Biden ' s transition team has already named its Secretary of State-to-be, filling the key post with Antony Blinken, who was a top-ranking official in the Obama administration and is known as a strong backer of multilateralist policies .

Biden did, however, acknowledge that he was open to appointing Republicans to his administration as a sign of unifying the country. During his Tuesday interview, Biden also spurned the recent criticisms that he was trying to recreate an Obama White House by appointing seasoned Washington figures.

Pompeo specifically criticized the Obama administration’s pursuit of the Iran nuclear deal, which provided cash and relief from sanctions to a struggling a regime in exchange for a delay in its uranium enrichment program, saying it “had chosen to give them an awful lot of that thing, money. We’ve chosen to deny them.”

The Trump administration withdrew from the agreement in 2018 as one of its signature foreign policy moves, reimposing crippling economic sanctions and escalating tensions with the regime.

Iranian president Hassan Rouhani greeted Biden’s election as an opportunity for the U.S. to “compensate for past mistakes” by rejoining the agreement.

“Now, an opportunity has come up for the next U.S. administration to compensate for past mistakes and return to the path of complying with international agreements through respect of international norms,” the state-run IRNA news agency quoted Rouhani as saying.

Other Republicans have already criticized Biden’s picks.

“What a group of corporatists and war enthusiasts—and Big Tech sellouts,” Senator Josh Hawley (R., Mo.) wrote on Twitter of Biden’s foreign policy team. “Take Tony Blinken. He’s backed every endless war since the Iraq invasion. Now he works for Big Tech and helps companies break into China.”
