Joe Biden says he wants to appoint the first African American woman to Senate. But there's a catch - and another catch actually.
First of all, Presidents do not appoint Senators. Senators are elected by popular vote in the state they represent.
Joe Biden's second mistake is that there was already a first African American woman in the Senate. Her name is Carol Moseley Braun and she was a Democratic Senator for Illinois.
Based on her Wiki, "she was the first female African-American Senator, the first African-American U.S. Senator for the Democratic Party, the first woman to defeat an incumbent U.S. Senator in an election, and the first female Senator from Illinois. She was the only female U.S. Senator from Illinois until Tammy Duckworth who became the U.S. Senator from Illinois in January 2017."Source: en
