Joe Biden, At NASA Meet, Indian-Americans Are Taking Over The USA
US President Joe Biden said on Thursday that Indian-Americans are ruling the country, pointing to the deployment of many Indian-Americans in his administration. In less than 50 days since taking office, Joe Biden has appointed at least 55 Indian-Americans to top positions, ranging from his speechwriter at NASA to postings in every department of the government.
Recently, during a virtual conversation with NASA scientists involved in the historic landing of the Perceivers rover on Mars, Joe Biden said, “Indian-Americans are ruling the country… You (Swati Mohan), my Vice President ( Kamala Harris), my speech writer (Vinay Reddy)…”
Former President Trump, seen in old colors, said he will not form a new party, will bring the Republican Party back to power
Indian-American scientist Swati Mohan is leading the control operations, navigation and guidance of NASA’s Mars 2020 mission. Joe Biden, who was sworn in as the 46th President of the US on January 20, has appointed at least 55 Indian-Americans in the administration. History has been created by giving appointment to important posts. These do not include Vice President Kamala Harris, as that is an elected office. Neera Tandon is also not included in this list, who a day ago withdrew her nomination as director of the White House Office on Management and Budget.
About half of them are women, and many of them are stationed in the White House. So far, the Obama-Biden administration (2009-2017) held the record for hiring the most Indians. After that, the previous Donald Trump administration was not far behind, and during that time an Indian-American was given cabinet rank and appointed to the National Security Council for the first time.
For the first time in the first 50 days, the Joe Biden administration has appointed such a large number of Indian-Americans. Last week, Dr Vivek Murthy has been tested before a Senate committee as the US Surgeon General, while Vanitha Gupta’s confirmation hearing as Associate Attorney General in the Department of Justice is also set.
Eminent philanthropist and Indiaspora founder M. Rangaswamy told news agency PTI, “It is very impressive to see how many Indian-Americans have come into the field of civil service… I feel proud to see my community grow.” …”
