Joe Biden plans to reverse Trump decrees in his early days as president of the United States

President-elect Joe Biden has pledged to restore the United States to a leading role on the global stage by making a policy turnaround and repealing some of the decrees of his predecessor, Donald Trump.

According to Biden, he will begin to translate his campaign promises into reality at the beginning of his presidency.


First of all, he will focus on the coronavirus pandemic, writes CNN. In a speech on Monday after meeting with the 12-person coronavirus task force, Biden addressed the Americans asking them to stop politicizing basic public health precautions such as wearing masks and social distancing.

Biden has already announced who will sit on the coronavirus advisory board.
The task force is led by former chief surgeon Vivek Murthy, former FDA Commissioner David Kessler and Dr. Marcella Nunez-Smith of Yale University. The other thirteen members include Dr. Luciana Borio, Senior Fellow for Global Health at the Council on Foreign Relations, and Dr. Zeke Emanuel, co-author of the Affordable Care Act and former Obama health adviser.

They will be joined by Rick Bright, a former Trump administration official who claimed his early warnings of the pandemic were ignored and eventually led to his firing.

Paris Climate Agreement

Biden has repeatedly pledged on his first day in office to re-join the Paris Climate Agreement — which Trump abandoned in 2017.


Biden also pledged that he will again join the World Health Organization, from which Trump withdrew this year.

Travel ban

Biden is set to lift travel bans from some Muslim countries.


Biden will reinstate a program that was in place during the Obama administration that allowed undocumented «dreamers» who entered the United States as children to remain in the country.

Biden listed a number of other priorities during the campaign, including protecting union officials, and tackling systemic racism, climate change, and oppression of transgender youth.

In addition, the president-elect pledged to take steps to reform the government regarding lobbying issues, as well as «any other influence from personal, financial and other interests.»
