Last Wednesday, January 20, Joe Biden became the 46th president and Kamala Harris became the first Black and South Asian woman vice president of the United States.
[bf_image id="gh7hnnmz8s4rks9xrmstt4z"] It was truly one for the books, and the 2021 inauguration will be remembered for years to come. Now that Biden has been sworn in, you can expect a lot of change. His efforts are already dethroning the Trump legacy, and reviving a nation in turmoil.
Despite Biden being thrown into the presidency at arguably one of the most challenging times America has seen in recent history, he is already doing it with class and optimism.
1. More stimulus checks
Hooray! Another stimulus check is on the way! Well, hopefully. Biden and his team are working diligently to release $1.9 trillion in coronavirus relief. According to a CNN article, “The relief package includes a $1,400 bump for stimulus checks, more aid for the unemployed, additional support for small businesses, and increased funding for vaccinations among other items.”
2. A TON of Coronavirus relief
There are seriously so many executive orders to combat COVID-19, it’s hard to keep up. But, nevertheless, we’re totally here for it. To name a few, there will be easier access to healthcare in response to COVID-19 and schools will reopen safely.
3. Fighting the climate crisis
The climate crisis is an ever-changing issue around the world. Biden is planning to raise awareness for the crisis and calling it a “national security priority.” It is definitely at the top of his list.4.
4. Say goodbye to Trump-era immigration
Among one of the biggest fights Trump fought during his term was immigration. Unfortunately for him, and fortunately for us, his efforts are being diminished. Biden will be focusing on several policies, including one that will reunite families.
