Trump’s soon to be press secretary, Sean Spicer, released a statement in which he said that Trump intended to “repeal a lot” of Obama’s executive orders on his very first day in the Oval Office.
Spicer also said during an interview with ABC News that Trump will give 100% from day one in order to drain the so-called swamp and bring a new order in Washington DC.
“It’s going to be not one big thing; it’s going to be many big things,” commented Spicer. “On day one, he’s going to sign a series of executive orders to do two things. One is repeal a lot of the regulations and actions that have been taken by this administration over the last eight years that have hampered both economic growth and job creation.
“And then secondly, do the same on a forward-thinking thing. He’s going to start implementing things. He’s going to bring a new brand to Washington. He’s going to institute a lobbying ban, five years. It’s very forward thinking,” he went on.
“What we’ve had in the past is people who have looked in the rearview mirror. This time, we’re thinking forward. If you want to serve in a Trump administration, you’re going to serve this country, not yourself.”
Spicer also defended Trump’s use of Twitter. “You know, with all due respect, I think it freaks the mainstream media out that he has this following of over 45-plus million people that follow him on social media, that he can have a direct conversation,” Spicer said. “He doesn’t have to have it funneled through the media.”
