Despite President Trump’s continued legal and political challenging of the 2020 election, Joe Biden is moving ahead with his transition into office.
The confusion surrounding the election has been intense in recent weeks, with Trump insisting that the contest was stolen from him via “widespread voter fraud” and perhaps even electronic voting machine disruptions.
For his part, Biden has taken things slowly, allowing Trump to play out his options, all the while continuing to make moves toward Pennsylvania Avenue.
His latest includes a number of promises that he’s making for day one:
1. Send a DACA bill to Congress
2. Reverse travel ban
3. Rejoin Paris climate agreement
4. Executive order on masks
5. Reverse Trump asylum limitations
6. Move to raise taxes on wealthy
7. Sign executive orders regulating oil and gas
This would be an ambitious plan for any politician of any age, let alone man who’s earned the nickname Sleepy Joe.
These were all “day one” promises made by Biden during different weeks of his campaign, and, in hindsight and compiled, appear to have been made as a slip of the tongue out on the trail or via Twitter. “On day one” is a very powerful way to start a sentence, or to keep your audience’s attention, and it could be that the longtime politician just fell into old habits.
Should Biden be inaugurated on January 20th, January 21st could be the busiest day Washington DC has ever seen.
