Biden Dissolves Controversial Trump Orders On Race And Culture

Biden Signs Sweeping Executive Order on Cybersecurity

Biden Signs Sweeping Executive Order on Cybersecurity

Biden's decision to cancel the plan marks a highly symbolic distancing of his administration from the Trump-era White House.

Biden could have modified Trump's initial order but instead revoked it entirely.

The White House announced the move without much statement regarding the matter.

Mr Trump himself chose some of the figures to be included in the project: singer Whitney Houston, 19th Century anti-slavery icon Harriet Tubman, NBA star Kobe Bryant, 18th Century frontiersman Davy Crockett, Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia and evangelist Billy Graham.

But no site was selected and the garden was never funded by Congress.

Biden also rescinded Trump's executive order that called for a crackdown on social media companies, after Twitter began labeling some of his tweets for fact-checking purposes.

Trump's order came after statues were vandalized, specifically those statues honoring the Confederacy, during nationwide protests over racial injustice after the killing of George Floyd while in police custody previous year, Fox 19 Now reported.

The other three executive orders Biden squashed related to Trump's controversial bid to limit USA foreign aid for certain countries; his push to exclude immigrants who couldn't prove they had health insurance, and an obscure effort to redefine certain categories of white-collar crimes to prevent "overcriminalization".

The president also squashed executive orders trying to redefine certain categories of white-collar crimes to prevent "overcriminalization" and limit USA foreign aid for certain countries.

Mr Trump issued an order in June 2020 instructing the federal government "to prosecute to the fullest extent" any person "that destroys, damages, vandalizes, or desecrates a monument, memorial, or statue".

The order came after a couple of attacks undermining the country's cybersecurity strength.

It is one of the first many ambitious steps that the Biden administration is taking to modernize the nation's cyber defenses, The White House said.

The US President also said that senior administration officials shall review any regulations, orders, guidance documents, policies, and any other similar agency actions developed pursuant to Proclamation 9945 and, as appropriate, issue revised guidance consistent with the policy set forth in this proclamation.
