President Donald Trump was sworn in as the 45th President on the 20th of January and he immediately started fulfilling his pledges to the American people. It is without a doubt that all President Trump does is win.

On the 3rd of February, President Trump signed an executive order that seeks to ease U.S. fiscal regulations in the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010, this was in response to the financial crisis and the Great Recession that Trump’s administration has called overreaching.

The President ordered the Labor Department to review a rule imposed by Obama that requires financial managers to act in their clients’ best interest as they handle the retirement accounts. The Labor Department will determine whether such a mandate is necessary.

In regards to the Supreme Court, President Trump nominated Federal Appellate Judge Neil McGill Gorsuch on the 31st of January to replace Associate Justice Antonin Scalia on the Supreme Court.

On the 30th of January, Trump also signed an executive order requiring that for every new federal regulation on small and large businesses, two existing regulations must be removed. Trump signed the document after a meeting with small business leaders, adding that he wants to end regulatory discrepancy between big and small business.

The White House Spokesman also announced that the CIA was added to Trump’s National Security Council, this was totally different from what the previous administration did after he creation of the national intelligence director post in 2005.

On the 28th of January, President Trump reorganized the National Security Council, adding his chief strategist, Steve Bannon. The council is a panel of officials, most of whom are Cabinet level, who will work with the President to determine the best course of action on security matters.

Trump signed an executive order on the 27th of January to provide new resources and equipment to strengthen the U.S. Military. The executive order promises to rebuild American armed forces and upgrade national and global security as part of a strategy that will dictate peace through strength. The Defense Secretary James Mattis was directed by the order to assess the country’s nuclear and military capabilities.

President Trump is also very keen on Visa vetting, he signed an executive order that calls for more intensive security checks for foreign nationals seeking U.S. travel visas. This stems from a controversial proposal that Trump made in his campaign period where he said that he’d prevent certain refugees from nations of concern like Iraq and Syria from reaching the U.S. unless cleared.

On the 25th of January, Trump signed an executive action directing the federal agencies to prepare foor immediate construction of a wall on the U.S. -Mexico border – a controversial project that was at the center of his presidential campaign.

On the 24th of January, President Trump signed an executive order that will allow the Dakota Access and restart the process for the construction of the Keystone XL oil pipeline from Canada.

In regards to abortion, Trump signed a presidential memorandum reviving a rule that prevents U.S. funds from going to certain health charities around the globe that counsel on abortions. President Ronald Reagan instituted the Mexico City policy back in 1984, however, it has been off the books ever since.

Trump also signed a presidential memorandum withdrawing the United States from the trade deal with Asia. The pact has been criticized by many who claim that it has the potential to kill the U.S. jobs.

Shortly after being inaugurated into office, Trump took his first step toward repealing the Affordable Care Act, he signed an executive order that called on government agencies to ease the burden of the policy. His order asked Federal agencies to prepare to afford the states more flexibility and control to create a more free and open healthcare market.

The President also suspended the homeowner’s insurance which was a scheduled insurance rate cut for new homeowners, which had been set by Barack Obama’s government. This cut would have reduced annual insurance premiums for new Federal Housing Administration loans by 25 basis points from 0.85 to 0.60.
