Democracy prevails

Biden should bring America back on track

Spurring new hopes towards peace and unity Joe Biden began his presidency Wednesday with an inaugural address.

Democrat Joe Biden was sworn in as President of the United States assuming the helm of a country reeling from deep political divides, a battered economy and a raging coronavirus pandemic that has killed more than 400,000 Americans.

Biden takes office at a time of deep national unease, with the country facing what his advisers have described as four compounding crises: the pandemic, the economic downtown, climate change and racial inequality. 

Reportedly, he has promised immediate action, including a raft of executive orders on his first day in office. We are hopeful that the Biden administration will devise stringent action to address these four crises and restore America’s place in the world.

It is time to reunite America 

and restore the country's place 

in the world 

It is encouraging to note that on his first day in office,  Biden signed an executive action to immediately rejoin the Paris Agreement, an international treaty on the climate crisis from which US withdrew last year despite widespread criticism. We hope under the leadership of Joe Biden US will be one of the key players towards incorporating Paris Agreement throughout the entire world. We envisage that the Biden administration will stop integrating new fossil fuel projects in no time.

Last year has been a difficult year for the US. The pandemic has devastated the economy costing millions of Americans their jobs. Also, the country was hit by unprecedented nationwide anti-racism protests following the death of a black man in the custody of police.

Biden has an enormous task ahead of him to reunite the nation, restore its trust in the system and work with America’s allies to sustain a multilateral global order. Now it is time for Joe Biden to make America greater than ever before.s
