US President-elect Joe Biden has appointed an all-female senior press team, in what his office claims is a first in the country’s history.

The team will be led by Kate Bedingfield, former deputy campaign communications director for Mr Biden.

Jen Psaki, who was President Barack Obama’s White House communications director, will be press secretary.

Mr Biden has promised to build a diverse administration that reflects the country.

Following his election win, Mr Biden has been unveiling his first choices for top cabinet positions.

Last week, he said his selection is a team that reflects the fact that America is back.

He added that his team would keep the country safe and secure while leading the world.

He is set to be sworn into office on 20th January.
