What Has Joe Biden Done So Far

In terms of politics, few things shape the nation more than a Presidential election, it helps determine which party has favor with the American electorate and the general public. It will determine which direction the country takes its next four years of progress and in what areas. Since Biden has been inaugurated so far this year, these are the things that he has accomplished.

1. Covid Response:

Perhaps the most current issue, the pandemic facing the nation and the world, Joe Biden has tightened up the restrictions and changed the federal outlook on this virus. Starting with a mandate for all federal employees to wear masks and adhere to social distancing policies on government property, and creating a position designed to tackle this challenge, he is trying to reduce the number of deaths as much as possible. In terms of larger health concerns, he has also begun re-integrating the United States with the WHO(World Health Organization), since Trump tried to leave it.

2. Global Warming

One of the areas in which Trump faced the most backlash was the shift away from the Paris Agreement and the move towards more deregulation and less restrictions placed upon corporations and their damage on the environment. Biden has begun addressing this issue starting with rejoining the Paris Agreement, and stopping the Keystone Pipeline, but there is still more to be done. We need harsher regulations on corporations and overall on entire sectors who negatively impact the environment.

3. Racism

To be honest, doing anything on any issue race related is better than most of what Trump did while he was in office, but Biden has taken several great steps to combat racism. Issuing a memorandum, “Condemning and Combating Racism, Xenophobia, and Intolerance Against Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders in the United States”, and making several public pledges to combat racism is great. However, we need to see action in the form of legislation and new laws being passed.
