Week 2: The Constitution And Our Country’s Safety
Week two is in the books and President Trump is showing no sign of slowing down. He is working hard moving full steam ahead to Make America Great Again and drain the Washington D.C. swamp.
The Administration is working hard to accomplish campaign promises dealing with healthcare, the economy, government ethics, and more. One of the major items being tackled is improving our immigrant screening process.
Part of this work is to address our inadequate immigration vetting procedures. To ensure American safety the President imposed a temporary travel ban on 7 countries known for training, harboring and export terrorism. One of the major projects being undertaken is improving the vetting process for those entering the United States. This travel ban is not about religion - this is about keeping our country safe.
There are over 40 majority Muslim countries worldwide that are not affected by this order. The White House will again be issuing visas to all countries once the Administration has reviewed and implemented the more secure policies over the next 90 days.
To learn more about the rest of the President's week and his work for the American people, just scroll.
- Nominating A Well Qualified Pick For The Supreme Court
President Trump has announced his nominee to fill the ninth seat of the Supreme Court. Judge Neil Gorsuch has built a nationally respected and distinguished judicial record and reputation. Gorsuch is a well qualified pick to uphold our Constitution and be a worthy successor to the late Justice Scalia, but don't take our word for it - SEE WHAT THE CRITICS ARE SAYING.
- Advocating for Lower Medical Costs & More Medical Jobs in the U.S.
This week, President Trump met with pharmaceutical executives at the White House. US drug companies have produced extraordinary results for our country, but the pricing has been astronomical for our citizens. During the meeting, President Trump, focused on cutting regulations to encourage drug companies to bring back operations and jobs to The United States.
- Putting Ethics Into Practice And Draining The Swamp
President Trump wasted no time creating an executive order that will make every appointee in every executive agency sign an ethics pledge. By signing this pledge, these people are not allowed to engage in lobbying activities within 5 years of leaving their post and are not allowed to accept any gifts from registered lobbyists or lobbying organization. The days of cashing in on your political network and influence are limited, and President Trump is starting this practice right in his own administration.
- Reducing Regulations - Big League
On Monday, President Donald Trump signed an executive order that he said will “dramatically reduce federal regulations” on businesses. The President's executive order mandates that for every new regulation implemented by federal agencies, two existing regulations must be cut. The goal is to end the damaging effects of over-regulation on our small businesses, our economy and our entrepreneurial spirit. President Trump wants all Americans to know that the American dream is back, and we’re going to create an environment for small business like we haven’t had in many, many decades.
- Supporting Our Troops
President Trump traveled to Dover Air Force Base on Wednesday to pay respects to a fallen hero, SEAL Team 6 member, Chief Petty Officer William "Ryan" Owens. President Trump was honored to be there for the dignified transfer and give thanks for his sacrifice. Owens took part in a daring raid that the Administration resulted in valuable intelligence that will protect American lives. “What he did for this nation and what we got out of the mission I believe will save lives,” said Press Secretary Sean Spicer.
