Florida Senator Marco Rubio lashed out at Biden for his cabinet picks, saying that they will put America on a big course backward.

He said that he has no desire to return to the America that was dependent on China.

As The Hill reported:

On Tuesday, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) sharply criticized several President-elect Joe Biden’s intended Cabinet nominees, calling them “caretakers of America’s decline” and suggesting he might vote against their confirmation next year.

In a tweet Tuesday morning, the Florida Republican suggested that the president-elect’s nominees “went to Ivy League schools, have strong resumes, attend all the right conferences & will be polite & orderly caretakers of America’s decline.”

“I support American greatness,” the senator continued, adding: “And I have no interest in returning to the ‘normal’ that left us dependent on China.”



Rubio’s remarks come a day after Biden announced that he would nominate his longtime aide Antony Blinken to lead the State Department. Simultaneously, former assistant Secretary of State Linda Thomas-Greenfield would be his pick to serve as U.S. ambassador to the United Nations. Both roles require Senate confirmation.

The Florida senator, who is one of a handful of GOP senators to acknowledge Biden as the victor of the 2020 election, previously ran against President Trump in the 2016 GOP primary and is seen as a potential contender the 2024 Republican nomination.
