President Donald Trump signed his first executive orders on Friday within minutes of his White House arrival
For his first official act as president, he declared General James Mattis as Secretary of Defense
The second order was less precise - it vowed somewhat vaguely to 'ease the burden of Obamacare'
President Donald Trump wasted no time after his official White House arrival on Friday night, heading straight to the Oval Office where he signed his first executive orders since being sworn in.
President Trump christened the Resolute Desk by signing orders to confirm General James Mattis as Secretary of Defense.
His second move, the official signing of an order to 'ease the burden of Obamacare', was less precise.
Minutes earlier, the president and First Lady Melania Trump made their way inside after watching the Inaugural Parade from the Reviewing Stand on the North Lawn.
...since the ACA is NOT a burden for me, I am bracing for something horrible...

Yes, it's like the war on drugs-war on terror-war on poverty. These are huge money pits that have no real clear end or "victory".
I imagine this executive order is a shot across everyone's bow. This is going to be an odd and exciting ride.
The only way to solve is if everyone is covered.... So how do you solve this?
