Joe Biden’s top aide said the incoming president would sign about a dozen executive orders on his first day in office.
Incoming Biden chief of staff Ron Klain said in a memo to new White House senior staff that the executive orders would address the pandemic, the ailing US economy, climate change and racial injustice in America.
“All of these crises demand urgent action,” Klain said.
“In his first ten days in office, President-elect Biden will take decisive action to address these four crises, prevent other urgent and irreversible harms, and restore America’s place in the world,” Klain added.
Joe Biden will be inaugurated on Wednesday.
