Before I go any further… this post is not meant to advocate for or argue against any of the policies President Trump put in place during his first week in office. What it is meant to do is to make certain that millennials are well-informed on what’s going on in the Oval Office.
Some of President Trump’s first orders of business, in terms of both Executive Orders and Executive Actions, include the following:
- The potential repeal of the Affordable Care Act (ACA)
- Declaring January 20, 2017, his Inauguration Day, as the National Day of Patriotic Devotion
- The highly controversial withdrawal of the United States from the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP)
- A projected ban on refugees entering the United States from six different Middle Eastern countries, including Syria
- The signing of memos that will advance the progress of the Dakota Access Pipeline, which he voiced his support for before assuming the role of President
- The enforcement of a media blackout from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)
- The reinstatement of the Mexico City Policy, blocking funding to overseas groups that provide “access to or counseling about abortions”
- The signing of the executive order to build a wall at the U.S.-Mexico border, with the intent to seek reimbursement for federal funds used to build the wall from Mexico
In addition to ensuring that you are aware of all of the above that has been happening, this post serves another purpose. After reading and researching the facts, we want to hear from you.
We want to know what you think, how you feel and what you believe. If you support President Trump or you don’t. Even if you have your own idea of how certain policies should be handled, we want to hear about it. That’s what #NAMB is about, and you should be proud that you are staying informed (regardless of your political affiliation) instead of turning a blind eye to policy changes.
So, millennials…what do you think of President Trump’s first week in office, so far? How do you think it will affect millennials? Tweet us, email us and of course, let us know in the comment section below.
