Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., blasted Joe Biden's nominees for his Cabinet on Tuesday, indicating he won't vote to confirm them if Biden eventually is seated as president.

Biden introduced members of his intended national security team Tuesday, but before they took the stage Rubio tweeted:

"Biden’s cabinet picks went to Ivy League schools,have strong resumes,attend all the right conferences & will be polite & orderly caretakers of America's decline I support American greatness And I have no interest in returning to the "normal" that left us dependent on China"

Biden's first round of nominees on Tuesday were all part of his foreign policy and national security team. He said it was a message to the world that "America is back."

They included Antony Blinken for secretary of state, Alejandro Mayorkas for secretary of homeland security, Avril Haines for director of national intelligence, Linda Thomas-Greenfield for ambassador to the United Nations, Jake Sullivan for national security adviser, and John Kerry for special presidential envoy for climate.

"I hope these outstanding nominees receive a prompt hearing and that we can work across the aisle in good faith to move forward for the country," Biden said as he introduced the group. "Let's begin that work to heal and unite America."

Rubio's Ivy League reference may be an allusion to the fact that he has said Republicans intend to focus on working-class voters.
