President Joe Biden said his predecessor left him a “very generous letter” before departing office.

Speaking from behind the Resolute Desk, Biden said he would not reveal the contents of the letter out of respect for former President Donald Trump.

“The President wrote a very generous letter,” Biden said. “Because it was private I will not talk about it until I talk to him.”

Meanwhile, Biden signed a total of 17 executive orders and actions in the Oval Office on Wednesday evening. The orders will overturn several Trump-era orders, and were diverse in their impact, ranging from a mask mandate on all federal property to revisions of directives introduced by former President Donald Trump, including halting the construction of a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.

Biden’s first orders also recommitted the U.S. to the World Health Organization, ended the so-called Muslim travel ban and asked for an extension of a student loan payments pause.

The new president plans to sign several other orders throughout his first week in office; the White House is expected to announce subsequent orders in the coming days.

One of those executive orders was to rejoin the U.S. into the Paris climate agreement – “as of today”.

  1. Oh please. Take off the stupid mask already. You’re the President of the United States. It doesn’t look normal or dignified to sit in the oval office with a dumb mask covering your face. If some pervert reporter is nervous, let them stay home.

  2. In 30 minutes, Biden was able to reverse some of the worst actions of his predecessor over 4 years. All of these actions were broadcast over the past several months so no surprises. Over the longer term, I’m not a great believer in the expansive view of the “unitary executive” under which Presidents unilaterally issues executive order on matters which really should be done through legislation only to have those actions reversed by his successor. Obama was almost a bad as Trump in pushing the envelope on what could be done under EOs. As Congress became more polarized and increasingly unable to legislate, executive orders became the norm rather than exception.

  3. Looking at this picture literally brought copious tears to my eyes, because this piece of meat is not fit to be in the chair so eloquently occupied by President Donald Trump who was so well suited to that position

  4. I’m sure that בטל בשישים, election-stealing old-timer meant “gracious letter.” What an incompetent fool sitting in that chair. ה’ ישמור.

  5. Your headline inaccurately states that he called a “gracious letter”. In fact, he called it “generous” as correctly noted in your article body.

  6. Sounds like they hired someone whose job is to end the questions of reporters and shuffle them out of the room fast so Biden doesn’t continue to make a fool of himself in public. What a sham(e).

  7. he’s wearing that muffler so in case if he says something wrong……
    what’s so wrong with banning muslim terrorist that it had to be reversed the first minute? I actually think terrorists are a danger to our country, anyone disagree?!

  8. To those commenters mocking Biden for wearing a mask in the Oval Office pic:

    Biden is not a genius, mah sh’ein kein Trump. But he’s still smart enough to realize that it’s important for the president to set the correct example. Mah sh’ein kein Trump, who did his best to downplay the dangers of covid, not only by refusing to wear a mask, but by actively disparaging others who wore one in his presence. Chris Christie openly acknowledges that he almost lost his life because he wasn’t permitted to wear a mask at the Amy Barrett event at the White House.

    On second thought, I just realized that you’re probably smarter than me, and you figured out already that wearing masks is just another oppressive leftist tool to control the oilom goilem. In that case, go on endangering others by insisting on going unmasked, even when in close proximity to others who care about their lives.

  9. To HBS:

    When Chris Christie finally admits to making a mistake, which I don’t recall ever having heard him doing before, he should be believed.

  10. He “would not reveal the contents of the letter” because he simply cannot recall the contents , and please do not remove the mask as not to reveal your full face .
