Biden signed three executive orders within hours of being sworn into office on Wednesday, including a wear a mask mandate and social distancing on federal property, executive order on racial equity and “support for underserved communities,” and rejoining Paris Climate Accord.
On his first day in office, Biden signed more than a dozen executive actions to kick off a 10-day blitz that includes a flurry of legislative proposals aimed at reversing former President Donald Trump’s legacy.
Newsmax’s Trish Regan called Biden’s agenda “America Last,” saying that the president signed 15 executive orders and none that prioritize the American citizens.
On his first day out of office, Pompeo said he was proud of what the Trump administration achieved during the past four years and vowed to continue fighting for America.
“It has been an honor to serve as the U.S. Secretary of State. Today, as I step down from this role as our nation’s top diplomat, I am proud of what we achieved—and I promise to never stop fighting for America,” Pompeo tweeted with hashtag AmericaFirst.
The Trump administration implemented several increasingly harsh sanctions against the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), including its members and its state-run companies that threatened America and the world’s interests.
On Wednesday, the CCP announced sanctions on Pompeo and over 20 other figures from the Trump administration as Biden took office. China’s foreign ministry called Pompeo a “doomsday clown and his designation of China as a ‘perpetrator of genocide and crimes against humanity’ a piece of waste paper.'”
Pompeo has called the CCP “the central threat of our time” and repeatedly warned that the CCP authoritarianism would be our future if we let our guard down again.
In a separate tweeted message, Pompeo said he “will never stop fighting for America First, even after (his) time as Secretary of State. “There is always more work to be done, and I look forward to continuing to share and engage with you on what’s next,” Pompeo wrote.
Pompeo served as CIA director under Trump before becoming America’s top diplomat. He is considered to be one of more than a dozen potential 2024 GOP presidential hopefuls.
