Headlines from wires confirming the well-trailed stories that after his inauguration as president later today, Joe Biden will sign 17 executive orders reversing some of President Donald Trump's key policies, as well as implementing some of his own.

  • These include: the US rejoining the WHO and becoming a signatory to the Paris Climate Agreement once again, reversing the Muslim travel ban, halting construction on the Mexico border wall, halting the Keystone XL oil pipeline (much to Canada's chagrin), requiring face masks to be worn in all federal buildings.
  • Other executive orders will seek to revoke Trump policies on immigration enforcement, environmental standards, and to promote racial equality.
  • Notably, the slew of executive orders does not include the rejoining of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPoA, the Iran nuclear deal), which Trump withdrew the US from in 2018.
