Just eleven months into his new role and President Biden has thrown himself into it with some gusto.

In just months after his move to the White House, the president has been keeping himself very busy by 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 got straight 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.

But, despite all his hard work…

Biden – just like many past presidents – has made a few mistakes along the way.

He laid into Vladimir Putin, escalating the already tense relationship between the countries.

Biden was asked if he believed the Russian president was a killer, to which he responded “I do.”

Following the comment, Russia recalled its ambassador from the U.S…

And demanded an apology. Big yikes.

Oh, and we can’t forget about Biden’s many little slip-ups!

On several occasions, the president has been filmed falling up the stairs as he boarded Air Force One which resulted in him being a laughing stock online.
Which isn’t something the President of the United States wants to be.

The president has also faced a lot of criticism along the way, most recently during the Cop26 Climate Change Conference.

First of all, he was called out for “falling asleep” during the Cop26 Climate Change Conference speech in Glasgow, Scotland.

Then he was criticized for heading to the conference with a convoy.

After touching down in Air Force One, Biden traveled to and from the conference with a motorcade of around twenty-five vehicles.

But, despite his slip ups and the critics, Biden is undeterred…

And a recent press move was far more positive.

But just two days later and Biden is in controversy city again.

This time for the White House Christmas tree of all things.

Biden has been slammed for the Christmas tree.

Well, not exactly for the tree itself but for the price it cost.

advertisement

But just how much was it?

Well, according to the Daily Mail, the tree and its lighting ceremony cost a whopping $139,000!

And apparently there was an additional $171,000 for the event itself.

While some are delighted that the White House are splashing out for the ceremony (as last years ceremony was virtual), others are a little peed off, considering inflation in the US has recently soared.

What do you think?

A holly jolly start to the holidays or an insult to hard working American people?
