Two of the members who were pulled have a history of making extremist statements.

During the inauguration, Biden will give a speech focused on unity. After the ceremony Biden is expected to sign multiple executive orders, reversing some of President Trump’s policies.
Within his first 100 days in office, Biden’s goal is to have 100 million vaccinated against COVID-19.
