President Biden has recently opened up about life in the White House by making some pretty revealing admissions- and it's safe to say they've caused a stir online.

Now, Biden has thrown himself into his new role with gusto.


Just one month after his move to the White House, the newly-elected president has been busy dismantling a whole array of controversial 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.

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.

​He also reversed the decision to ban the trans community from serving in the military.


The controversial decision was initially passed by the Trump administration, but has since been reversed as soon as Biden came into power.

He has even brought back the plans for the face of Harriet Tubman to be put on the new $20 bill design.


This plan was originally proposed by the Obama administration but was then promptly stalled upon Trump's entry to the White House.

In a Monday press briefing, White House Press Secretary, Jen Psaki said:


"It's important that our notes, our money... Reflect the history and diversity of our country, and Harriet Tubman's image gracing the new $20 note would certainly reflect that."

She added that the administration is "exploring ways to speed up that effort, but any specifics would, of course, come from the Department of Treasury."

And, on top of all that...


He has also been clamping 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.

Despite all this, it appears there's one thing that still makes Biden feel uncomfortable about being in office...


How much he's waited on.

In a CNN Town Hall, Biden spoke about getting used to working and living at the White House.


He revealed to CNN's Anderson Cooper that he had been contacted by all but one living president following his presidency.

"They're private conversations," Biden said. "But, by the way, all of them have with one exception picked up the phone to call me as well."


Biden didn't reveal who hasn't called him but it seems pretty clear who it was.

Biden went on to say despite only being 4 weeks in office, it feels like 4 years already.


"It's not because of the burden is because there's so much happening that you focus on, you're constantly focusing on one problem or opportunity," he said.

He also revealed that there's one part of his presidency that he finds uncomfortable so far.


And it's caused a stir online...

CNN anchor Anderson Cooper asked Biden what it was like to be at the White House as the president as opposed to the vice president.


And while Biden first made a joke about how he would "get up in the morning and look at Jill and say, 'Where the hell are we?"

He also revealed something pretty interesting.

Biden revealed that he feels "extremely self-conscious" about how much is he waited on.


"I was raised in a way that you didn't look for anybody to wait on you," he said. "I find myself extremely self-conscious."

With so many White House staff, he even has someone who "hands me my suit coat."

But this stance is completely different to a former president we all know...

Back in 2017, during a phonemail with The New York Times, Trump bragged about life at the White House.


During the interview he spoke about "the most beautiful phones I've ever used in my life."

He also famously had a Diet Coke button in the Oval Office.
