Democratic nominee Joe Biden vowed on Twitter Sunday that if he is elected president, his administration "won't just rebuild the nation — we'll transform it," raising questions from critics about what exactly will be transformed and how he plans on accomplishing it.

Those on the left say the former vice president has spent more than 40 years in the federal government without solving any major issues, Fox News reported.

His critics on the right, however, fear Biden will take direction from those on the far-left of the Democratic Party. Who Biden chooses for his running mate will be an early indicator of which direction his administration will lean.

When asked by Fox News for a comment regarding his vague tweet, Biden's campaign sent a link to his website, which listed several of his policy points and plans.

  • Wide availability of free coronavirus testing
  • Emergency paid leave as a "decisive economic response"
  • An agenda for the black community
  • Criminal justice reform
  • An initiative for gun violence

Biden also appears to have some issues that need further explaining ahead of the 2020 presidential election on November 3, including his position against defunding the police — which Politico has called one of the Black Lives Matter movement's "boldest proposals."
