President Donald J. Trump last Friday, just moments after being sworn in as the 45th U.S. President, rushed to fulfill one of the promises he made throughout his campaign, the abolishment of Obamacare.
Mr. Trump signed the executive order in order to allow for a smoother transition from the current healthcare system into a newer one, according to Sean Spicer, the White House press secretary.
No further details have been released on this matter at the moment.
Spicer also added that a memo is to be sent to all of the departments and government agencies in the United States that will demand a regulatory freeze.
Day One of Darkness
Donald Trump sent a clear and powerful message as he signed the executive order on just the first day as president of the United States.
The Affordable Care Act (ACA) currently covers health insurance for over 20 million U.S. citizens, and the consequences of removing it will surface in the future.
Mr. Trump has made the repeal of the ACA one of his utmost priorities to be carried out as soon as he was sworn in.
Obamacare was introduced by former President Barack Obama as a priority when he was sworn in back in 2009.
Mr. Trump removing the reformed health care passed by his predecessor the moment he was sworn serves itself as a self-explanatory message.
Furthermore, Mr. Trump also took to fulfill other tasks on the first day as the U.S. President.
The President then signed the necessary documents that officially appoint James Mattis to serve as the U.S. secretary of defense.
In addition to that, Mr. Trump also signed a document to appoint John Kelly to serve as the U.S. secretary of homeland security.
Many have already anticipated that such actions would be implemented by President Trump and already anticipate the worst is yet to come.
