is Joe Biden following a Trumpian path?

I'm not sure I agree with the following assessment.  See what you make of it:

I think the purpose of the video is more to troll Biden acolytes than to say anything substantive about Biden. This is because we can list any number of ways in which Biden's policies diverge from Trump's. Biden's own COVID response has been lame if not outright damaging to the country; the military action he took after a little over a month in office would seem to indicate he's not interested in peace; the various executive orders he signed—nullifying many of Trump's economically and socially beneficial initiatives—are in stark contrast to what Trump had done. Calling Biden a secret admirer of Trump is cute, but not likely in the least.  The video is amusing, but it's also trolling.
