Washington : After much political turmoil, a new government is finally formed in America. Democrat Joe Biden was sworn in as America’s 46th president on Wednesday. US Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts administered the oath of office to Joe Biden as the nation’s 46th president. Also Kamala Harris, the first American woman of Indian origin, was sworn in as the Vice President. Biden did what the whole world expected when he sat on the chair of power. As soon as he got the president’s chair, Joe Biden took many such important decisions and overturned the orders of former President Donald Trump.
On the very first day, US President Joe Biden signed several decisions, most notably the Paris Climate Agreement. The White House has reported that the US will return to the Paris Agreement on Climate Change. Biden announced to rejoin the Paris Climate Agreement. He had made this promise to the people of the country during the election.
In addition, Joe Biden overturned Donald Trump’s decision to abolish the ‘Muslim Travel Ban’ in America. Under this, Trump had banned travel of some Muslim countries and African countries to America. Not only this, Biden also overturned Trump’s decision to build a wall on the Mexico border and withheld funding for it. Mexico has praised Joe Biden after the decision.
It is believed that Biden may withdraw several projects launched by the former government. For example, the US encourages fracking and oil-gas production in Argentina through international development financing, the last time for the Waka Muerta projects. A petition was signed against it by several US senators, including elected Vice President Kamala Harris.
Similarly, Biden spoke against the Keystone XL pipeline, saying that we don’t need ‘tar sands’. A key promise of Biden’s presidential campaign was the commitment to cancel the Keystone XL project. He may stop a new project involving bringing Canadian tar sands to the US through Minnesota.
Biden said he would hold Brazil’s President Bolsonaro accountable for deforestation. This could perhaps be achieved by rallying with other countries and supporting $ 20 billion (about Rs 1500 billion) for the security of Amazon. However, local Brazilian groups insist that this should be done in a way that acknowledges and respects the sovereignty of Brazil on its part of the Amazon.
