Can Biden do more than just undoing Trump’s anti-immigration legacy?

{ object.primary_image.title }}

A backlash from Trump—and a need for essential workers—may create the urgency for Biden to push for real immigration reform, not just administrative fixes. It’s now an image forever etched into the history of America: Donald Trump descending the gold escalator of his Fifth Avenue hotel to announce his candidacy for president. The words he delivered after would be just as long-lasting. “When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best,” he famously spouted, not even two minutes into his 45-minute campaign launch speech . “They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.” It was evident from the very start that Donald Trump’s presidency was founded on anti-immigrant sentiment.

Donald Trump is a loser

{ object.primary_image.title }}

And thankfully, we’ll also be losing these 14 things as we usher the loser out and welcome Joe Biden as the new president. As the expression goes, Donald Trump was born on third base and thought he hit a triple. Knowing his penchant for spectacular confabulations, however, he might instead say that he was born an inch away from home plate and was sure he invented baseball. Read Full Story

Donald Trump’s niece says this week’s attack on the Capitol might not be Trump’s final act. Not by a long shot.

The border wall is destroying ecosystems. Biden can fix it

{ object.primary_image.title }}

The miles of wall built by the Trump administration have interrupted animal migration paths and caused enormous ecological damage. Even if Biden won’t remove it, he can take actions to mitigate the problem. While Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign focused heavily on his “build the wall” slogan, the story of the Trump administration’s actual wall is one of billions in government spending, fraudulent fundraising campaigns, and failed promises (no payment from Mexico has come yet). But hundreds of miles of wall were successfully built, so its most lasting legacy might be the ecological destruction it has wrought. Even if President-elect Joe Biden doesn’t remove the wall entirely, environmentalists hope he will take steps to mitigate its damage. Read Full Story

Breaking down President Biden’s data-driven social media strategy

{ object.primary_image.title }}

Just days before the 2020 Presidential election, we reported that Joe Biden was outperforming Donald Trump on social media by certain key metrics. Despite the penetrating volume of Trump’s Twitter feed, Biden was earning more interactions per tweet, and far more interactions per user. Not only was Biden winning on Twitter, but his campaign was making an impact on YouTube and even on Twitch. And, of course, he won the election. But this wasn’t a social media campaign based on flair and instinct: it was tightly driven by social analytics. No-one can better explain how that worked in practice than Sarah Galvez, Director of Social Media and Audience Development at Biden for President. Sarah J. Galvez “I started out like many millennials as a consumer of the internet and social media,” Galvez told us. “I think I started my Twitter account in a computer lab while I was in high …

He discredited his own coronavirus advisor Anthony Fauci, his cabinet has refused to wear masks at the White House, and there have been multiple White House outbreaks over the past year.
