Whatever evils Biden inherited from previous Administrations became his at 12 noon on 20 January 2021. Guantanamo, drones, torture, political prisoners, border policy—anything that can be changed by executive order is, justly, something he is choosing to actively continue. Also justly, anyone who makes excuses for his willful inaction is a complicit partner in evil.
Things that require court rulings and legislation are different. If a president is making efforts to work changes, I give him credit.
But Biden could do a LOT with executive orders. He’s choosing not to.
