President-elect Donald Trump announced he plans to start work on day one, but the clock starts the Monday after his inauguration, according to a Monday interview with the Times of London.
Trump promised to get to work immediately on key issues like replacing Obamacare, putting an end to illegal immigration, and promoting manufacturing jobs growth in the nation’s heartland.
“… [D]ay one – which I will consider to be Monday as opposed to Friday or Saturday. Right? I mean my day one is gonna be Monday because I don’t want to be signing and get it mixed up with lots of celebration,” Trump said in the interview, according to The Hill.
Trump previously asserted that he would reverse key Obama executive orders on his first day in office, including orders that would change how illegal immigrants are processed during investigations. “We will begin moving them out day one,” he said. “Day one, my first hour in office, those people are gone,” Trump said earlier in January. Trump could also exercise nearly unlimited control on the actions of the Environmental Protection Agency, severely limiting the agency’s power in enforcing ever-changing internal rules.
Trump also has the ability to change the terms of the North American Free Trade Agreement, (NAFTA) or withdraw from the agreement completely on his first day in office.
