    President Joe Biden

    Now that he has been elected President and will be starting to work on his transition to the role it is time to start a thread about him.

    Will he be a good president?

    Will he be able to unite America and govern for all?

    Will he control the virus?

    And even before we get to those, questions: will he be able to govern rather than let his ''advisors'' do so on his behalf?
    Out of the questions above, the one that is most interesting is the the virus one as it is probably one challenge that cost Trump the election. Lets see what Biden does.

    America needs a lockdown, a proper lockdown to control the virus, lets see if Biden does it.

    He is naming his coronavirus taskforce Monday, that will be interesting.

    It would have been a million times easier to control when there were fifteen sick and not ten million. When a handful of deaths and not quarter million. Many Health workers have died. Trillions wasted on ineffective lockdowns sabotaged by idiot Trymp. A stitch in time saves nine but too late now.
    Zionism is racism as defined by the UN, Israel by every dirty means available steals land and water, kill Palestinian freedom fighters and civilians, and operates an apartheid system to drive more Palestinians off their land

    I don't mean to be pedantic, but he hasn't actually been elected yet! That won't actually happen until the Electoral College meets in December - although it should be a formality, of course. And Trump is still President until January 20, so Biden can't really do anything yet. And what he does will depend a lot on who controls the Senate.

    I have no idea what this is supposed to mean. Presidents always rely on advisors, but advisors don't govern.

    He can't do worse than Trump!

    The USA broke their record for most Covid cases in a day for the 4th day in a row. They desperately need some proper leadership on the matter, hopefully things do not get much worse before January 20 when Biden can start working on controlling the virus.

    Will President Biden be a leader of war or a leader of peace?

    A strange statement. Biden has been a politician for almost 50 years. He knows how to work the system to get things done.

    It is going to be difficult for Biden if the senate stays in Republican hands as Mitch McConnel is quite likely to decide to vote against anything Biden wants to do without negotiation
