[Asia News Communication = Reporter Reakkana] Joe Biden has already kept his first promise that his approach to the presidency will be a top-to-bottom repudiation of the behavior, policies, and obsessions of President Donald Trump.

The President-elect is building his administration on old-fashioned notions that facts matter, that commanders-in-chief must project stability, that Cabinet officials need experience and expertise, that a fractured nation is governable and that the world wants the US to lead. In restoring a more conventional version of the presidency, Biden is using his mandate to counter the political forces that led to Trump's rise and which still delivered more than 73 million votes to the President, albeit in a losing cause.

His Washington restoration is not without risk and is already coming into conflict with Trump's blend of nihilistic conservatism that is likely to dictate the Republican Party's strategy even when he has left the Oval Office. "Let's begin the work to heal and unite America and the world," Biden said. His recruits, many of them protégés, represent the antithesis of the philosophy, style, and comportment of Trump's authoritarian, "America First" and anti-science White House that is driven by conspiracy theories and a personality cult.
