If you’ve watched a single speech by Joe Biden, or happened upon his Twitter account, you’ll notice that “day one” promises are a staple for the President-Elect. Biden has made top priorities out of reversing many of Trump’s accomplishments. He is planning to be very busy on January 20.
Once his official inauguration ceremony has been completed, Biden seems hellbent on churning out a series of executive orders, as well as sending bills to Congress for approval.
So what does the former Vice-President feel is so important that it must be addressed the minute he is officially the President of the United States?
For one, he’d like United States citizenship to be easily and clearly attainable by undocumented workers and illegal immigrants. His team has finally admitted that doing so “on day one” could lead to a surge at the border. Instead, they’ve extended their timeline to roughly six months for fully open borders.
Biden is also disgusted by Trump’s travel ban on majority-Muslim countries, including Iran, Libya, North Korea, Somalia, Syria, Yemen, Eritrea, Kyrgystan, Myanmar and Nigeria, as well as select residents from Tanzania and Venezuela. Despite the U.S. being unable to properly vet travelers from these nations, Biden plans to immediately cancel all travel bans. Any and all interested parties will be able to enter the U.S. at any time, vetted or not.
After finally and officially exiting the Paris accord on November 4, 2020, Biden plans to use executive action for the U.S. to immediately rejoin on January 20. Biden has big plans for the U.S.’s climate efforts, appointing multiple climate “czars” in an attempt to drastically reduce the use of fossil fuels. Despite critics questioning the effectiveness of such agreements, and the unfair burden placed on the United States over other nations, climate change will immediately be addressed by Joe Biden.
Biden also wants to require the entire country to wear masks at all times – despite the fact that more than 99% of those who contract COVID-19 recover, and despite the fact that outdoor transmissions are extremely rare. If you want to be out in public under a Biden administration, expect to cover your nose and mouth indefinitely. So what if no one can hear or understand you.
In response to Trump’s efforts to detain migrant children indefinitely, but with their families, Biden declared that he would not have it (a day one priority, naturally), but the courts have already addressed the issue. Migrant children can still only be detained for up to 20 days, so Joe doesn’t have to worry about this paperwork on January 20.
As soon as Joe gets into that Oval Office seat, he’s ready to raise taxes on anyone making over $400,000 – while simultaneously removing any tax loopholes they may be taking advantage of. If there’s one way to encourage the wealthy to create more jobs, I definitely think it’s decreasing their income.
And don’t forget Joe’s plan to limit oil and gas just as soon as he can get to signing. Be prepared for “aggressive” methane pollution limits for oil and gas sectors, rigorous fuel economy standards, and protections on federal land and water. Because what this country needs is more regulation and less access to resources.
Despite Biden needing Congressional approval for many of his “day one” efforts, he continues to insist that January 20 will be a landmark day in American history, full of executive orders and life-changing legislation. While most new Presidents strive to make an impact within their first 100 days in office, Sleepy Joe needs only one day for the same effect – amazing!
