President-elect Joe Biden is planning to get straight to work on his first day in office. Biden plans to sign “roughly a dozen” executive orders that will undo controversial Trump policies, including reversing the travel ban on several majority Muslim countries and rejoining the Paris Climate accord, a memo from incoming chief of staff Ron Klain explained.
According to Business Insider, these executive orders are part of Biden’s larger 10-day plan to roll back Trump’s signature policies on immigration, climate change, and the COVID-19 crisis as the incoming administration.
“President-elect Biden is assuming the presidency in a moment of profound crisis for our nation,” Klain said in the memo. “We face four overlapping and compounding crises: the COVID-19 crisis, the resulting economic crisis, the climate crisis, and a racial equity crisis.”
