WASHINGTON (Diya TV) — President Biden is already dismantling many of former President Trump’s initiatives by signing a string of executive orders addressing the climate crisis, student debt, reversing the Muslim travel ban and implementing a mask mandate on federal land. The Biden Administration plans to roll out a total of 53 executive actions over his first 10 days.
Vice President Kamala Harris swore in three new U.S. Senators, Georgia’s Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff and her replacement in California, Alex Padilla. Democrats have now officially taken control of the U.S. Senate since Harris can break any 50-50 logjams between Democrats & Republicans.
