On day one, Biden signs a flurry of decrees

President Biden on Wednesday signed 17 decrees, memoranda and proclamations from the Oval Office, including the return of the Paris climate accords and the putting up of masks on federal property.

“I thought that with the state of the nation, there is no time to waste today. Get to work immediately. As we indicated earlier, we will be signing a number of Orders in Council over the next few days, the week. And I’m going to start today with the aggravated Covid crisis, Covid-19, with the economic crisis that followed, and the climate crisis, issues of racial equity. “And the first order I’m going to sign here is for Covid. And that requires, as I’ve said all the time, where I have authority, the obligation to wear masks, to maintain social distancing on federal property and interstate commerce, etc. This is the first I sign. “The second one I’m signing off here is support for underserved communities with regards to how we treat people in health care and other things that you can, we’ll give you copies of these decrees. And the third one that I’m going to sign, and the one that we will do while you are all here, is the commitment I made to join the Paris climate agreement today.

Video: Highlights of President Biden’s inauguration

“My fellow Americans …… it’s America Day.” Sing: “And the house of the brave.” “Please raise your right hand and repeat after me.” “I, Kamala Devi Harris, solemnly swear. “That I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States.” “So help me God.” “I, Joseph Robinette Biden Jr., I solemnly swear. “Which I will faithfully perform.” “Which I will faithfully perform.” “The Office of the President of the United States.” “The Office of the President of the United States.” “So help yourself God.” “So help me God.” “Congratulations, Mr. President.” “We have learned again that democracy is precious. Democracy is fragile, and at this hour my friends, democracy has prevailed. We will move forward with speed and urgency, because we have a lot to do in this perilous winter and great possibilities. Much to repair, much to restore, much to heal, much to build, and much to gain. And here we are, just days after an emotional crowd thought it could use violence to silence the will of the people. This does not happen. That will never happen. Not today. Not tomorrow. Never. Never. To all those who have not supported us, let me say this. Listen to me as we move forward. Take a measure of me and my heart. If you still don’t agree, so be it. This is democracy. This is America. Yet here me clearly. Disagreement should not lead to disunity. And I promise you. I will be the president of all Americans – of all Americans. I would like to ask you to join me in a moment of silent prayer. Remember all those we lost last year to the pandemic, those 400,000 fellow Americans …… amen. Together, we’ll write an American story of hope, not fear. Oneness, not division. Of light, not of darkness. A story of decency and dignity, love and healing, greatness and goodness. Let it be history that guides us. May God bless America and may God protect our troops. Thank you, America. “I wish the new administration good luck and every success.”
