President-elect Joe Biden has pledged to change many things from the beginning. He declared he will take steps to reform the government. He also will undo some of Trump’s decisions. Biden repeatedly promised on his first day in office to rejoin the Paris climate accord. He has also said he would rejoin the World Health Organization, which Trump moved to withdraw from this year. Biden has also said he will repeal Trump’s ban on travel from some Muslim-majority countries and reinstate the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which allows “dreamers”, undocumented immigrants who were brought to the United States as children , to remain in the country.
The Biden-Harris transition Twitter account tweeted that the incoming administration will take on the “most urgent” challenges facing the nation, listing, “protecting and preserving our nation’s health, renewing our opportunity to succeed, advancing racial equity, and fighting the climate crisis.” Biden’s approach to Covid-19 pandemy will also be different. Public health experts expect a major reset, including a renewed emphasis on science, better communication and efforts to simultaneously boost the economy and public health. Biden has pledged to put scientists not politicians behind the microphone, make testing widely available and free, expand national surveillance programs.
