The White House hopes that Neera Tandon will have a higher bar of citizenship and engagement

Washington: The White House has said that it expects Neera Tandon to have a higher bar of citizenship and engagement when Indian-American policy experts join the Biden administration, as she heads the Office of Management and Budget His nomination was supported.
Tandon, 50, is facing a tough time to confirm his nomination against several previous legislators on his own Twitter, including those from his own Democratic party.
“When Neera Tandon testified a few weeks ago, she apologized for her previous comments and said she would join an administration which, as we have noted here, expected a higher bar of citizenship and engagement, Whether it’s on social media or in person, “White House press secretary Jane Saki told reporters at her daily news conference on Thursday.
“And we certainly hope he meets that bar,” Saki said.
Tandon’s nomination is under threat because of his hundreds of tweets against several Republican and Democratic senators, who have now vowed to vote against him during the Senate confirmation.
Tandon reportedly deleted more than 1,000 tweets before his confirmation process began. He apologized to the senators earlier this month during his confirmation hearing.
“The President (Joe Biden) nominated Neera Tandon because she is qualified, because she is experienced, because she has a record of working with people who agree and disagree with her, and she has decades of experience , “Said Sasaki.
“”, She has lived her own experience, as the daughter of a single parent and someone who at some point benefits from food stamps.
“She will bring a new approach to the role. That is why they nominated her for the job and why we are fighting to confirm it,” said the White House press secretary.
If confirmed by the 100-member Senate, Tanden would become a person of color at the head of the federal agency drafting the US government’s annual budget.
Meanwhile, The Hill newspaper reported that Tandon may be out of the race early Friday.
“The struggle to garner support for a longtime Democratic ally, whose combative Twitter posts have been criticized, reflects a misunderstanding made by the White House and its chief of staff, Ron Clann,” new York Times Reported.
