In an interview on NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt, President-elect Joe Biden gave a rundown on his first 100 days in office. Biden says he will tackle immigration, climate change, and minority communities in his first 100 days.
“Some of it is going to depend on the kind of cooperation I can or cannot get from the United States Congress but I am going to make a commitment on the first 100 days I will send a immigration bill to the United States Senate with a pathway to citizenship for over 11 million undocumented people in America,” Biden said in the interview with Holt on NBC Nightly News.
President-elect Biden said that he is interested in overturning executive orders that President Donald Trump signed that have significantly impacted the climate. Biden also wants to get immediate assistance to state and local governments for minority communities.
“There’s multiple things that are gonna have to be taking place at the same time but the most important thing, I think is, while I do, while we try to do all of this, focus on those folks who are always when crisis hits, they’re the first one hit and when recovery comes they’re the last ones in. That’s basically minority communities.”
Holt asked President-elect Biden whether he supported investigations against President Trump after the election and Biden said “I will not do what this president does and use the justice department as my vehicle to insist that something happened.”
“I’m focused on getting the American public back at place where they have some certainty, some surety, some knowledge that they can make it. The middle class and working-class people are being crushed – That’s my focus,” Biden said to Holt.
