If you have been following the news at all over the last several weeks since Trump took office, you’re well aware of Trump’s Executive Order on immigration. The first order received quite a bit of resilience and was subsequently blocked by the Ninth Circuit. In the coming days, we will see Trump’s second proposed order, which is sure to garner as much, if not more, attention as the first one. I’ll be sure to post about it once it comes out.
However, for now, I’d like to review Trump’s initial order, which caused a great deal of confusion, even among professionals in that area of expertise. My cousin, who owns a tow truck company in Connecticut, has followed the subject closely and he sent me the video below. For anyone not familiar with the particulars of the Order, I recommend viewing this video.
So far, Trump has had a hell of time getting his cabinet appointees confirmed by the Senate. It’s probably fair to say that there’s not a single president in U.S. history that has faced so much opposition to his cabinet nominations. Today, Vice-President Pence had to fill his role as president of the Senate and break a tie in order to get Betsy DeVos confirmed as Secretary of Education. DeVos has faced a great deal of opposition, particularly from those in the education field.
If y0u don’t know much about DeVos, here’s a YouTube video of her being grilled by Bernie Sanders.
So far, Trump has only been in the oval office for a few days. However, I am very excited about some of the people that he is surrounding himself with. One of his more notable appointments was General James Mattis as Secretary of Defense. Gen. Mattis has served a very distinguished career and I think he’s going to do an excellent job. I hope Trump will heed his advice more that Obama did.
If you aren’t too familiar with Gen. Mattis, here’s an interesting video. You can also watch the video on YouTube.
