Donald Trump’s first month of presidency has definitely been controversial, as anyone could have expected. Early in his presidency, he signed an order to withdraw from the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP). Then, President Trump reauthorized work on the Keystone and Dakota Access Pipelines. The Dakota Access Pipeline was very controversial, and many protesters attempted to stop it, because the land for the pipeline had belonged to Native Americans. On January 25th, the President signed an action to direct federal resources to go toward constructing the border wall (CNN). Then, two days later, President Trump signed the executive order to temporarily halt the entry of people coming from seven primarily Islamic countries. This travel ban was the most controversial action that Trump has done so far. The order, however, was stopped in federal court, and the Trump Administration is working hard to resume it. The Administration is also planning to repeal and replace Obamacare. Trump asserted in a tweet that, economically, in one month, The United States’ debt has gone down $12 Billion, as opposed to the $200 billion dollar increase in President Obama’s presidency. The DOW even had an 11th straight record closing on February 25th. This sums up President Trump’s first month in office, and he has pledged to fulfill many more promises in months to come.
