Joe Biden may have won the presidency, but he has a long list of challenges that he faced directly in his first 100 days as a leader of the free world.
However, its overriding priority is believed to be fighting the pandemic.
As the US waited for the results yesterday, the nation set a new world record for a day’s increase in cases – more than 122,000 – and Mr Biden was very critical of Mr Trump’s handling of the situation.
He said that from day one he will be calling executives around the world trying to revive relationships that have turned sour under the Trump administration.

Another immediate priority will be trying to save Obamacare, which has been dismantled by Mr Trump.
It’s worth noting that much of what Mr Biden wants to do will be a struggle for him when the Republicans take over the Senate.
He could use the executive branch’s orders as much as possible to overturn Mr Trump’s orders, including those that have relaxed environmental regulations.
However, if the Democrats win the Senate, you can expect these changes to be implemented very quickly.
Let’s take a look at what he wants to do.
How will he tackle the pandemic?
He will be making lightning-fast appointments to the cabinet secretaries who will be at the center of his response – including his health secretary, finance minister, and director of the National Economic Council.
He has promised to take his advice from Dr. Reach out to Anthony Fauci, America’s foremost infectious disease expert, and make him a defining figure.
He also plans to set up a “pandemic committee” to manage resources to fight COVID-19 and improve testing.
OLD FLAMES REKINDLEN
Mr Biden has also pledged to reach out to the US allies Mr Trump pushed away from his first day in office and rejoin international groups like the World Health Organization.
“Day 1, if I win, I’ll phone our NATO allies and say we’re back,” Biden said in July. “We’re back and you can count on us again.”
‘MUSLIM BAN’ REVERSE
Another issue that Mr Biden believes Mr Trump has alienated voters is immigration and he will be making some big changes to the policy.
The controversial “Muslim ban” that Mr Trump introduced days after he was sworn in and prevented travel from several Muslim-majority countries would be lifted.
He will immediately end family segregation policies for illegal immigrants on the Mexican border.

He will lift Mr. Trump’s immigration restrictions, increase the number of applications processed each day, and send “humanitarian resources” to the border.
Eleven million “dreamers” who were brought to America by their undocumented parents as children will also find a clearer path to citizenship and be protected from deportation.
Undocumented migrants serving in the military will also be protected from deportation, and families separated in the past four years will be reunited.
He will also work with Congress to pass a hate crime law.
Racism, Guns and Taxes
Mr Biden has consistently attacked Mr Trump on racial issues and this year America broke out over the murder of George Floyd.
In his first 100 days, Mr. Biden wants to set up a new police oversight agency to address what he calls “institutional racism”.
Another problem that has plagued America over the years is mass shootings, and Mr Biden wants to draft a bill to fill the loopholes in the gun background check.

On taxes, Mr Biden has also announced that he will take immediate action to reverse the tax cuts secured by Mr Trump in 2017 for individuals and companies.
Mr Biden has vowed to repeal all of Mr Trump’s climate-impacting executive orders.
On his first day, he will sign an executive order to the Paris Climate Agreement, which the US originally signed up to when he was Vice President.
“The first thing I would do as President is to call a meeting of all the nations that have signed the agreement in Washington, DC, to up the ante,” he said during his campaign. “Because we’ve only learned so much about science in recent years, about what has to go faster.”
