Former Vice President Joe Biden is gearing up to take over the White House, and he’s got all kinds of big plans to set in motion on day one — or at least his handlers do.
Biden’s Press secretary Jen Psaki announced on Wednesday that Biden has made the decision to immediately use his executive power to cancel President Trump’s “midnight regulations” on the first day of his presidency.
“We’re announcing today that, like other incoming administrations have done before,” Psaki told reporters, “the Biden-Harris White House will issue a memo to take effect on the afternoon Eastern Time on January 20 that will halt or delay midnight regulations, actions taken by the Trump administration that will not have taken effect by Inauguration Day.”
Fox News explains that “midnight regulations” are rules “outgoing administrations rush through during the lame-duck period.”
Psaki declared that such an executive order is “is standard practice for an incoming administration” and allows incoming officials to examine the previous administration’s rules before making a decision in regard to either allowing or canceling them.
Democrats have been waiting for years to be able to reverse or vacate dozens of President Trump’s actions while in office, and this impending executive order is simply another way for the Biden camp to destroy Trump’s progress.
Biden has a long list of “day-one” actions he has declared as his priority, including issuing a national mask mandate, rejoining the Paris Climate Accord and the World Health Organization, and reverse President Trump’s tax cuts.
