US President Joe Biden has revoked seven executive orders by his predecessor President Donald Trump, and which were signed from May 2020 to January 2021. Shortly before Biden's inauguration, Trump had signed a number of executive orders, RIA Novosti reported.
According to the White House, Biden has repealed a rule introduced by Trump, according to which immigration authorities could refuse to issue a residence permit under the pretext that the given immigrant could become a "burden" on US taxpayers. Biden said in a statement that this is not in the best interests of the United States, urging his administration to make the necessary changes to the respective rules.
In addition, Biden rescinded the executive order on the protection of American monuments and statues, and which Trump had signed after the demolition of monuments to the heroes of the US colonial era, amid protests against racism across the country.
The executive orders on the construction of a park of statue of American heroes, on the rebranding of US aid abroad, on protecting US officials from prosecution for violating various regulations, as well as on the prevention of online censorship will also cease to apply.
