Biden promotes official with highly controversial past

President Joe Biden has just decided to promote a highly controversial official.

The official, according to Fox News, is Tyler Cherry.

Cherry, previously, worked under U.S. Secretary of the Interior Deb Haaland for the past three years. Now, Biden has made him the associate communication director at the White House.

Biden, however, is now facing some serious criticism for this promotion.

Cherry's background

Fox reports that Cherry has sparked controversy for "social media posts attacking police, criticizing Republicans, and supporting the anti-Israel movement."

For example, amid the 2015 riots that followed the death of Freddie Gray in police custody, Cherry wrote on social media, "Praying for #Baltimore, but praying even harder for an end to a capitalistic police state motivated by explicit and implicit racial biases."

Cherry, according to Fox, has also called for the abolishment of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). This is the agency that looks to stop illegal immigration and related crimes.

Fox also reports:

Cherry was also posting support for "Palestine" on social media in 2014 during the Gaza War in which Palestinian forces, led by the radical Iran-bakced terrorist group Hamas, launched hundreds of rockets into Israel, sparking a forceful Israeli response that involved airstrikes and a ground invasion.

Finally, Fox calls attention to Cheery's "history of criticizing Republicans."

Looking forward

Politico reports:

Former Interior communications director Tyler Cherry has landed a new gig leading climate communications in the Biden White House. After more than three years at Interior working for Secretary Deb Haaland, Cherry started last week as an associate communications director at the White House.

To be clear, Cherry has been made an associate communications director at the White House, and, in this capacity, he will focus on communications related to the political left's climate agenda.

Cherry, according to Politico, is going to be taken over for Maria Michalos, who is heading to law school. "Maria Michalos, who has held the post for more than a year, plans to step down later this month and start at Yale Law School in August," Politico reports.

The outlet further notes:

Cherry takes over as the top White House climate communications aide in a critical time for President Joe Biden’s administration. The Biden team is sprinting to roll out big-ticket environmental and climate priorities this year as the November presidential election looms and the administration aims to shore up its policies.

This will be something to watch out for as the 2024 election draws nearer.
