Fri Jan 20, 2017 | 7:39am ESTFactbox: Trump's early executive actions [will]
could undo Obama policiesTrump's first executive orders will likely undo some of the more than 275 orders signed by Obama during his eight years in the White House.
Here is a look at some of the actions Trump may take.IMMIGRATION
Trump's advisors have recommended he take several steps to limit immigration into the United States within his first days in office, according to several people close to the presidential transition team.Trump will likely seek to undo an Obama executive order known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA)
that allowed people brought into the United States illegally as children to stay in the country on a two-year authorization to work and attend college. Trump would likely let the authorizations given to more than 700,000 people under DACA expire rather than immediately retract them or target such individuals for deportation, the sources said.GUANTANAMO BAY
One of Obama's first moves as president in 2009 after winning his first four-year term was signing three executive orders to begin closing the detention facility on the U.S. Navy base in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, and curtail "enhanced interrogation techniques," including waterboarding.Trump said shortly after his election that "we are keeping open" the detention facility and "gonna load it up with some bad dudes," making rescinding Obama's actions on the closure of the facility a likelihood.
The detention facility began housing detainees identified as foreign terrorism suspects in 2002 under Republican President George W. Bush in the aftermath of the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks on the United States by al Qaeda Islamic militants.FEDERAL WORKFORCEObama has issued several orders related to federal contractors that Trump is likely to re-examine or rescind.
One increased the federal minimum wage for employees of federal contractors to $10.10 per hour starting in 2015. Another required all federal contractors to provide their workers with paid sick leave.
An executive order Obama signed that requires federal contractors to disclose labor law violations and guides agencies on how to consider such violations is unpopular with business interests and could be undone by Trump. An Obama order that encourages federal agencies to use union-only project-labor agreements to establish the employment terms for federal projects exceeding $25 million is also likely up for reversal.ENERGY AND CLIMATEObama issued dozens of executive actions on climate policy and clean energy that Trump may seek to und
o. Obama finalized his Clean Power Plan in 2015 to slash carbon emissions from power plants. The plan is currently held up in federal courts but could be undone or hobbled if Trump takes executive action. Trump could also reverse an Obama order that requires federal government agencies to slash emissions 40 percent from 2008 levels by 2025. http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2017/01/22/donald-trump-executive-orders-monday-jerusalem-president/96920966/Trump prepares for busy Monday, pledges NAFTA changes, other executive orders
David Jackson and Gregory Korte , USA TODAY Published 3:33 p.m. ET Jan. 22, 2017WASHINGTON — President Trump, having declared post-inaugural Monday the true opening day of his new administration, spent Sunday pondering a string of executive orders on topics ranging from immigration to Israel to the economy, including what he called a re-working of the North American Free Trade Agreement.
Supervising the swearing-in of 30 new White House staff members, Trump said he will soon meet with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Mexico President Enrique Pena Nieto to discuss changes to NAFTA, the trade deal he claims has shipped U.S. jobs to those other countries.
"We will start some negotiations having to do with NAFTA. Anyone ever hear of NAFTA?
I ran a campaign somewhat based on NAFTA," he said. "Mexico has been terrific, actually, and the president has been really quite amazing."
Two days after his inauguration, Trump also spoke with Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu from the Situation Room, and prepared to meet with law enforcement and first responders who worked during the inaugural weekend.Funny NPR is pissed:http://www.npr.org/sections/thetwo-way/2017/01/21/510952189/president-trumps-first-hours-in-officePresident Trump's First Hours In OfficeJanuary 21, 2017

Making good on his promise to get started on "Day 1," President Trump and his administration got right to work on Friday, taking steps to dismantle the Affordable Care Act and announcing the reversal of their predecessors' plans to reduce mortgage insurance premiums on federally insured home loans.
The new president signed an executive order to "minimize the economic burden" of key provisions of the Affordable Care Act pending its repeal, allowing government agencies not to enforce regulations that impose a financial burden on a state, company or individual.
