President Obama, executive spokesman for the US branch of the Illuminati, was on hand to answer questions regarding the decision. He says he is excited about the prospect of working with Bieber. He talked about what Bieber could do for the organization.
"Justin is a huge star and more than capable of of carrying on our dark and sinister message," said Obama. "We trust his young fan base will bow to our will and carry out our wishes as we move to create the New World Order. After centuries of pulling the strings from the shadows, we feel that the One World Government is just within our grasp. We feel Justin is perfect to be the voice of our organization as we continue to pacify the population, manufacture elections and depopulate the planet. The best part is that the kid can really dance."
Bieber sat at Obama's side and was mostly quiet as the president spoke. It wasn't until the president was asked if he thought Bieber was qualified for the position that Bieber finally chimed in.
"Who are you to question me? I will do the bidding of my evil masters," said Bieber. "Pretty soon you, and everyone else, will follow us like sheep as we carry out our mission of world domination and genocide. I don't care who gets hurt. I don't care how many people die. I'm so passionate about our cause that I'll even work with president Obama even though I'm an avid racist, ask Usher."
The Illuminati have yet to name additional members to Bieber's cabinet but an announcement is expected to be made within the week.
