JOE BIDEN will begin reversing Donald Trump's policies today after he signed executive orders issuing a mask mandate, rejoining the Paris Agreement, and "ending his predecessor's 'Muslim Travel Ban.'" After being sworn in on Wednesday afternoon, Biden will stop construction of a wall along the southern border with Mexico – and will lift a ban on visa applications from 13 Muslim-majority countries.

Prior to signing a series of legislative orders in the White House, Biden said: "There's no time to start like today." Biden signed the first three executive orders as he sat in the Oval Office on Wednesday evening.

"This is going to be the first of many [inaudible] we're going to have in here," he said. "I thought with the state of the nation today there's no time to waste and - as I indicated earlier - we need to get to work immediately."

The 78-year-old Democrat confirmed "a number of executive orders" will be signed over the upcoming days and week.
