Let’s Give Biden a Break

After only being in office for a little over a month, Biden is receiving backlash for all the promises he is not upholding. In his campaign, he promised to do a lot of things but people are wondering where these actions are. Well, I believe it is time to give the new president a break considering his goals will take time and patience. After all, is it even possible to fix climate change and all the terrible things our country is facing overnight?

Despite all the backlash, let us take a look at all the things he has done as president.

Within his first day, Biden not only rejoined the Paris Climate Agreement, but put a freeze on the approval of rules passed in Trump’s final days as president. This freeze means that the department and agency heads will review Trump’s last-minute actions. Alongside the rejoining of the Paris Climate Agreement, Biden revoked the permit for the Keystone XL pipeline.

On his first day, Biden also made an executive order to incorporate undocumented immigrants into census and to undo regulatory restriction on federal agencies. His executive order to revise immigration enforcement policies and pulling the funds for the border wall was also a way to address the crisis at the southern border. For the LGBTQ+ community, Biden made an executive order that banned discrimination based on gender identity or sexual orientation. These orders and actions were just a few of the things that Biden did on his first day.
