    78-year-old Joe Biden took office as the 46th President of the US on Wednesday, immediately overturning some of the decisions of his predecessor, Donald Trump. Biden has often criticized the previous administration's response to the raging coronavirus pandemic.

    On Friday, US President Joe Biden delivered remarks on his administration's reaction to the economic crisis in Washington DC, as he is expected to sign executive orders to support American families amid the pandemic.

    Biden signed several executive orders on Thursday and set out the roadmap for his administration to combat the COVID-19 pandemic, including an attempt to vaccinate 100 million Americans within the next 100 days. The 198-page COVID-19 response program announced a week earlier is Biden's new $1.9 trillion economic relief proposal, designed to "get the virus under control" and tackle the economic crisis.
