Biden to replace Joint Chiefs of Staff
April 19, 2023

President Joe Biden is reportedly considering several high-profile candidates to replace the Joint Chiefs of Staff appointed by his predecessor, Donald Trump.

With the stakes high, the contenders for this coveted position include some of the most distinguished names in the military – Air Force Gen. C.Q. Brown, Marine Corps Gen. David Berger, Army Gen. Laura Richardson, Army Gen. Randy George, Army Gen. Andrew Poppas, Navy Adm. Lisa Franchetti, Navy Adm. Samuel Paparo, Gen. Jacqueline Von Ovost, Gen. David Allvin, Gen. Eric Smith, and Lt. Gen. Karsten Heckl.

The selection of a new Joint Chiefs of Staff is an important decision for President Biden, as he seeks to implement his foreign policy agenda and address ongoing military challenges. The decision on who will lead the Joint Chiefs of Staff is likely to be a closely watched one, with many expecting the Biden administration to make significant changes to the military’s leadership in the coming years. The new leadership team will also be responsible for overseeing the continued drawdown of U.S. forces in Afghanistan and navigating tensions with countries like Iran and North Korea.

Whoever is selected for the role will be tasked with overseeing the US military during a time of significant global challenges, including the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, increasing tensions with China and Russia, and ongoing conflicts in the Middle East.

It is unclear when President Biden will make his final decision on the Joint Chiefs of Staff appointments. However, sources say that he is taking the process seriously and is consulting with a range of experts and advisors. The President has emphasized the importance of having a diverse leadership team, and all of the top contenders would bring unique skills and experiences to the role.
