Biden Plans Numerous First-Day Executive Orders Targeting Trump’s Legacy

President Joe Biden plans to issue 17 executive orders on Wednesday to roll back many of former President Donald Trump’s policies, CNN reports.

Biden plans to halt the construction of the border wall, reverse Trump’s Muslim ban, and reverse Trump’s decisions to leave the Paris Climate Accord and the World Health Organization.

Dr. Anthony Fauci, the report said, will become the head of the US delegation to the WHO.

Biden’s first executive order will be to impose a mask mandate on all federal property, a stark break from the former president, who mocked mask-wearing.

Biden also plans to install a new coronavirus response coordinator to run vaccine distribution.


Biden also plans to extend the nationwide eviction and foreclosure moratorium until at least March 31, according to the report.

He will also extend the moratorium on student loan payments and interest until at least September 30.

He will also issue an executive order barring workplace discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity.

Biden also plans to roll out additional policies over the next month targeting the economy and the pandemic.


Biden will also rollback Trump’s attempts to undermine the DACA progam and reverse his travel bans on Muslim countries while reinstalling travel bans on countries with high rates of coronavirus infections.

Biden also plans to rollback Trump’s expansion of immigration enforcement inside the country and will extend deferrals of deportation and work authorizations to some protected groups.

Biden also plans to scrap a Trump plan for non-citizens to be excluded from the Census. He will also rescind Trump’s 1776 Commission aimed at countering the teaching of slavery and the 1619 Project.

Biden will also issue an executive order strengthening ethics standards and will direct the White House to review Trump’s deregulation moves.
