On Wednesday, President-Elect Joe Biden will be sworn into office as the 46th President of the United States. Biden has major plans for his first days in office.

His team has indicated dozens of executive orders and directives will be implemented, many that his chief of staff says will begin to fulfill campaign promises, "President Biden, is going to come into office and take decisive steps to roll back some of the most egregious moves of the Trump administration," said incoming White House Communications Director Kate Bedingfield.

On day one, President-elect Biden says he will rejoin the Pairs Climate Accord, mandate mask use on federal property for 100-days and extend the pause on student loan payments.
