Your Daily Roundup for January 19th
Let us know what you think.
Good morning. As the COVID-19 pandemic takes a toll on life in America, our team at Future Majority is tracking the latest updates:
Today is President Donald J. Trump’s final full day in office.:
Wednesday, January 20th marks the beginning of the new administration and the end of the Trump era as Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are sworn in. President Trump will spend his last full day granting a slew of pardons, many thought to be political allies and friends. The Senate will begin hearings for several of President-elect Biden’s Cabinet nominees, after delays in the process by Republicans who procedurally tried to overturn the election results and the two Senate runoffs in Georgia that ended up changing the balance of power in the chamber. Tens of thousands of National Guard troops continue to occupy our nation’s capital under threats of far-right violence.
A change in leadership means a change in the approach to tackle COVID-19:
Wednesday will also mark the last day that the Trump Administration is at the helm of combatting the COVID-19 pandemic, a crisis in which 400,000 Americans will have died under his watch due to the virus by the time Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are sworn in. In a speech last week, Biden laid out his plans to respond to the public health and economic crisis, including a new $1.9 trillion relief package that would provide more direct payments to Americans and ramp up vaccination and testing capacity. Today, Biden and Harris will honor those who lost their lives at a ceremony at the Lincoln Memorial.
After the 1/6/21 attack on the Capitol, Trump is leaving with historically negative approval ratings:
A majority of Americans in most opinion polling believe President Trump had a role to play in inciting the violent attack on the Capitol on 1/6/21 and his approval rating as he exits the national stage has taken a nosedive. Gallup found his approval rating to be 34%, the lowest of his entire four-year term. Trump’s approval rating usually hovered somewhere between 35% and 45% throughout his presidency, but recent polling indicates that he might end up with the lowest approval rating of any individual to hold the office in the modern era.
