Joe Biden nominates widow of late Senator John McCain for important post

US President Joe Biden has nominated Cindy McCain, the widow of the late Senator John McCain, to become the United States' representative to the United Nations food and agricultural agencies, according to the White House.

And a statement issued by the White House revealed that the US president has the right to choose 17 people to take over key tasks, according to the Russian Sputnik agency.

The statement said that US President Biden nominated Cindy McCain for this position with the rank of ambassador, and Cindy McCain, expressed her support for Biden in the presidential elections held last November.

The statement confirmed that the president also nominated Jack Markle, the former governor of Delaware, for the position of US representative to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development.

On the other hand, US President Joe Biden announced his administration's plans to address crime and violence using firearms.

During a speech at the White House, he said, "Crime rises historically during the summer. As we tend to open the doors after the pandemic, there may be a higher than usual rise in crime during the summer."

Many of Biden's proposed solutions include strengthening gun controls - but the president also wants to raise the bar for police performance.

Through executive actions and working with lawmakers, he wants to hold accountable firearms dealers who violate federal laws, invest in community violence programs, and expand programs to help formerly incarcerated people obtain jobs and reintegrate them into their communities, among other reforms.
