President Trump intends to reverse this trend because he knows that our military domination should not be called into question, "the document says.

"Our strategy starts with the withdrawal from the Trans-Pacific Partnership. President Trump intends to renegotiate NAFTA. If our partners abandon new negotiations that give American workers a fair deal, then the president will notify the United States of America's intention to withdraw from NAFTA," the White House said.

In addition, the administration promises to use "all tools" against countries that it considers violating trade agreements.

According to the program, the new administration intends to expel illegal migrants with a criminal past from the country: "Supporting the law enforcement system also means deporting illegal aliens with a history of violent crimes that remain within our borders."

In order to fight illegal immigrants "and to establish a barrier on the path of banditry, violence and drugs", the intention to build a wall on the country's border with Mexico is confirmed. At the same time, it is emphasized that Trump "is aimed at strengthening US legislation regarding borders and ending (the practice of existence) of cities of refuge (for illegal immigrants)."

Also, according to the program, the Trump administration intends to achieve energy independence from OPEC "and any countries hostile to US interests."

(Also) the Trump administration. will welcome the offshore gas and shale oil revolution to bring jobs and prosperity back to millions of Americans, ”the document says.

On Monday, January 23rd, President Trump signed a federal recruitment freeze and directive that prohibits U.S. nongovernmental organizations from receiving federal funding for overseas abortions.

About the federal recruitment freeze

By signing this decree, Trump will thereby reduce the number of officials. Trump has repeatedly announced these plans during the presidential campaign.

"This was the second of six measures" to cleanse corruption and collusion in Washington DC, and also part of Trump's "First 100 Days Plan to Make America Great Again," The Washington Post writes.

The hiring freeze excludes the military, public safety and health personnel.

The news of the new order was acutely received in the largest federal union of workers.

“President Trump’s actions will disrupt government programs and services that benefit everyone and will actually increase taxpayer spending, forcing agencies to hire more expensive contractors to do jobs that government officials are paid much less for,” said President David Cox Sr., President American Federation of Civil Servants. "This hiring freeze will mean longer lines at social security offices, fewer workplace safety checks, less pollution control, and a higher risk to our nation's food supply and clean water systems."

Federal Financing Abortion Abortion Directive

By signing this directive, the president prohibits the provision of US funding to nongovernmental organizations that offer or provide advice on a wide range of family planning and reproductive health, if they include abortion, even if US dollars are not specifically used for abortion-related services. The Huffington Post.

The United States spends about $ 600 million a year on international assistance for family planning and reproductive health programs. By signing this directive, Trump denies access to contraceptive services and supplies for 27 million women.

None of those dollars are spent on abortion. This is because the Helms Amendment prevented U.S. taxpayers from spending on overseas abortions back in 1973.

Trump's order has serious consequences and can be fatal for women and girls in developing countries and conflict zones, who often resort to dangerous methods of termination of pregnancy. This is due to the fact that they do not have access to safe abortion.

The World Health Organization estimates that more than 21 million women die each year from unsafe abortion in developing countries, accounting for about 13% of all maternal deaths.

Trump also signed a decree to withdraw from the Trans-Pacific Partnership.

The first working week after the inauguration of the 45th US President Donald Trump is over. The ceremony took place on January 20. So what exactly did Donald Trump make during his first week in office?

Mysterious disappearance

The day after the inauguration, a page on the rights of the LGBT community was removed from the White House website. The section on climate change has also disappeared. The latter was replaced by a section on the president's plans to improve the environmental situation in the country. The liquidation of the page on minority rights, which published various initiatives and news about court decisions protecting the rights of homosexuals, raised a wave of protests not only in America but around the world. The next day, dissenters took to the streets in various cities of the United States, according to police estimates, hundreds of thousands of people. They all believe that Trump oppresses various minority groups: not only homosexuals, but also African Americans, Hispanics and even women.

"Against" Islam

One of the first decrees of President Trump was the decree "On the protection of the country from the entry of foreign terrorists." According to it, citizens of seven countries are banned from entering the United States for 90 days: Iraq, Iran, Yemen, Libya, Syria, Somalia and Sudan. The authorities do not exclude that the list may be expanded in the near future. Reception of refugees has been suspended for 120 days, and the provision of asylum to immigrants from Syria has been suspended indefinitely. The decree also applies to holders of Green Card immigrant visas.

In connection with the new decree, in the United States, according to the recent tradition, mass protests began. Disagreement with Trump's policy was voiced by world stars - Madonna, Mark Zuckerberg, Rihanna, Ashton Kucher, Shia LaBeouf and others. The media was quick to accuse Trump of "anti-Islam" policies. However, the president himself said that these conclusions are incorrect, and restrictions on entry into the country are not a matter of religion, but the country's security in the face of a terrorist threat.

"There are more than 40 different countries around the world, where the majority of Muslims are not affected by this decree," he said.

In his Twitter, Trump wrote that the US needs strong borders and a thorough search "right now." He also recalled the "terrible disorder" taking place in Europe.

However, soon after the decree was signed, it became known that there is still a "loophole" for some migrants. Those who have already entered the country on a valid visa will be able to stay in the United States. This decision was made by the Federal District Court for the Eastern District of New York.

Meanwhile, the section "myths and facts" about refugees has disappeared from the website of the US Department of State. It appeared during the reign of Barack Obama.

Construction of the "Mexican Wall"

Trump signed a decree on the protection of the state border, which he repeatedly spoke about during his election campaign. According to the decree, it is planned to build a wall with a length of 3.2 thousand kilometers between the United States and Mexico.

"A state without borders is not a state. Starting today, the United States of America is regaining control over its borders, regaining its borders," he commented on his decision.

