January 20th local time, President-elect and Democrat Biden was sworn in as the 46th President of the United States in Washington.
Biden signed a series of executive orders in the Oval Office that day, according to CNBC.
These executive orders cover many aspects, including the requirement to impose the wearing of masks, the agreement to allow the return of the United States to Paris, and the revocation of some directives by former President Trump, such as stopping the construction of the wall on the U.S.-Mexico border.
Biden’s first executive order also included a return to the WHO, ending the so-called Muslim travel ban, and demanding an extension of the suspension of student loan payments.
Earlier in the day, Biden told reporters that he would sign “bold” administrative measures on his debut at the Oval Office, CNN reported.
Biden told reporters, “There is no time to start like today.” He said that these actions are to fulfill his promise to the American people.
“We need legislation to solve many problems.”
Biden plans to take 17 administrative measures in the first few hours of taking office, which are faster and more active than any modern president in the United States to eliminate the legacy of his predecessor.
He will sign a series of executive orders, memorandums and institutional directives to take the first step in response to the coronavirus pandemic and repeal some of Trump’s landmark policies.
