2020 US presidential election: Joe Biden could do that first in...

Biden announced several acts of office directly for his first day at the White House. Here are a few things he could do first:


Biden made the virus one of the central issues during the election campaign. This could include a nationwide mask requirement, with lawyers disagreeing whether he can enact this. In addition, the test capacities are to be expanded in cooperation with companies. Biden promised access to corona testing for all US citizens and that treatments and vaccines will be available free of charge.


Biden announced that he wanted to immediately lift many of his predecessor Donald ’s tax breaks for companies and the wealthy. However, this would require the approval of Congress. Existing tax regulations are to be implemented more consistently. Unions are also to be strengthened. But Biden also plans to instruct authorities to use goods and services from the United States to stimulate the domestic economy.

Civil rights

At least within the first hundred days, Biden wants to pass a law to protect against discrimination based on sexual identity or gender, the Equality Act. He also wants to campaign for stricter gun laws.


Biden wants to send the Congress a draft on the reform of immigration law on the first day of his office. The aim is to offer the eleven million people in the United States without a residence permit a way to obtain US citizenship. In addition, Biden promised to suspend deportations for the first 100 days. The entry restrictions imposed by Trump are to be withdrawn.

Foreign policy

On the first day, Biden also wants to reverse the United States’ withdrawal from the World Health Organization (WHO) and rejoin the Paris Climate Agreement. The nuclear deal with Iran should also be reactivated. He also wanted to telephone the allies on the famous “Day One” in order to restore the credibility of the USA abroad.


The Democrat also wants to reintroduce a whole host of environmental regulations that Trump cut during his tenure. Alternative energies should be promoted. In addition, a new authority in the Ministry of Justice is to take action against environmental polluters.

Consumer protection

The Trump administration had relaxed various consumer protection regulations in the past four years, which Biden wants to tighten again. In this context, he could appoint a new head of the CFPB regulator, which deals with financial products. The financial industry is likely to be confronted with stricter requirements and harsher penalties for misconduct practically overnight.