Trump also ordered the expulsion of all migrants with a criminal record from the United States: "As I have said many times, we will expel everyone - criminals, drug dealers, gang members and cartel leaders."

Abortion and the "gag rule"

Donald Trump also took advantage of the so-called "gag rule" by signing a directive prohibiting American non-profit organizations from discussing abortion in the countries where they operate. The decision was expected, as during the election campaign, Trump widely criticized abortion. Moreover, Vice President Michael Pence announced on January 27 that the new administration and Congress are working to end federal funding for abortion.

"From the first day of his work in the White House, President Trump has kept his promises to the American people. Therefore, he has renewed a policy aimed at prohibiting the provision of funding to international organizations that help carry out abortions abroad," RIA Novosti quoted him as saying.

If the law is passed, the released funds will be directed to medical services for women.

During the first week of Donald Trump's tenure as President of the United States, the country also managed to leave the Trans-Pacific Partnership, negotiations on the creation of which lasted almost seven years. In addition, the head of the White House managed to prohibit officials from lobbying the interests of foreign states and signed a decree on radical transformations in the American army. The media also reported that the new administration is going to cut funding for international organizations and the country's role in them. In particular, we are talking about the UN.

Donald Trump refused to pardon himself, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange and former NSA employee Edward Snowden. Before leaving the presidency of the United States, he signed a decree pardoning 73 people and reducing sentences for 70 more. The list was published by the White House. The latest orders of the outgoing president and his plans for the future are written in the world media. The details can be found in the review of the foreign press on Kommersant FM.

In the last hours of his presidency, Donald Trump signed a pardon decree. There are a total of 143 surnames in it, writes The Washington Post ... Including former presidential adviser Stephen Bannon, who is accused of embezzling funds raised to build a wall on the border with Mexico. According to the investigation, of the $ 25 million, several hundred thousand were spent on the personal needs of Bannon and his friends. Also on the list is Paul Erickson, linked to the case of Russian woman Maria Butina. He was sentenced to seven years in prison on charges of fraud and money laundering.

None of the Trump family is on this list, although earlier The New York Times wrote that the president will not miss the opportunity to pardon himself, his family members and personal lawyer Rudolph Giuliani. But in the end, representatives of the White House dissuaded him. Presidential pardons in the United States are not subject to appeal. And many leaders, as they left the White House, used this power to remove prosecutions from convicts, including their political supporters.

Кого помиловал Дональд Трамп

Donald Trump himself wants to leave the White House four hours before the start of Biden's inauguration. CNN writes that this departure will not be imperceptible. Sources of the publication said that they plan to see the president off with a military band, a red carpet to the plane and a salute of 21 volleys. This is considered the most honorable ceremony dedicated to national heroes.

The outgoing president is expected to travel to Florida. The nuclear suitcase will fly with him. Daily mail emphasizes that this bag must be with the head of state until the last minute, while his powers are in force, and then it is transferred to the new president. But since Trump refused to attend the inauguration of his successor, the special officer will have to fly with Trump to Florida, and then return the suitcase to Washington.

After his resignation, Donald Trump intends to develop his political career. He is going to create a new party. The president discussed these plans with several close people, reports The wall street journal ... The newspaper writes that in recent days, the US President had disagreements with party members, in particular, with the leader of the Republicans in the Senate, Mitch McConnell. He accused Trump of instigating riots in Washington on January 6. The new party will probably not have critical politicians. It is not yet clear how determined Trump is, but the creation of the new structure will require considerable costs and resources, the newspaper emphasizes. Nevertheless, Donald Trump has already come up with a name for his party - "Party of Patriots".

It's too early to write off Trump. He still has considerable political weight and influence. Interview Rasmussen shows that on the last full-time day of the president he is approved by 51% of potential voters. Those who disapprove - about 48%.

US President Donald Trump after his inauguration at the table, surrounded by his family and the top leadership of the United States, he signed the first decrees as head of state.

Among the first signed presidential decrees is the appointment General James Mattis nicknamed "Mad Dog" for the post of defense minister. Mattis will become the 26th US Secretary of Defense. The general served in the military for 44 years and is considered one of the most experienced military commanders in the United States.

In addition, Trump appointed Jonah Kelly for the post of Secretary of Homeland Security. Kelly served in the US military for 40 years, leading the Southern Command. In 2012, he became the head of the US Southern Command with the main task of disrupting drug trafficking in South and Central America, as well as providing assistance in training military personnel in Latin American and Caribbean countries. Kelly also actively opposed the closure of Guantanamo Bay.

The third decree of the new president was to repeal the law Obama on health care reform. According to the document, heads of institutions must use their powers to "cancel, postpone, grant benefits or delay implementation" of a provision of the health care law known as Obamacare. Thanks to the Obamacare program, most insurance holders receive subsidies from the state. To allow the treasury to afford it, Obamacare obliges all Americans to get health insurance - otherwise they pay a fine, now averaging $ 995 a year.

Trump also sent a proposal to establish a National Patriot Day. On what date Trump has appointed a new holiday and how it will differ from other patriotic holidays in the United States, it has not yet been reported.

On January 25, Trump signed decrees regarding refugees and migrants from Muslim countries. In particular, we are talking about residents of Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen. Even during the election campaign, Trump criticized the migration policies of Western countries. In particular, he called the decision "a catastrophic mistake" Who has Donald Trump pardoned пускать в страну беженцев.

Трамп также подписал указ о строительстве стены на границе Соединенных Штатов с Мексикой. По словам президента, стена предотвратит проникновение в США нелегальных иммигрантов из всей Южной Америки.
