100 Days: Biden Copies Trump Agenda, Adds Radical Twist
The Scoop: Well, Biden officially held his first State of the Union-like Joint Address to Congress on Wednesday night, during which he stole several Trump actions and agenda items.
In an effort to pretend like he’s pro-America, Biden proudly said he wants to create “jobs, jobs, jobs,” lower pharmaceutical drug prices, and bring back manufacturing. Sound familiar?
It should, considering that was Trump’s four-year platform.
But like any good Democrat, Biden couldn’t just promote an agenda that helps the American people. He had to throw in a massive spending package that would increase government’s involvement in our personal lives too.
Instead of unveiling a plan that would help America’s economic recovery or create jobs, he touted a $2 trillion plan that gives individuals and families up to four years of free college, free daycare, and universal pre-K, among many other education-related issues.
This makes now three multi-trillion-dollar government spending bills Biden has introduced in his first 100 days—none of which address the crises our nation’s facing under his administration.

Executive Action Alert!
Biden issued three presidential actions, including two executive orders and one travel ban.
The “Executive Order on Worker Organizing and Empowerment” creates a task force to “identify executive branch policies, practices, and programs that could be used, consistent with applicable law, to promote my Administration’s policy of support for worker power, worker organizing, and collective bargaining.”
The order states statistical evidence shows members of unions see higher wages on average. Therefore, the administration is dedicated to encouraging workers to unionize.
Federal contractors will see minimum wage increase to $15 dollars per hour under the “Executive Order on Increasing the Minimum Wage for Federal Contractors”.
Lastly, Biden issued a ban on travelers coming to the US from India. How “xenophobic” of him, as Democrats would say if it was the Trump administration.

What’s In Biden’s $2 Trillion “American Families Plan”?
According to preliminary reports, the $1.8 trillion-dollar spending bill consists of $1 trillion in various investments and $800 billion in tax credits aimed at education and childcare, CNBC reported.
Most notably, the package would fund a portion of childcare for families, create a national paid family leave plan, implement free preschool, and provide two years of free community college for anyone who wants it.
Other notable changes the plan entails are to subsidize tuition for minority-majority colleges, expand EBT food stamp program, and permanently extend child tax credit.
How will Biden pay for this bill, you might ask?
As part of the package, taxes would be raised on capital gains to 39.6% on those who earn more than $1 million. Only Americans making under $400,000 would not see their taxes increase under the American Families Plan.
5 Points Biden Stole From Trump Agenda
- Biden called to end the Afghanistan war, our nation’s longest battle, which Trump had already negotiated to end. While Biden pushed back troop withdrawal from the region to September 11, Trump had the date set for May 1, six months prior to Biden’s new date.
- The president echoed Trump’s calls to be “tough on China” by saying we should “Buy American” and bring manufacturing home “from Beijing.”
- Biden urged for job creation, which was one of Trump’s crowning accomplishments under his genius economic policy.
- Biden also called to lower prescription drug prices…even though he’s the one who signed executive orders halting Trump’s actions to reduce drug prices.
- The president also repeated Trump’s initiative on finding the cure for cancer.
VIDEO: Pelosi Rips Trump’s State of the Union Speech
Watch as Nancy Pelosi rips up President Trump’s 2019 State of the Union address transcript where he calls for ending endless wars, honors our veterans, warns about the coronavirus, and celebrates America’s success under his America First agenda.
Pelosi ripped up the same agenda that Biden is now adopting, in part, to pander to conservatives.
