As Donald Trump bade his final goodbye as the 45th President of the United States on 19th January 2021, things are starting to fall into place. Now, Joe Biden is said to take over the White House as the 46th President of the United States of America, with Kamala Harris as its Vice-President. This is excellent news for the Democratic party, where President Barack Obama had been in the seat for 8 whole years. Now, it’s time for Joe Biden to fulfill all the wishes and aspirations of millions of Americans.
What is coming for the oldest democracy in the world is a matter of time, as Joe Biden promises to make America great again. As the President and Vice President’s inaugural has already taken place on the 20th of January, 2021, let’s take a closer look at how the new presidential team has taken things over on the very first day.
A new day with the new President:
As Joe Biden takes his seat as the newly elected President of the United States, people hope to see things under control. With the enormous amount of distress brought about by Donald Trump’s leadership, the biggest question is: Will Joe Biden be able to bring things back to normal? Will the United States of America stand tall and grand again? Americans are expecting a lot more from the current President’s tenure, with expectations soaring high from international relations.
As world leaders congratulate Joe Biden and Kamala Harris on their first day of work, it’s time to reflect on the international relations that they are about to stand by. The biggest concerns come from countries like South Korea and India, which expect strength and bilateral relations for defensive measures against their neighbors. Moreover, as Donald Trump failed to keep up with his promises regarding promoting a strong international tie, what changes can we expect from the current Joe Biden presidency?
As the new dawn marks an entirely new era in America’s history, the time has come when the new elected heads must do their duty. Certain things need proper guidance and solutions. First of all, the coronavirus pandemic has wreaked havoc in America, claiming more than 4 lakh lives. It has also exerted deep pressure on the country’s healthcare system, with people left behind on the streets as no beds were offered to them.
Therefore, the biggest challenge that the Joe Biden presidency must solve is that of the coronavirus. With this, some executive orders have already been signed and put in place. These are as follows:
- Wearing masks in public places has been made mandatory for the next 100 days.
- No gathering of more than 20 people.
- Maintaining social distancing and hygiene is also essential.
- Lastly, coming out of houses only during an emergency.
- Schools opened only for emergency classes while maintaining all Covid protocols.
With this said, Joe Biden promised to vaccinate 100 million people within 100 days. This is a big step and significantly contributes towards positively ending the pandemic.
What are the other challenges that are yet to take care of?
Under the Presidency of Donald Trump, some areas of international peace were disrupted. Some of them are as follows:
- Donald Trump passed a law for building the Mexican wall on the American-Mexico border.
- America opted out of the Paris climate change partnership.
- America opted out of not contributing anymore to the World Health Organization’s fund.
- Donald Trump banned Muslim immigrants from seven Muslim Nations.
On the very first day itself, Joe Biden tackled all these issues beautifully. These are the changes done so far:
- Joe Biden immediately ordered to stop the construction of the Mexican wall.
- It again joined the Paris climate change partnership, which Trump had earlier backed out of.
- America is willing to contribute again to contribute a significant amount to the WHO’s treasury.
- Lastly, Joe Biden lifted bans from seven Muslim nations. Now, Immigrants from these seven countries can travel to America.
Due to all these orders signed on the first day, people expect a lot more from Joe Biden. Therefore, with these changes, the people’s expectations are rising high, and America’s future seems bright once again.
International pacts that Joe Biden must fulfill:
Both India and South Korea are in a strategic partnership with America with regards to defense regulations. In this regard, there are certain things that America should fulfill. America supplies arms and other instruments to India according to the defense partnership treaty. With this, Biden promises to maintain close ties with South Korea to denuclearize North Korea fully.
With this said, there are other concerns for the country as well. Both Joe Biden and Kamala Harris have Indian roots. This is significant meaning for India alone. The Prime Minister of India wishes to take its relations with the United States of America to a whole new level. This is to prove to the world that both India and America are great partners in dealing with any crisis that comes their way.
On the other hand, other nations are willing to cooperate with America’s handling of major world affairs. As countries worldwide watch Joe Biden and Kamala Harris’s inauguration, people are eager to see more assistance from the newly elected Democrats. Hence, the responsibility is for real!
Great Victory for America:
As the world witnessed Donald Trump walking out of the White House for the very last time, citizens of the country were happy to see Joe Biden and Kamala Harris take over. As things are seen with a bright light degree, both the Democrats are willing to shed their sweat and blood to improve things for America.
Hence, there is so much to expect and hope for in the upcoming four years.
