Major decision-making orders are waiting for US President-elect Joe Biden as he is all set to be sworn in as the next U.S president on Wednesday. According to reports from AFP, the important executive orders Biden will focus on will be the pandemic, the ailing US economy, climate change, and racial injustice in America.
“All of these crises demand urgent action,” his incoming chief of staff Ron Klain said in a memo to the new White House senior staff, adding that Biden will sign “roughly a dozen” orders after he is sworn in on Wednesday.
“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,” Klain added.
Biden this week unveiled plans to seek $1.9 trillion to revive the economy through new stimulus payments and other aid and plans a blitz to accelerate America’s stumbling Covid vaccine rollout effort.
“President-elect Biden will take action — not just to reverse the gravest damages of the Trump administration — but also to start moving our country forward,” Klain said.
President Trump is skipping Biden’s inauguration as the first president in more than 150 years to snub the solemn ceremony symbolizing the peaceful transfer of power.
