New US President Joe Biden has signed 15 executive orders in his first day in office, while Donald Trump became the first outgoing president in over 150 years not to attend the inauguration of his successor. The executive orders signed by Biden included restoring US membership of the World Trade Organisation and scrapping a controversial oil pipeline project linking Canada to the Gulf of Mexico, on a day that saw Kamala Harris become America’s first female Vice-President. Biden also directed that masks be worn by anyone involved in interstate commerce and on all federal property.
