President Trump has wasted no time getting down to business initiating a new missile defence system for the U.S and rolling back the Affordable Care Act otherwise known as Obamacare.
Trump issued the executive orders before attending a series of inaugural balls.
In relation to Obamacare, the last President’s signature policy, the order notes that they seek a “prompt repeal” allowing Health and Human Services Department together with federal agencies to delay implantation that might incur a cost.
The new missile defence is designed to repel threats from Iran and North Korea.
The White House website stripped away any mention of LGBT rights and the civil rights history section. Instead, a visitor to the site will see energy, foreign policy, jobs and growth, military, law enforcement, and trade deals.
President Trump’s inaugural speech which some have likened to a campaign speech rather than a unifying speech, made clear that America would be first. He said, “The American carnage stops right here, right now. From this day forward, a new vision will govern our land. From this day forward, it’s going to be only America first. America first.”
Later on the speech he declared, “We will follow two simple rules: buy American and hire American.”
The American leader received the obligatory thanks from leaders across the world. Including British Prime Minister Theresa May who is eager to strike a trade deal with the U.S given the country is leaving the EU.
She said, “I’m confident we can look at areas even in advance of being able to sign a formal trade deal. Perhaps we could look at barriers to trade at the moment and remove some of those barriers to open up that new trading relationship.”
President Trump, a successful business man before entering the White House, has said he will take a very businesslike approach to the presidency. After day one few could argue that he has deviated from this.
