Biden signs 15 executive orders to reverse Trump policies

US President Joe Biden, after being sworn in on Wednesday, signed 15 executive orders to reverse the policies of his predecessor, Donald Trump.

Biden is moving faster and more aggressively to dismantle his predecessor's legacy than any other modern president.

Biden has halted funding for the construction of a wall on the US-Mexico border, reversed his travel ban targeting largely Muslim countries and embraced 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 Washington’s departure from the World Health Organization.

Trump left the White House early on Wednesday and became the first president in more than 150 years not to attend his successor’s inauguration.

The inauguration crowd size was limited as a result of security concerns prompted by the deadly riot at the US Capitol on January 6.

Trump was impeached for “incitement to insurrection” for his role in the Capitol mayhem, becoming the first president in US history to be impeached twice.
