Just days into his presidency, Biden has been busy dismantling a whole array of Trump-era regulations.

For example…

Mere hours after his inauguration ceremony, Biden fulfilled one of his top campaign promises by pledging to put the U.S. back in the Paris Agreement on climate change – an international pact aimed at curbing emissions that cause global warming.
Trump famously withdrew from the agreement in 2017, citing costs to American taxpayers.

He also clamped down on the country’s COVID-19 response.

Biden signed an executive order which created the position of COVID-19 response coordinator, who will advise the president and oversee the distribution of vaccines, tests, and other supplies.
An executive order requiring mask-wearing on federal property was also signed.

And as for the country’s ongoing racial division?

Well, Biden has already got to work on putting the pieces back together.

He first signed an executive order to promote racial equity.

Biden ordered his government to conduct equity assessments of its agencies and reallocate resources to “advance equity for all, including people of color and others who have been historically underserved, marginalized and adversely affected by persistent poverty and inequality.”

He then reversed Trump’s infamous ban on U.S. entry from majority-Muslim countries.

Biden’s proclamation reversed Trump’s policy that barred entry to the U.S. for refugees and residents from 7 predominantly Muslim countries and orders plans within forty-five days for resuming visa processing.

And Biden’s latest move?

Well, he is proving that inclusivity is the cornerstone of his presidency, as the Biden administration has vowed to have an American Sign Language interpreter at every White House briefing.
And people are thrilled with the move…

This is a huge move in creating accessibility for all…

“As a part of this administration’s accessibility and inclusion efforts, starting today we will have an ASL, an American Sign Language interpreter for our daily press briefings,” press secretary Jen Psaki said on Monday.
“The President is committed to building an America that is more inclusive, more just and more accessible for every American, including Americans with disabilities and their families.”

The interpreter even appeared at the bottom of the screen while Psaki gave her remarks.

Since the briefing, the administration has been praised for its move to offer accessibility for all.

And has definitely set a different tone from the previous administration…

Which was sued last August by the National Association of the Deaf for not providing ASL interpreters at Covid-19 briefings.
This looks like the start of something great!
