United States President-elect Joe Biden is hours away from assuming office as his inauguration ceremony is about to kick off on January 20. Shortly after occupying the Oval Office, Biden will restore the US to the Paris climate accord and the World Health Organisation, according to his aides.
As soon as Biden takes charge, he will sign 17 orders and do away with outgoing President Donald Trump’s policies on immigration, environment, economy and handling of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Biden will end Trump’s ban on visitors from several Muslim-majority countries and halt the construction of the US-Mexico border wall, his aides told international news agency Agence France-Presse (AFP).
