WASHINGTON – Today, the Congressional Black Caucus issued the following statement after reports announced that Ambassador Susan Rice would be nominated to direct the White House Domestic Policy Council.

“The Congressional Black Caucus applauds President-elect Joe Biden’s nomination of Ambassador Susan Rice to run the White House Domestic Policy Council to develop, coordinate and oversee implementation of his commitment to build this country back better.

“A tenacious leader and a careful diplomat, Ambassador Rice’s experiences managing global public health, ensuring America’s security, and leading global negotiations on human rights, security and climate issues, will ensure her readiness on day one and success in the years that follow.

“The Congressional Black Caucus has a long, tremendous working relationship and partnership from Ambassador Rice’s nomination as the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, to her work as National Security Advisor under former President Barack Obama. The granddaughter of immigrants and a descendent of enslaved Americans, Ambassador Rice will be a forceful and tireless champion for racial equity, social justice and equal opportunity, equality and equity.

“Especially at this critical juncture in history, the Congressional Black Caucus trusts Ambassador Rice to get this country back on track.”

Ambassador Susan Rice is an American diplomat, policy advisor, and former public official who served as the 27th United States ambassador to the United Nations from 2009 to 2013 and as the 24th United States national security advisor from 2013 to 2017.
