Washington: President Joe Biden Said his predecessor, Donald Like, Gave her a “very generous letter” before leaving Washington before her inauguration on Wednesday.
Biden told reporters Oval Office: “The President wrote a very generous letter. Because it was private, I wouldn’t talk about it until I talked to him. ”
The remarks came after Biden signed three executive actions, including the need for a face mask on federal property and a measure that would re-enter the US into the Paris Agreement on Climate.
The signing was Biden’s first press availability at the Oval Office, where some of the decorations from the previous administration have been replaced. He sat at the Resolute Desk, the same desk Trump, Barack Obama And many other presidents have used. The busts of Martin Luther King Jr. and Robert F. Kennedy, whose careers inspired Biden’s work in public service, blew the room’s chimney.
On a desk behind the desk was a portrait of Biden’s family and the expose of Labor leader Cesar Chavez.
Trump left Washington early Wednesday and arrived at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida, before Biden was sworn in to replace him at the White House.
After signing the action, Biden made about 1,000 political appointments at the White House and federal agencies, who participated in the East Room via video conference.
“We have to restore the soul of this country and I am counting all of you,” he said. “We have reached a point, in my view, where the American people – the blind – have been removed.”
He said that the government’s coronovirus vaccination program would be “the most consequential logical thing that has ever happened in the United States”, and that his administration could “meet this existential threat of climate change.”
But he also invited his appointees to lead with “one major American value: humility and trust”.
“If you ever work with me and I hear you disrespect with another coworker, talk to someone, I’ll fire you on the spot. Any ifs, ends or butts,” Biden said. “Everyone deserves to be treated with decency and dignity. It has been largely missing for the last four years.”
In response to a question from a journalist, Biden said that he is not worried about his cabinet candidates. The Senate has not yet filled any of its cabinet positions.
