Washington, January 20, 2021: After much political turmoil, a new government has finally formed in the United States of America (USA). 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 in the chair of power. As soon as he got the president’s chair, Biden took many such important decisions and overturned the orders of former President Donald Trump.

On the very first day, US President 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 made this promise to the people of the country during the election. Not only this, Biden signed a decision to control an epidemic intended to intensify the war against the coronavirus. According to this order, they have made the mask and more social distancing mandatory.

In addition, Biden overturned Donald Trump’s decision to end the ‘Muslim Travel Ban’ in the US. 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 Biden after the decision.

Not only this, but US President Joe Biden has also signed an order banning the expansion of the Keystone XL pipeline. Keystone is an oil pipeline that carries crude oil from the Canadian province of Alberta to the US states of Illinois, Oklahoma and Texas. Biden spoke out against the Keystone XL pipeline and said that we don’t need tar sands. A key promise of Biden’s presidential campaign was the commitment to cancel the Keystone XL project.

It was believed that Biden could pull off 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.

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.
