On his first day in office, U.S. President Joe Biden plans to sign dozens of executive orders, among them also joining the Paris Agreement on climate change, Biden’s future chief of staff Ron Klein said, according to CNN.
He would also repeal a travel ban imposed mostly on Muslim countries, sign executive orders to stop evictions and student loans during a coronavirus pandemic, and impose a mandatory mask-wearing rule.
One of Biden’s most common campaign promises was to address an issue on his first day in office, a promise he usually made to either oppose President Donald Trump or to emphasize how important he thought an issue was. These promises were made on everything from climate change to immigration to foreign policy.
“During the campaign, President-elect Biden promised to take immediate action to begin to address these crises… As president, he will keep those promises and sign dozens of executive orders, presidential memoranda and directives to the Cabinet in fulfillment of the promises he made,” Klein said.
