by Kunle Awosiyan

President Joe Biden has initiated 17 executive orders hours after his inauguration Wednesday, an attempt to dismantle his predecessor, Former president Trump’s legacies.

On president Biden’s signature list is his move to address the coronavirus pandemic by imposing a mask mandate on federal property, halting funding for the construction of Trump’s border wall, reversed the travel ban targeting largely Muslim countries and embraced progressive policies on the environment and diversity that Trump spent four years blocking.

Biden also reversed several of Trump’s attempts to withdraw from international agreements, beginning the process of rejoining the Paris climate accord and halting the United States’ departure from the World Health Organization.
