From Fox News.
In his first hours as president Friday, Donald Trump ordered an immediate regulatory freeze and directed federal agencies to “ease the burden” of ObamaCare.
White House spokesman Sean Spicer told reporters that White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus would send a memo to all agencies ordering a hold on all regulations. Spicer declined to give further details on the ObamaCare order.
Trump was joined in the Oval Office by Vice President Mike Pence, Priebus and other top advisers as he signed the executive order on President Obama’s signature health law, which he opposed throughout his campaign.
Asked about his first day as president, Trump described it, “It was busy but good — a beautiful day.”
Trump also signed the commissions for his first two Cabinet appointments. Secretary of Defense James Mattis and Secretary of Homeland Security John Kelly were easily confirmed by the Senate earlier in the day. Both men were formally sworn in by Pence.
The GOP-controlled Congress needs to repeal and replace Obama’s oppressive, catastrophic healthcare Frankenstein ASAP.
