The Work Begins
Week one of the Trump Presidency has been completed and he is wasting no time starting the process of making America great again.
Here is a look at the President’s First Week in the Oval Office:
Easing Regulatory Burdens
Shortly after being sworn in, President Trump ordered federal agencies to ease the “regulatory burdens” of ObamaCare.
Agencies are ordered to “waive, defer, grant exemptions from, or delay the implementation of any provision or requirement” of Obamacare in hopes that this order will lower the burden on individuals, families and patients as the President and the Congress work on a permanent solution to Obamacare.
Withdrawing From TPP
The President wasted no time in ending the United States support of the disastrous TPP trade deal by withdrawing our country from it on Monday.
President Trump called the move, “a great thing for the American workers.”
Spurring American Jobs
On Tuesday, President Trump re-opened the door for the Keystone and Dakota Access pipeline to be built with an executive order.
Also included were related orders that would speed up the timeline on the project by streamlining the permitting process and cut through more government red tape.
Securing Our Borders
President Trump is moving forward with several items that will secure our borders and keep Americans safe!
He plans on stripping federal grant money to dangerous sanctuary cities, hiring 5,000 more Border Patrol agents, ending “catch-and-release” policies for illegal immigrants, and reinstating local and state immigration enforcement partnerships.
Remembering our Allies
President Trump met with British Prime Minister Theresa May, who said, “… we have the opportunity — indeed the responsibility — to renew the special relationship for this new age. We have the opportunity to lead, together, again.”
