It is only one day to Donald Trump’s inauguration and Washington is getting ready for the big day.
But even as the countdown goes on, Trump has insisted that he will sign “very meaningful documents”.
Trump has insisted that right after the inauguration speech, he will be on his way to sign papers. His remarks have been made just a day after the incoming White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer stated that Mr. Trump has plans to sign numerous executive orders right from his inauguration day.
Spicer said that the President would think of the papers to “deal with tomorrow versus Monday or Tuesday,” reports CNN News.
Spicer added that Mr. Trump is still being briefed on the orders he wants to do and how they should follow sequentially. “I think you’ll see some activity on both tomorrow, over the weekend and then Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday.”
Among the executive orders expected to be signed are ceremonial and logistical. He has also left room for the possibility of policy-oriented actions and announcements immediately after the inauguration.
Other executive orders that need quick fixing according to Trump include Obamacare, immigration, war on ISIS and lobbying ban are high on the list of early executive orders.
A senior GOP Hill aide said lawmakers anticipate that Trump will roll out multiple executive orders related to Obamacare. But the stresses they have not yet been briefed or given any heads-up about what is coming.
But in an interview with UK’s Times of London and Germany’s Bild newspapers, Donald Trump said that his “first day” day will be Monday as opposed to Friday because he doesn’t want to “mix signing and celebration.”
But Trump’s advisers have dispelled that notion and maintained that he will get started with work on Friday.
Trump transition team told CNN that the moment Trump is sworn into office, some of his aides will start moving into the White House. It is said that some aides will even be watching his speech right from the West Wing.
CNN News reported of one adviser who thinks executive orders will be used to retain focus on Trump in the event of anti-Trump protests.
The agency officials are now left in the dark, just like most American citizens on any executive orders. “I don’t know what we’re rolling out on Monday. It makes me a little nervous,” the official, who has been through multiple transitions, said.
