President Trump is having a whirlwind first week in office, and these pictures prove it.
By Monday, which he considered his first working day in office, Trump got to work on some of his campaign promises, signing executive actions to roll back some of President Obama’s policies.
Among other things, Trump withdrew the United States from the Trans Pacific Partnership, green-lit construction on a wall along the U.S. border with Mexico, ordered a freeze on federal hiring and moved forward on two controversial oil pipelines.
He also made news when a planned visit with Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto was canceled over a dispute over whether Mexico could pay for the border wall. Trump later said that Mexico might end up paying indirectly through a U.S. tax reform measure.
