Joe Biden’s priorities after assuming office

The President Elect has promised to address several issues both domestic and international

Jerusalem24 – As President Elect Joe Biden stepped off the stage after a record breaking victory over the incumbent president Donald Trump, Americans and the rest of the world are looking towards the Biden-Harris duo as to their next steps.

In his speech after the announcement of his win in the 2020 Presidential elections, Biden announced that starting Monday he will begin working to form a committee to confront the Coronavirus pandemic in America.  In his first address after defeating Trump, he said “On Monday I will name a group of leading scientists and experts as transition advisors to help take the Biden-Harris plan and convert it into an actual blueprint that will start on January 20, 2021 (on Inauguration Day),” he said in his first address since defeating Trump.

Biden will also have a lot of work cut out for him in reviving the American economy. According to the American Bureau of Labor, unemployment has dropped to 6.9%, which is still higher than it was in the beginning of the year.

The problems of Police brutality as well as racism continue to divide America. With the killing of George Floyd earlier this year large protests had taken place in tens of cities across the country. Which was also an issue that Biden stated he will face in his speech.

Biden also had said that he wants to rejoin international organizations, including the World Health Organization, NATO as well as the Paris Climate Accord.

Vice-President Elect, Kamala Harris, has also announced that the new American administration will move away from the Trump-era’s policies in the Middle East. Harris said that, “We are committed to a two-state solution, and we will oppose any unilateral steps that undermine that goal. We will also oppose annexation and settlement expansion.” She also promised to reverse Trump’s decision to defund organizations delivering relief and aid to Palestinians, and work to reopen the PLO mission in Washington D.C..
