This is what Biden plans to do in the first ten days of his presidency

Several huge crises will determine the time of Joe Biden’s tenure as President of the United States. Immediately after taking the oath he wants to show determination. Meanwhile, the authorities are taking care of the US capital for fear of violence.
D.future U.S. President Joe Biden wants to make dozens of resolutions in the first ten days of office that should lead the U.S. to a new course after the expiration of Donald Trump’s term.
On Saturday, Biden’s team circulated an internal letter from future White House chief of staff Ronald Klein, which said that after Wednesday’s swearing in, Biden, in particular, would lift Trump’s travel ban on citizens from several predominantly Muslim countries and return the US to Paris to head the climate deal.
“These measures are just the beginning of our work,” Klein explained. But by February 1, the foundation had been laid for America to move in the right direction given the crown pandemic, the economic crisis, climate change and inequalities between ethnic groups.
On Wednesday, Biden will be sworn in as the 46th president of the United States. The ceremony takes place on the west side of the US Capitol. The change of power is overshadowed by fears of further violence following the storming of the parliament building by violent Trump supporters on January 6 and the ongoing crown pandemic.
Usually at the inauguration there are crowds of spectators flocking to the capital from all over the country. This year, the center of the capital looks like a fortress: metal fences, concrete barricades and police checkpoints have been installed to protect the Capitol, the White House and other federal buildings. Thousands of members of the National Guard are also on duty.
Biden has made tackling the crown pandemic a priority. On Saturday, his chief of staff reaffirmed Biden’s plan after the oath to make the mask mandatory for 100 days in places where the federal government has the right to say – for example, in government buildings. On January 21, Klein promised a series of directives that should help combat the crown pandemic. On January 22, Biden also instructed government authorities to take immediate action to provide economic support to those particularly affected by the crisis. Biden will also introduce additional rules to combat major crises in the country.
Klein’s review of Biden’s first ten days in office made it clear that with the future president of the United States, more predictability should go to the White House. Republican Trump has often surprisingly announced important decisions on Twitter.
Concerns about possible further violence around the oath emerged on Saturday to confirm the arrest of an armed suspect who headed to a police station near the U.S. Capitol on Friday night. A police report found that a 31-year-old boy from Virginia had a loaded pistol and 500 rounds of ammunition. Police also confiscated ammunition for the gun. The arrest was made, among other things, because neither firearms nor ammunition were registered. Also, the man does not have a gun license, a police spokeswoman said.
The CNN news channel reported that the man made a fake permission to access this oath this Wednesday. Police spoke only of a certificate that had not been issued by a government agency.
