Joe Biden signs 17 executive orders on first day in Oval Office, reversing Trump's wall and rejoining Paris climate deal

Joe Biden on Wednesday began signing 17 executive orders, memorandums and proclamations addressing the coronavirus pandemic, climate change and racial inequality, and immediately undoing some policies put in place by his predecessor Donald Trump.

The actions, fulfilling his promise to move quickly on Day One of his presidency, initiate the process of the US rejoining the Paris climate accord, ending the "Muslim travel ban" and diverting funds from building the wall on the Mexico border. The first order he signed as president mandates face masks on all federal property.

Earlier, Mr Biden was sworn in as the 46th President of the US and promised to "end this uncivil war that pits red against blue".

In his address, the President told the American people that "democracy has prevailed" and called for unity. "Just days after a riotous mob thought they could use violence to silence the will of the people, to stop the work of our democracy, to drive us from this sacred ground, it did not happen. It will never happen. Not today. Not tomorrow, not ever, not ever."
