US President-elect Joe Biden has revealed what he will do in the first 100 days of his administration. Biden has said that the first thing he will do is to immediately reverse all executive orders signed by the outgoing president Donald Trump. The former vice-president added that he will introduce an immigration bill during the first 100 days of his administration, which will see a u-turn from Trump's "cruel" immigration policies that had banned citizens of seven Muslim-majority countries.

Biden, while talking to reporters, also said that he will request the US Congress for additional funding to tackle the COVID-19 pandemic. The Democratic leader further added that the United States will return to the Paris Climate Agreement, from which Donald Trump had withdrawn Washington in 2017, claiming the accord was meant to suck trillions of dollars in American taxpayers' money and divert them to highly-polluting countries.

'Will administer 100 million doses' 

Biden also said that his administration is committed to administering more than 100 million COVID-19 vaccine shots in the first 100 days. The Trump administration is facing a lot of criticism for not meeting the initial target of inoculating at least 20 million people before the end of 2020. According to the Centre for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the United States managed to vaccinate only 3 million people before the end of last year, way short of the target set by the government.
