CCCC: Perhaps Joe Biden establishing satellite center in place of power plant (5)
An easier one, since I've become rusty in cryptics once again lol
6:05 AM
it's either potus->lotus or lotus->potus... since there's no abbreviation indicated i'm gonna guess the former
so (p->L)OTUS
6:22 AM
@Jafe care to explain why?
power is abbreviated P, that is replaced by L which is the central letter in sate(L)lite
joe biden is the P.O.T.U.S. (president of the united states), and lotus is a plant
6:36 AM
^ @Jafe this was my intention, and so you're correct :D
