As proof that Trump intends to keep his word on dismantling and replacing Obamacare, his initial act as president was to sign his first executive order shortly after his inaugural parade ended. He directed agencies to ease the regulatory burdens associated with Obamacare as the U.S. Congress determines how to repeal and replace the costly and cumbersome law. In Arizona, Obamacare premiums jumped a whopping 116% — hardly affordable, although Obamacare’s official title is the Affordable Care Act.
The stock market responded by closing higher in a broad-based advance as Donald Trump was sworn in as the 45th U.S. President — marking the first time in more than 50 years that a new Commander-in-Chief has been welcomed by a rising equity market on his first day in office. It is also the first time a successful businessman with no prior political experience, who is determined to return jobs to the USA, has won by rebuffing the establishment machine and taking his message directly to the people.
On President Trump’s website is his commitment to “Stand Up For Our Law Enforcement Community,” something sorely missing during the Obama years as that president welcomed Black Lives Matters thugs to the White House despite their advocating the murder of police. Finally we have a Commander-In-Chief who respects and values our law enforcement personnel.
True to form is the still bitter John McCain, continuing to lick his wounds as the wrong 2008 candidate who lost decisively 45.7% – 52.9% to Barack Obama. Asked if Trump hit the right tones during his inaugural speech, McCain was quoted, “I just think it was a continuation of his campaign.” Asked if that was as it should be, McCain shrugged, saying, “It’s his choice; he’s the president-elect.’
And let’s not forget that Donald Trump is, in fact the president, despite John McCain and Jeff Flake, Arizona’s embarrassing Republicrat senate duo, both stating unequivocally they would not vote for him. That left Hillary as their choice.
President Trump included these words in his speech to the nation:
“This is your day. This is your celebration. And this, the United States of America, is your country.”
