According to sources, Joe Biden, the president of the United States of America, has chosen his candidate to handle the coronavirus situation in the country. It is Gene Sperling, the American economist. He will be looking after the relief plan of the administration of the president if he gets approved for the post. Sources also confirmed that the role of Gene Sperling will be announced by the White House. The announcements are said to be carried out this Monday.
Gene Sperling To Execute The Covid Relief Bill?
The 62-year-old economist was a part of the economic teams of the administrations of the two American presidents, Clinton, and Barack Obama. He was also taken under consideration for the post of director in the office of the management department. The first pick of president Joe Biden was Neera Tanden. But she could not make it due to her failure in securing enough support on the floor of the Senate.
Gene Sperling is now rumored to be made the in-charge of the coronavirus relief task force. This is one of the positions of the White House. He will have to execute the provisions mentioned in the coronavirus relief bill. The bill, the total amount of which happens to be 1.9 trillion USD, was signed recently.
Currently, economist Gene Sperling lives in the city of Los Angeles situated in the state of California. There is no doubt that he will be an asset to the White House and to the post if he gets it. The biggest reason for this is because he comes with a lot of experience in the policies related to the economy of the country. He was the National Economic Council head for two American presidents. Gene Sperling has also been one of the top advisers of the Department of Treasury under the term of former president Barack Obama.
