Tapper will interview the former vice president and the current California senator in Wilmington, Del., Biden’s hometown, from the same theater in which he has announced some of his top administration officials. 

Biden’s first interview as president-elect was conducted by NBC News’s Lester Holt last week.

Biden this week named the top members of his economics team, which will focus on reviving the U.S. economy struck by the coronavirus pandemic. The president-elect has said developing a COVID-19 relief package would be one of his priorities when he enters office in January. 

Last week, Biden announced his nominees for his foreign policy and national security officials, and on Sunday, his team declared he will have an all-female White House senior communications team. 

Many of the picsk are dependent on Senate approval, and it’s unclear which party will control the upper chamber after two runoffs in Georgia on Jan. 5. If either Republican senator wins reelection, the Senate will remain in GOP control, but if both Democratic candidates win, the Senate would be split 50–50, with Harris set to cast tie-breaking votes for Democrats.
