Journalist Aaron Maté discusses foreign policy for the incoming Biden administration

Aaron Maté, host of “Pushback with Aaron Maté,” said some of President-elect Joe Biden’s Cabinet picks indicate he is “continuing with the hawkish playbook” that has been consistent throughout his career.

Maté, who is also a contributor at The Nation, pointed to Biden tapping Antony Blinken to be his secretary of State, and Michèle Flournoy as his potential pick for Defense secretary.

Both positions would require Senate confirmation.
