After a victory in the 2016 election, Donald Trump is president after being sworn in at our nation’s capital as the 45th president last Friday.

In his inaugural address Trump mentioned many of his campaign promises, such as making deals that benefit America over foreign nations. “From this day forward, a new vision will govern our land. From this day forward, it’s going to be only America first, America first.” Other key promises such as increasing border security, expanding our military, and eradicating radical Islam were also mentioned.”Together, we will make America strong. We will make America wealthy. We will make America proud again. We will make America safe again. And yes, together, we will make America great again.”

On Monday the 23rd Trump met with Union leaders and giant corporations. He stated that he wants to lower regulations on companies both big and small. “I think we can cut regulation by 75 percent, maybe more,” Mr Trump said.

Trump has also used the presidency executive actions quite a bit. He removed the U.S from the Trans-pacific Partnership(T.P.P). He also signed an order to stop the U.S from supporting abortion in foreign countries, an order that slows government hiring besides the military, and a bill that helps the Keystone pipeline get constructed. Lastly Trump put into place a pause on immigration from several Middle-Eastern countries that have known ISIS activists, and a bill that moves forward plans on the wall on the southern border of the United States of America.

Here are a what some GHS students have said about Mr.Trump. “I feel that he is pretty tough on the issues,” said Sophomore Evan Oliver, “but he is what America needs right now.”

“He’s starting off strong and doing things about issues I feel the media never gives enough attention to, such as illegal immigration.” Sophomore Cullen Michner said.

“The world won’t end but things will get more crazy,” Senior Madi Henson said.

Senior Rachel Bondesen said, “It’s a sad step backwards, but we’ll overcome it.”

Trump’s in office until January of 2021.
