President-elect Joe Biden will waste no time in rolling back many of the decisions of the Trump administration. Biden plans on releasing a plethora of executive actions within hours of transitioning to power.
Among the issues that Biden plans on addressing on Day One is an end to the restriction on immigration to the U.S. from some Muslim countries. He will also rejoin the Paris climate accord and mandate mask-wearing on federal property and during interstate travel, according to his chief of staff Ron Klain.
Also, among the roughly a dozen actions that Biden will take will be measures to halt evictions and foreclosures and address student loan payments during the pandemic.
“During the campaign, President-elect Biden pledged to take immediate action to start addressing these crises and build back better,” Klain said. “As president, he will keep those promises and sign dozens of executive orders, presidential memoranda, and directives to Cabinet agencies in fulfillment of the promises he made.”
