Joe Biden plans 'shock and awe' repudiation of Donald Trump's key policies as soon as he enters office with executive orders to end 'Muslim ban,' re-start dreamers program and rejoin WHO and Paris Climate Accord

 Joe Biden plans to immediately sign a series of sweeping executive orders once taking office in January, reversing several of Donald Trump's key policies and reinstating programs the president has ended.

Near the top of Biden's list is rejecting Trump's policies regarding immigration, those close to his campaign told The Washington Post in a report published Sunday morning. These day one priorities include repealing a travel ban from a handful of Muslim-majority countries and restoring the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.

During Trump's four years, he ended DACA, which was an Obama-era program that allowed 'dreamers', or those brought to the U.S. illegally as children, to stay in the country.


People familiar with Biden's plans also say he plans to rejoin the U.S. in the Paris Climate Accords, which focuses on reducing the world's gas emissions, and reenter the World Health Organization, which Trump withdrew from in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic.

Biden plans to begin setting up his own coronavirus task force on Monday, which will be co-chaired by former Surgeon General Vivek Murthy and former Food and Drug Administration Commissioner David Kessler.

He also wants to swiftly appoint a supply commander to oversee production and distribution of testing and personal protective equipment like masks and gowns — and eventually vaccines.

The new task force could begin meeting within days to set forward a new strategy for dealing with the pandemic.  

'Folks, our work begins with getting COVID under control. We cannot restore the economy, our vitality or relish life's most pressures moment hugging our grandchildren, birthdays, graduations, all the matters that matter most to us until we get it on control,' Biden told the nation in an address on Saturday night, after he had been declared the winner of the election.

'On Monday I will name a group of leading scientists and experts as transition advisers to help take the Biden-Harris plan and convert it into an actual blueprint that will start on January the 20th, 2021,' he said.

The move to appoint a COVID czar first follows his promise to do so in his speech to the nation. It also means that his first appointee is a person of color - Murthy's parents are Indians who lived in Britain and Canada before immigrating to the U.S. when he was three - and also someone with previous career in government.

Alongside Murthy and Kessler, former Obama White House aide Dr. Zeke Emanuel will be on Biden's commission.

They are part of a group that has been advising Biden on the pandemic during his campaign. 

The plans for radical and quick changes within the presidency as soon as Biden enters office shows the vastly different priorities between Trump and the former vice president.
