Susan Rice stepping down as Biden’s domestic policy adviser

On Monday, the White House confirmed that Susan Rice would be resigning as President Biden’s domestic policy advisor.

According to Politico, two sources familiar with the discussions stated that Neera Tanden, a senior advisor and staff secretary for President Biden, is being considered, among others, to replace Rice.

However, a high-ranking White House official separately informed the outlet that no decision on a replacement has been made, Fox News reported.

Biden is expected to announce his re-election campaign this week, and Rice’s resignation precedes the announcement.

Susan Rice played a key role in shaping and executing President Biden’s domestic policy priorities as the Director of the Domestic Policy Council, as stated on the White House website.

Her responsibilities included overseeing issues such as economic mobility, racial equity, healthcare, and immigration.

Before joining the Biden administration, Rice served as President Obama’s National Security Advisor and U.S. Permanent Representative to the United Nations from 2009-2017.

Additionally, she was a contributing opinion writer for the New York Times.
