Biden brings back the swamp in quest to restore trust in government

Part of President Donald Trump’s promise to Americans in his first run for the White House involved his mission to clear out what he often refers to as the “swamp,” and though it took years in some cases, most would agree that he did a fine job of eliminating some of the swamp’s key figures.

However, according to The Hill, former Vice President Joe Biden — the presumptive president-elect — already has his sights set on resurrecting a number of those swamp-dwelling creatures as he and his transition team begin the process of filling key roles in his Cabinet. 

Biden’s transition team is fully focused on determining what level of rebuilding must take place within the halls of government to make sure Trump’s influence is completely stamped out.

“We are fully eyes open about the fact that there needs to be a rebuilt trust in government and institutions and what is communicated to the American people,” said Jen Psaki, a Biden transition adviser.

Her remark was aimed at Biden’s goal of restoring faith in America’s public health system, as they claimed on numerous occasions that Trump’s undermining of the Centers for Disease Control and other public health experts during the COVID-19 pandemic has confused many, leaving Americans unsure of whom they can trust.

Given recent news surrounding the various people Biden is tapping to fill his Cabinet and other key positions, it appears as if he’s focusing on selecting those who have long histories in U.S. government — the type of people that the Trump administration stayed mostly away from during his time in office.

In a recent letter to the editor in the Los Angeles Times, Doug Lenier wrote that he believes Biden’s goal of bringing back the swamp is a good thing for the American government, as he accused Trump of filling those roles with “a toxic waste-dump fire of multimillionaire con men, grifters and incompetents.”

Only time will tell what level of swampiness the incoming Biden Administration will restore to Washington. If he’s successful in doing so, America is going to look a lot different in the coming years, and definitely not in a good way.
