Trump signs first executive order on Obamacare: Mattis, Kelly sworn in1:15
President Donald Trump signs his first executive order in the Oval Office directing agencies to ease the regulatory burdens associated with Obamacare as Vice President Mike Pence swears in Gen. James Mattis and John Kelly.
US President Donald Trump has spoken from the CIA, after he opened his first full day as president at a national prayer service, the final piece of transition business for the nation’s new chief executive before a promised full-on shift into governing.
At the CIA, President Trump said he wants to wipe ‘radical Islamic terrorism’ off the Earth.
Trump and his wife, Melania, and Vice President Mike Pence and his wife, Karen, sat in a front pew at Washington National Cathedral for the morning service after a day of pomp, pageantry and protests that accompanied his inauguration.
The service took place as millions of women, many of them wearing bright pink, pointy-eared ‘pussy cat hats’, descended on the nation’s capital and other cities around the world for marches organised to push back against the new president.
Celebrities who joined the march include Madonna, Charlize Theron, Scarlett Johansson and Alicia Keys among others.
Legions of women flooded streets and city squares from Sydney, Australia to Washington DC, marching in solidarity as a show of empowerment and a stand against President Trump.
More than 600 “sister marches” were planned across the country and abroad in conjunction with the Women’s March on Washington.
