The Democrat is set to have a busy agenda as he’s slated to enact a series of executive orders and pull apart the Republican’s legacy after he’s sworn in to office following his inauguration on January 20.
In a memo, the chief of staff Ron Klain said: “During the campaign, President-elect Biden pledged to take immediate action to start addressing these crises and build back better.
His plans include introducing mask mandates, axing Trump’s travel ban on mainly Muslim nations, and have the US rejoin the Paris Climate Accord.
He also expected to sign off orders to halt of evictions during the pandemic and introduce pause on student loan payments; to furthermore sign off orders to halt of evictions during the pandemic and introduce pause on student loan payments.
His top priorities list also includes a sweeping review of US immigration policy and getting a $1.9trillion coronavirus relief bill.
The Democrat will seek to terminate Trump’s travel ban which was first implemented in January 2017 and impacted people from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen as he will also make the US rejoin the Paris Climate Accord, which was signed in 2016 as a global pledge to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
Trump pulled out of the agreement in November 2019 as his administration branded the plans “unfair” and said the accord passed on the costs to regular Americans.
“‘As president, he will keep those promises and sign dozens of executive orders, presidential memoranda, and directives to Cabinet agencies in fulfillment of the promises he made.” Klain continued.
The FBI has warned they may be further attacks and “armed protests” across all 50 states ahead of the the January 20 inauguration.
Biden will be taking over a divided nation, which has only been split further as Trump claimed without evidence that he is the real winner of the 2020 election.
Shocking scenes two weeks ago saw a mob of Trump fans storm the Capitol as the violent riot ended with five people dead, including a cop.National Guard troops have been deployed to Washington DC in unprecedented numbers with the scenes being likened to a war zone.The Department of Justice has opened 275 cases as arrests mount across the US.Ex.
FBI boss James Comey has warned Joe Biden’s inauguration is under threat from “armed, disturbed” people following the riot at the Capitol.In a video released shortly after he was impeached, Trump called for calm and condemned violence.”I unequivocally condemn the violence that we saw last week,” Trump said.”Violence and vandalism have absolutely no place in our country and no place in our movement.”
Trump is not expected to attend the inauguration and will instead leave Washington on the morning of January 20.And looking abroad – Biden is planning to the UK as his first trip outside of North America as President, where he would be expected to meet with Prime Minister Boris Johnson.
Britain and the US have enjoyed close links for decades which have been dubbed the “special relationship”. It was feared Brexit – the UK’s withdrawal from the European Union (EU) – may trigger diplomatic tensions with the new Biden administration.
Trump was considered pro-Brexit, and his shock victory in 2016 was often compared with the EU referendum result that caught the UK establishment by surprise.
“Joe’s view will be that they’ll have the destiny of the world on their shoulders so he’ll want to overcome any political differences,” a pal of Joe’s told The Telegraph.
Britain and the US are attempting to work on a new trade deal following Brexit, which isn’t expected to be in place before 2022.
Trump and Johnson have both used the phrase “Build Back Better” as they attempt to lay out how their nations can come through the development.
“Joe’s view will be that they’ll have the destiny of the world on their shoulders so he’ll want to overcome any political differences.
“I think there’ll be more empathy than there was between Boris and Donald Trump. Boris seemed to get along with Trump, but I don’t know if he really did.”
Despite the Trump administration positioning itself as an ally of Brexit Britain, the outgoing President enjoyed a frosty reception of visits to the UK. UK Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab is also hoped to visit Biden in Washington DC shortly after his inauguration.
