US President Joe Biden has signed two healthcare executive orders which he said were to undo the damage done by his predecessor Donald Trump.

The first executive order was about restoring the Affordable Care Act and Medicaid to the way they were before Trump became president.

Biden alleged that under his predecessor, they were more inaccessible, more expensive and more difficult for people to qualify for either of those two items.

The second executive order was about protecting women's health at home and abroad.
