WASHINGTON (Reuters) – President Joe Biden plans to nominate Caroline Kennedy, daughter of the late President John F. Kennedy, as the US ambassador to Australia, CNN reported on Friday, citing three unidentified people familiar with the process.
The White House declined to comment on the report.
Kennedy endorsed Biden’s presidential bid in 2020 in February of that year, writing that the former vice president was more prepared for the job than his rivals.
Kennedy previously served as the United States Ambassador to Japan under former Democratic President Barack Obama. Kennedy, the first US ambassador to Japan, was one of the first and prominent supporters of Obama in his initial quest for the presidency in 2008, and also campaigned for him.
