Trump’s first executive order on Obamacare

By Matthew Mancini (’18)

On Friday, January 20, 2017, Trump signed an executive order in the Oval Office that will “direct agencies to ease the regulatory burdens associated with Obamacare”. Trump and the Republican-held U.S. Congress will continue to implement this act until they discover a way to repeal and replace the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.

Trump also signed confirmation for his first two cabinet positions: Defense Secretary, James Mattis, and Homeland Security Secretary, John Kelly, who were confirmed by the Senate on Friday.
