    Trump sworn in as 45th president, promises to protect 'America first'

    January 20, 2017

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ], the businessman and former reality television star, was sworn in Friday as the 45th president of the United States, promising to put "America first."

    Under overcast skies and the U.S. Capitol, Trump took the oath of office from Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts.

    "This is your day. This is your celebration. And this, the United States of America, is your country," Trump declared. "The oath of office I take today is an oath of allegiance to all Americans."

    "From this day forward, it's going to be only America first, America first," he asserted. "Every decision on trade, on taxes, on immigration, on foreign affairs will be made to benefit American workers and American families. We must protect our borders from the ravages of other countries making our product, stealing our companies and destroying our jobs."

    He added: "Protection will lead to great prosperity and strength. I will fight for you with every breathe in my body and I will never ever let you down."

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    All any of us can do now is pray that President Trump does a good job. Wishing him to fail is wishing all Americans fail. I, for one hope and pray he does a wonderful job so my family/friends and other Americans will prosper.

    Trump blasts media, takes message 'straight to the people'
    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
    U.S. President Donald Trump mounted a vigorous defence of his presidency Thursday, pushing back against media reports that his campaign advisers had inappropriate contact with Russian officials and vowing to crack down on the leaking of classified information.
    Nearly a month into his presidency, Trump said during a free-wheeling White House news conference that his new administration had made "significant progress" and took credit for an optimistic business climate and a soaring stock market.

    The president denounced media reports of a chaotic start to his administration marked by a contentious executive order — now tied up in a legal fight — to place a ban on travellers from seven predominantly Muslim nations.

    "This administration is running like a fine-tuned machine," Trump declared. The president said he would announce a "new and very comprehensive order to protect our people."

    I agree. Good for him and good for us. I am disappointed that his travel ban was shut down but I understand he is drafting another. I am so thankful for a President that puts America and her people first.

    Do they really believe we care what they think. They live in a pretend world while we live in the real world.

    They were all going to Canada if Trump was elected. Now they are going to strike. Bet if they get a movie deal the strike will be quickly over.

    Saying he was “outraged beyond words,” Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA) posted a response to anti-Trump protesters who stormed his office and knocked down a 71-year-old staffer, sending her to the hospital.

    The event consisted of about 100 protesters outside the office building, while another dozen headed inside Rohrabacher’s office to deliver Valentine’s Day cards demanding he hold a town hall event to hear their grievances against President Donald Trump.

    President Trump has had a very busy and productive first month!


    President Donald J. Trump’s First Month: Achieving Results for the American People



    FEBRUARY 20, 2017 AT 11:38 AM ET BY THE WHITE HOUSE

    After one month in office, President Donald J. Trump is already achieving results for the American people.

    Jump starting Job Creation: President Trump is looking out for American workers that Washington has left behind.


    • Signed a Presidential Memorandum ordering the United States to withdraw from the Trans-Pacific Partnership negotiations and agreement
    • Hosted the CEO of Intel to announce Intel’s plan to invest $7 billion in a United States factory that will create 10,000 American jobs
    • Signed a Presidential Memorandum to clear roadblocks to construction of the Keystone XL Pipeline Signed a Presidential Memorandum declaring that the Dakota Access Pipeline serves the national interest and initiating the process to complete construction
    • Signed a Presidential Memorandum ordering that all new pipeline construction and repair work use materials and equipment from the United States
    • Signed legislation, House Joint Resolution 38, to block the burdensome Stream Protection Rule from causing further harm to the coal industry
    • Signed legislation, House Joint Resolution 41, to eliminate a costly regulation that threatened to put domestic extraction companies and their employees at an unfair disadvantage


    Saving Taxpayers Money: President Trump is fighting to save Americans’ hard-earned tax dollars.

    • Saved Americans $700 million on a new batch of F-35 fighters
    • Capped the cost of Boeing’s next-generation Air Force One fleet at millions below that which was agreed to by the Obama administration


    Restoring Public Safety: President Trump will work to reduce the threats of crime and illegal immigration to public safety.

    • Signed an Executive Order to enhance the safety and security of the United States by, among other things, constructing a wall on the southern border
    • Signed an Executive Order to make sure Federal immigration laws are faithfully enforced throughout the country and that Americans’ tax dollars do not go to jurisdictions that obstruct the enforcement of immigration laws
    • Signed an Executive Order that directs the Attorney General to develop a strategy to more effectively prosecute people who engage in crimes against law enforcement officers
    • Signed an Executive Order that establishes a task force, led by the new Attorney General, to reduce crime and restore public safety in communities across America
    • Signed an Executive Order that re-focuses the Federal Government’s energy and resources on dismantling transnational criminal organizations, such as drug cartels


    Getting Government Out of the Way: President Trump understands that excessive regulations stifle job-creation and harm our businesses.

    • Signed an Executive Order instructing Federal agencies “to minimize the burden” of the Affordable Care Act Required that for every new Federal regulation, two existing regulations be eliminated
    • Directed the Commerce Department to streamline Federal permitting processes for domestic manufacturing and to reduce regulatory burdens on domestic manufacturers
    • Signed an Executive Order expediting the environmental review and approval processes for domestic infrastructure projects


    An America First Foreign Policy: The President’s first priority is the safety and security of the American people.

    • Department of the Treasury sanctioned 25 entities and individuals involved in Iran’s ballistic missile program
    • Signed a Presidential Memorandum directing the Secretary of Defense to work with other Cabinet members to develop a plan to defeat ISIS
    • Called or met with more than 30 foreign leaders


    Draining the Swamp: President Trump has taken action to ensure that all members of his Administration are working for the American people.

    • Signed an Executive Order establishing new ethics commitments for all Executive branch appointees, putting in place a five-year lobbying ban and a permanent ban on lobbying for foreign governments, so appointees serve the American people instead of their own interests
    • Put in place a hiring freeze for Federal civilian employees to stop the growth of a bloated government


    Keeping His Promise to Defend the Constitution: President Trump promised a Supreme Court justice in the mold of the late Justice Antonin Scalia.

    • Nominated Judge Neil M. Gorsuch to the Supreme Court because of his consistent record defending the Constitution


    Helping Women Succeed in Business: President Trump knows the country cannot reach its potential unless every American has a chance to prosper.

    • Launched the United States-Canada Council for Advancement of Women Entrepreneurs and Business Leaders


    President Trump has spent the last 30 days fulfilling promises and helping the American people.

    He’s looking forward to the many more successful months and years of action to come.
