Finally, the moment we’ve all been waiting for. President Trump is now officially the current and 45th president of the United States! Unlike Obama, Trump has made the most of his first hours and already begun to erase the entire Obama presidency, here’s what he’s done so far..By Friday evening, Trump sat down to sign an executive order directing agencies to ease the burdens of Obamacare. The White House also said Chief of Staff Reince Priebus would be directing agencies to impose an “immediate regulatory freeze.”
“The time for empty talk is over. Now arrives the hour of action,” Trump declared in his inaugural address earlier on the West Front of the Capitol, issuing a fiery condemnation of business as usual in Washington.
Next up, he signed another document allowing General James Mattis to be sworn into cabinet and to serve as Defence Secretary.
The president presided over the traditional inaugural fanfare, taking part in the parade down Pennsylvania Avenue before an evening of balls and other festivities. But on the sidelines, his team already was making its mark, part of what Trump called a “new vision.”
“From this day forward, it’s going to be only America first,” Trump said. “I will fight for you with every breath in my body, and I will never, ever let you down. … We will bring back our jobs, we will bring back our borders, we will bring back our wealth and we will bring back our dreams.”
Telling the American people this is “your moment” and “your day,” Trump closed his speech with the promise that started it all: “We will make America great again.”
