🔴Thursday January 21st 2021 🔵2021年1月21日星期四 1️⃣Biden sworn in as the 46th president of America 拜登宣誓成為美國第四十六任總統 In his inaugural address President Joe Biden declared that “democracy has prevailed”. Speaking immediately after being sworn in as the 46th president of America, Mr Biden acknowledged the suffering wrought by the coronavirus pandemic and by deep political divisions. He called for unity, beseeching Americans to “end this uncivil war that pits red against blue” and for the nation to “confront” white supremacy. Hours later Kamala Harris, who as vice-president presides over the Senate, swore in three new Democratic senators, giving her party a razor-thin majority in the upper chamber. 美國總統拜登在就職演說中宣佈“民主勝出”。在宣誓成為了美國第四十六任總統後,拜登隨即發表談話。他認知到新冠病毒大流行以及政治分歧所 (對美國社會) 造成的苦難。他高喊團結,希望美國人“結束這場野蠻的紅藍 (即共和黨以及民主黨之代表色) 對立戰爭”,並呼籲整個國家“對抗”白人至上主義。在幾個小時後,新上任的副總統 (兼參議院議長) 賀錦麗 (Kamala Harris) 在參議院主持三名宣誓就職的民主黨籍參議員之儀式,如此使得賀錦麗的民主黨在美國上議院 (即參議院) 中佔了些微的多數 (席次)。 2️⃣The old man moves fast: signing this and that 老拜登寶刀未老:簽簽簽 Mr Biden signed 15 executive orders and two additional agency directives, which are not legally binding. His administration will rejoin the Paris Climate Agreement and World Health Organisation; stop construction on the border wall in Mexico; and end the travel ban on citizens from several Muslim-majority countries—all stark reversals of Donald Trump’s policies. Meanwhile the Senate confirmed Avril Haines, Mr Biden’s pick for director of national intelligence. (上任第一天的) 拜登簽署了十五項行政命令以及另外兩項行政指令,儘管它們 (仍) 不具法律效力。拜登的政府將重新加入《巴黎氣候協定 (Paris Climate Agreement)》以及世界衛生組織 (WHO);停止在與墨西哥的邊界建築高牆;並終結對來自多個穆斯林國家與地區之公民的旅行禁令。這些作為與前任總統川普的政策形成了鮮明的逆轉/翻轉/對比。與此同時,美國參議院同意了總統拜登提名 Avril Haines 擔任國家情報局長之人事任命案。 3️⃣Trump’s exiting remarks… 川普的離別詞… In his final hours in office, Mr Trump overturned his own executive order banning former White House employees from lobbying the government, part of his initial election promise to “drain the swamp” (Mr Biden is expected to strengthen White House ethics standards). Before departing for Florida, Mr Trump wished the incoming administration luck and pledged to return “in some form”. 在任內的最後幾個小時裡,川普推翻了自己先前下的一行政命令:禁止前白宮僱員遊說政府,而這是他初次競選時所承諾的一部分,以“清除淤泥”(拜登有望加強白宮的道德準則/標準)。在 (任期將至) 前往佛州 (Florida) 之前,川普期許新政府好運,並誓言以“某種形式”重返 (政壇/鎂光燈之下)。
