elect Joe Biden says that he’s decided his choice for Treasury secretary and that he’ll make the announcement either just before or after Thanksgiving – calling his choice “someone who I think will be accepted by all elements of the Democratic Party.”
The president-elect also reaffirmed, “I am not going to shut down the economy. Period. I’m going to shut down the virus. That’s what I’m going to shut down. I’ll say it again - no national shutdown. No national shutdown.” He added that shutting down the economy “would be counterproductive."
