President Trump spent his first full business day in office signing three major executive orders, each one was part of the campaign promises he made to American voters last year.
Executive Order #1: Immediately withdraw the U.S. from the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), a multilateral free-trade agreement between the U.S. and eleven other countries. Even Bernie Sanders spoke out with praise with this statement:
“I am glad the Trans-Pacific Partnership is dead and gone,” Sanders said. “For the last 30 years, we have had a series of trade deals — including the North American Free Trade Agreement, permanent normal trade relations with China and others — which have cost us millions of decent-paying jobs and caused a ‘race to the bottom’ which has lowered wages for American workers. Now is the time to develop a new trade policy that helps working families, not just multinational corporations. If President Trump is serious about a new policy to help American workers, then I would be delighted to work with him.”
Executive Order #2: Mexico City policy also known as the “global gag rule” which blocks U.S. taxpayer funds from going to international family-planning organizations that provide abortion related services.
Yes America, you have been funding abortions in other countries. Who knew?
Executive Order #3: President Trump has imposed a hiring freeze throughout the federal government on non-military workers. This is the first step toward ending waste, fraud and abuse that will ultimately result in that promise to “drain the swamp.”
My friend Angela sent me a text earlier that read “Finally, a President doing what we’ve elected him to do!”
My response: “I told you, he will NOT settle for anything less than going down in the history books as the BEST President EVAH!”
I said it throughout the campaign season and I stand behind my comment to this day.
