US President Joe Biden has pledged to fire any employee who disrespects a colleague, saying that he will work to restore respect to the US government, especially since this matter has been missing during the past 4 years.
Biden’s threat came during a hypothetical swearing-in ceremony in the White House dining room for about a thousand political aides appointed to his administration, and said, “I’m not kidding when I say if you work with me and hear you treat another colleague with disrespect, I promise, I’ll fire you immediately.”
President Biden warns his incoming presidential appointees: “If you’re ever working with me and I hear you treating another colleague with disrespect, talking down to someone, I will fire you on the spot … Everybody is entitled to be treated with decency https://t.co/nd761dAKvApic.twitter.com/LJwJ46xKBi

He stressed that: “There are no exceptions or reservations, everyone has the right to be treated with respect and dignity,” adding: “We will be judged on whether we have restored integrity and competence in this government or not. I badly need your help.”
