President Biden ridding country of some Trump policies

From Morning Report, 7:17 am on 22 January 2021

It's been a whirlwind first 24 hours in the Oval Office for president Joe Biden, who yesterday signed the first orders to rid the country of some of Donald Trump's policies.

He's re-joined the Paris Climate Accords and World Health Organisation, revoked the so-called Muslim travel ban, and funding for the border wall has been cut off.

Biden's also cleansing the office itself, vowing to fire anyone who treats their co-workers with disrespect.
