Yesterday, the very day of President Trump’s inauguration, these praiseworthy actions were carried out:
The White House’s page on climate change was taken down.
The sculptured head of Winston Churchill was put back in the Oval Office. Here he is re-instated among happy allies, friends, admirers:
And today – the first full day of his presidency – President Trump will talk to the CIA.
The Express informs us:
The President plans to visit the CIA’s headquarters in Langley, Virginia. The visit may well be a tense one after he criticized the CIA for concluding Russia was involved in hacking email to interfere in the presidential election.
We doubt it will be tense. Donald Trump doesn’t do tense. He deals.
And he keeps his promises:
President Trump appears to have dropped the controversial Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) between the US and the European Union (EU) … During the election campaign Donald Trump said he would bin the beleaguered deal and it appears just hours into his presidency he has kept his promise.
He will, however, meet the British Prime Minister, Theresa May, perhaps “as early as next week”:
Theresa May is expected to meet Mr Trump as soon as possible following his remarks signalling a close relationship between the UK and the US.
