President Joe Biden has made former President Barack Obama happy by appointing one of his top former officials as the U.S. ambassador to Japan.
Per Breitbart, “the Biden administration has appointed former Obama chief of staff and Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel as U.S. ambassador to Japan.”
According to the report:
Biden floated the idea of sending Emanuel to Japan in May after initial plans to add the Chicagoan to his administration were shot down by unhappy left-wingers. But an ambassadorship was not Biden’s first idea to reward Emanuel. Biden initially wanted to appoint Emanuel to be secretary of transportation, but his performance during the Laquan McDonald shooting soured progressives on Emanuel.
Emanuel was criticized in Chicago for attempting to keep news of the police-involved shooting of the black teen under wraps as he prepared to stand for reelection to the city’s top job in 2015.
