US Secretary of State Antony Blinken says the Biden administration is working “expeditiously” to appoint a US special envoy to monitor and combat antisemitism.

“We’re moving expeditiously with the envoy to combat antisemitism. I hope that’s before the Senate very, very soon,” he says, when pressed on the appointment during a House Foreign Affairs Committee hearing.
