Newly elected US President Joe Biden plans to radically change American policy after the Republican vector of Donald Trump.

In particular, Biden is going to lift the travel ban for citizens of certain countries. The president also plans to join the United States to the Paris Climate Agreement. In addition, it is planned to restore relations with democratic NATO allies.

Biden's domestic policy

Fighting Coronavirus

Despite the coronavirus pandemic in the world, the main vector for Biden will of course be the fight against the coronavirus in the country. In particular, it is planned to introduce a mandatory mask regime. In addition, the US government plans to vaccinate 100 million people with at least one vaccine. Biden also promised to improve relations with WHO.

Economic policy

In addition, the newly elected president is going to allocate $1.9 trillion for economic recovery after the pandemic. Biden also said that he would cancel the tax cuts for companies introduced by Trump. The taxes that American businesses spend on foreign profits will also rise.

Immigration policy

Biden plans to lift the entry restrictions for citizens of Iran, Libya, Somalia, Syria, Yemen, Venezuela, and North Korea. In addition, it is planned to introduce a bill that will determine the path to citizenship of more than 11 million undocumented migrants. A working group will also be established to reunite about 545 migrant children with their parents.

At the same time, Biden plans to address the problems of racial inequality in the United States and support the LGBT community.

Biden's policy regarding Ukraine

At the same time, Biden's policy regarding Ukraine remains an important issue. However, optimism is added by the fact that the newly elected US president is very supportive of Ukraine and is more familiar with its problems than Trump was.

The United States military support

During his campaign, Biden explicitly promised that Ukraine would receive economic and military assistance from the United States.

The maximum support that Ukraine wants from the United States is the F-16 multirole fighters that could replace the MiG-29 and Su-27.

Also, the Ukrainian authorities were thinking about the possibility of purchasing American air defense systems Patriot.

However, such weapons are rather expensive, so all hopes for the Biden administration decision.

Relations with NATO

Trump was an outspoken skeptic of the North Atlantic alliance and more than once accused partners of unwillingness to spend on defense. However, Biden is likely to be more optimistic about NATO.

It is expected that in such a situation, an important item for Ukraine on the open door policy will remain.

Relations with Russia

According to personnel appointments, it is clear that Biden is choosing specialists who have been involved in relations with Russia for a long time. Moreover, they dealt with this issue even when Putin just came to power, noted the expert researcher of North America and the British Isles of the Foreign Policy Council "Ukrainian Prism" Oleksandr Kraiev.

Anthony Blinken will most likely become the new Secretary of State, who recently wrote that it is time to arm Ukraine.
