While the next president won’t be sworn into office until late January, Joe Biden is already laying the groundwork for his first 100 days in office.
And at the top of his to-do list is one thing that will leave President Trump outraged.
Joe Biden’s plot to undo Trump’s greatest achievement was just exposed.
Joe Biden hasn’t even formally been elected President yet, and he’s already drawing up a list of things he wants to do if he ends up taking office in January.
And at the top of his list is a series of actions to undo as much of President Donald Trump’s agenda that he possibly can.
With a wide range of issues to tackle, from the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, to the Democrats’ plans to take over federal election law and institute socialized healthcare, Biden has a lot on his plate.
But he’s saving time for one issue, in particular, that could end up being the biggest blow to President Trump’s legacy.
The Seattle Times reports, “On Jan. 20 or soon thereafter, construction will come to an abrupt halt on the ‘big beautiful wall’ that President Donald Trump promised to build along the U.S.-Mexico border.
“One of the easiest actions for President Biden to take right away will be to end the emergency declaration, which he can do immediately through a presidential proclamation,” said one analyst from the left-wing Migration Policy Institute.
Biden plans on doing exactly that, with a promise to put an end to President Trump’s border wall almost immediately after taking office.
“Although Biden won’t push to dismantle Trump’s physical legacy, he will undo sharp curbs on refugee admissions and a host of other immigration policies put in place through executive order,” adds The Seattle Times.
While portions of the wall were in fact completed during Trump’s tenure in office, it remains nowhere near complete.
And should Biden take office in January, there’s a very real chance it never will be.
That’s because Biden plans on immediately canceling the military contracts that President Trump used to begin construction of the wall after Democrats in Congress worked to kill any legislation to appropriate funds to build it.
Without those contracts and the funding from the military, construction on the wall will come to a grinding halt, after around 400 miles of the wall had actually been built.
Of course, there’s no guarantee that Biden will actually take office in January, with legal battles over the outcome of the election still ongoing, and President Trump vowing to do whatever it takes to ensure the integrity of the election is upheld.
But it is clear that should Biden ultimately prevail, one of President Trump’s key accomplishments and campaign promises is set to be undone almost from day one of a Biden Presidency.
“At last count, just over 34% of the 1,954-mile border was walled off. The project has required 556,000 tons of steel and 797,000 cubic yards of concrete at last count,” concludes The Seattle Times.
