President-elect Joe Biden plans to take immediate action to turn the page on the Trump era after his inauguration speech this week, chief of staff Ron Klain said Sunday after laying out Biden’s plan for his first days in office.
Biden is planning a 10-day blitz of executive action on what his administration is calling the “four crises” facing the country — Covid-19, the economic downturn, racial injustice and climate change.
“He’s going to come back to the White House after giving that speech at the Capitol and take some immediate actions to start to move this country forward,” Klain told CNN’s “State of the Union” on Sunday. (Let’s hope his teleprompter doesn’t break down this time)
Klain elaborated on Biden’s plans for his first days in a memorandum issued to incoming White House staff, sent on Saturday, titled “Overview of First Ten Days,” which was provided to NBC News.
Biden’s plans include:
- Wednesday: Rejoining the Paris climate change agreement and reversing President Donald Trump’s travel ban, which applies to several Muslim-majority countries. Biden will also require masks on federal property and interstate travel and take action to extend eviction and foreclosure restrictions.
- Thursday: Biden will sign executive actions related to reopening schools and businesses, and Friday he will “direct his Cabinet agencies to take immediate action to deliver economic relief to working families bearing the brunt of this crisis,” (according to the memo.)
- The following week: Biden will take “significant early actions to advance equity and support communities of colour and other underserved communities.” He will also take action to address climate change, (watch out for fuel cost rises) expand access to health care (will Obamacare make a return, maybe called Bidencare) and “restore dignity to our immigration system and our border policies.” (So shall we expect a resurgence of the Cartels and illegal immigration)
- There was no mention of whether China would be allowed to go back to ripping off America, as in the pre-Trump era
Biden is set to officially take office on Wednesday at noon ET. Klain told CNN that Biden’s inaugural address would be “a message of moving this country forward, a message of unity, a message of getting things done.” (You know the unity fostered by impeaching the President and threatening to blacklist his supporters)
In the memo sent to staff Saturday, Klain emphasized the stark challenges the nation faces. ( The Biggest one being having Beijing Biden for a President)
“We face four overlapping and compounding crises: the COVID-19 crisis, the resulting economic crisis, the climate crisis, and a racial equity crisis,” Klain wrote in the memo.
“In his first ten days in office, President-elect Biden will take decisive action to address these four crises, prevent other urgent and irreversible harms, and restore America’s place in the world,” (What restore it to the soft-touch laughing stock it was under Obama)
The executive actions come in multiple forms, including executive orders, presidential memoranda, and directives to Cabinet agencies. (God help America)
