Apart from giving his inaugural address—which sketched a departure from longstanding U.S. foreign policy—and attending the inaugural balls, Trump has made a few concrete moves as President.
Here’s a quick look:
• Withdrew the United States from the Trans Pacific Partnership, a 12-nation trade deal he had heavily criticized as a candidate as not protecting American workers enough.
• Reinstated the so-called Mexico City policy, which bars federal money from going to foreign nonprofits which promote or perform abortions.
• Ordered a freeze on federal hiring other than for military, public safety and public health jobs.
• Reversed a planned cut on mortgage insurance for many first-time homebuyers.
• Ordered executive branch agencies to begin preparing for the repeal of the Affordable Care Act, so far a mostly symbolic action that could be used to undermine the law’s enforcement.
• Formally submitted his Cabinet nominations to the U.S. Senate, which has now confirmed Defense Secretary James Mattis and Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly, and signed a waiver for Mattis.
• Moved forward on the Dakota Access and Keystone XL oil pipelines.
• Ended a policy known as “catch and release,” under which some immigrants are released from detention while they await a hearing with an immigration judge.
• Ended federal funding to sanctuary cities and states, which opt out of reporting undocumented immigrants.
• Kept FBI Director James Comey, who both he and Hillary Clinton criticized over his handling of her private email server, on the job.
• Named net neutrality critic Ajit Pai to lead the Federal Communications Commission.
• Spoke with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu by phone, signaling that a promise to move the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem won’t be fulfilled immediately.
• Made plans to meet British Prime Minister Theresa May as well as Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto.
