The United States of America, USA, Senate Republican Leader, Mitch McConnell, has accused the newly inaugurated President, Joe Biden, of taking “several big steps in the wrong direction” on his first day in Office,
He maintained that the new administration should focus on “creating good-paying American jobs, not sacrificing our people’s livelihoods to liberal symbolism”.
Speaking from the Senate floor, the Senate Leader said that President Biden should “remember that he does not owe his election to the far left”.
Recall that among the first actions of the President Biden administration, were executive orders aimed at tackling the Covid-19 pandemic, rejoining the Paris Climate Accord, and protecting gay and transgender people from discrimination in workplaces, schools, and other areas.
Revealing the details of the measures, President Biden had said that there is “no time to waste, when it comes to tackling the crisis we face”.
He added: “That is why today, I am heading to the Oval Office, to get right to work, delivering bold action and immediate relief for American families.”
McConnell nonetheless said: “If and when our Democratic friends depart from common sense, when they retreat from common ground, when their proposals would harm the common good – then we will use the power the American people have given us to push for what is right
“The President can and should refocus his administration on creating good-paying American jobs, not sacrificing our people’s livelihoods to liberal symbolism.”
McConnell also proposed delaying the start of former President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial to February, to give him time to prepare his case.
