Indian-Americans taking over US, says Biden as they keep getting key positions
WASHINGTON: Indian-Americans are taking over the country, US Presi nt Joe Biden said on Thursday, referring to the high number of people from the community getting a place in his administration.
In less than 50 days of his presidency, Biden has appointed at least 55 Indian-Americans to key leadership positions in his administration ranging from his writer to the NASA, to almost every wing of the go nment.
"Indian-of-descent Americans (sic) are taking over the country. You (Swati Mohan), my Vice Presi nt (Kla Harris), my writer (Vinay Reddy)," Biden said in a virtual interaction with NASA scientists who were involved in the historic landing of Perseverance landing at Mars.
Indian-American scientist Swati Mohan leads the guidance, navigation, and control operations of NASA's Mars 2020 mission.
Biden, who was sworn in as the 46th presi nt of the United States on January 20, has created history by appointing at least 55 Indian-Americans to key positions in his administration. This does not include Vice Presi nt Kla Harris, which is an ed position, and Neera Tanden, who a day earlier withdrew her nomination from the position of Director of White House Office of Management and Budget.
Nearly half of them are women and a sizable number of them are working in the White House. So far, the Ob-Biden administration (2009-2017) has the distinction of appointing the largest number of Indian-Americans in any administration, the previous Donald Trump administration was not lagging far behind as it appointed the first ever Indian-American with a cabinet rank and inside the National Security Council.
The Biden administration has for the first time appointed such a large number of Indian-Americans in the first 50 days of his administration.
Indians wherever immigrate to, through out history, have always sought to improve the life of others, with their hard work, intelligence and positivity, kee in mind the sensibilities of the natives. That is why they
have always been welcomed.
we should stop fanticising over them, they are Americans now
Indian/Pakis living in USA and other western countries should stop giving their children names like HarSHIT, HarDICK, POOja, MehBOOB. Because it will cause them to get bullied. Give them normal English names like John, Joseph, Michael, Adam, Mary, Sarah.
Americans of INDIAN ORIGIN have advanced admirably in all fields all the while contributing to the society atlarge&the society is awarding this achievement a well EARNED accolade.
Missed feelings.. feeling proud while also realizing that our country could not make their dreams come true so they bailed. Also realizing that many are second generation Americans and have nothing to do with India except they were born to their parents.
Majority of Indians are going to US & UK because of reservation in India. They will never get an opportunity unless you have reservation.
Modi ji should invite him to India for an event nste Biden
This is the reason I and all my friends ved for Joe Biden and Kla Harris.
Whether Indian American consider themselves as Indian origin and serious about worrying for India's interest like Jews do for Israel is the big question.
Harvester of Sorrow
But many of these Indian Americans appointed at high level position are Anti Indians and have racist views ag inst Indians...they think Indian are inferior and they are superior..they have deep hatred for Indians so just because they are of Indian origin does not mean they will always help India and make pro Indian policies.
Always indians are prooved to be hard working and brilliant people where ever they are.
Once they got American passport, they become American. Why they are still called Indian-American? do they call other country born as like -American, Pakis-American?
Begng of the downfall of US.
Nothing for us to be proud -- the best brains of our country are not in India they are contributing to the growth of other countries .
these people won't help India. not sure why indians are happy. look at kla harris neice tweets
They don't owe India anything.
Indians are also the highest paid in USA. That clearly shows that Indians are way more educated and intelligent. But, that Kla Harris is not Indian, she is Jican. If, Kla Harris is Indian, will Biden call Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Vadra Italians ? No twoo rules Mr. Biden.
