Newly minted incoming White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer says Donald Trump has an agenda in place for day one in office, and it involves repealing a good chunk of President Barack Obama’s executive actions.
Spicer told ABC News’s This Week that President-elect Trump “on day one” will “sign a series of executive orders.”
Those executive orders will “repeal a lot of the regulations and actions that have been taken by this administration over the last eight years that have hampered both economic growth and job creation.”
Rolling back some of the damage Obama has done during his time in office sounds like a hell of a start to the Trump administration.
President-elect Donald Trump plans to repeal a raft of President Barack Obama’s executive actions in his first day in office, Trump’s incoming White House press secretary said Sunday.
Sean Spicer, Trump’s incoming White House press secretary, said on ABC’s “This Week” that Trump will immediately “repeal a lot of the regulations and actions that have been taken by this administration over the last eight years that have hampered both economic growth and job creation.
“It was one of two moves Spicer said Trump will make immediately after he takes the oath of office.
He didn’t specify which executive actions Trump will repeal.
However, Trump has long been critical of Obama’s moves on immigration, energy regulation and foreign policy, and could look for ways to undo those and other actions.
Spicer went on to explain that Trump will also use executive orders to implement a “forward thinking” program which will include five year moratoriums on lobbying activity after leaving the administration.
“If you want to serve in a Trump administration,” Spicer said, “you’re going to serve this country, not yourself.”
As it should be.
