Joe Biden promised unity and healing. And he promised it because he wanted America to know he was going to move us forward.
Except that was never his plan at all. Just take one look at his recent pick for Ambassador to Israel.
“Thomas Nides, the former State Department official who is reportedly President Joe Biden’s choice for U.S. Ambassador to Israel, shared anti-Trump conspiracy theories on Twitter, including the claim that Trump wanted to go to war with Iran,” according to a report from Breitbart News.

Nides “is all but certain to be the Biden administration’s next ambassador to Israel,” notes a local Israeli paper.
Per the Breitbart report:
Nides has a history of supporting left-wing policies on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, including attempting to stop Congress from defunding the anti-Israel United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), according to the Times of Israel, and trying to stop Congress from limiting funding to the UN Relief and Works Agency, viewed by critics as a pro-Palestinian institution, whose funding Trump eventually cut (and which the Biden administration is busy restoring).
He also retweeted former Obama advisor Ben Rhodes’s claim in 2019 that Trump was attempting to provoke Iran into a war. Rhodes was an architect of the Iran nuclear deal, and infamously boasted about feeding the media pro-deal propaganda.
So much for healing and unity.
