The newly sworn President of the United States, Joe Biden has been busy in 'undoing Trump' since his first day at the office.

In such an attempt, the US president now seeks to rejoin the United Nations Human Rights Council and reverse Trump's 'America First' policies.

Secretary of State, Antony Blinken, will announce the return of the US to the world body, on Monday. Previously, the US had pulled out of the body for "anti-Israel biases," during the Trump Administration.

UNHRC members often speak against the Human Rights violations by the State of Israel against the Palestinians, which likely upset the Former President. 

Blinken will be announcing the return to UNHRC as an observer and seeking to be the full member.

Earlier, Biden reversed Trump's decision and joined the Paris accord.
