Trump retains 50 top Obama appointees

The plan includes eliminating the Climate Action Plan and the Waters of the USA rule, both Obama-era initiatives which the new administration touts as increasing wages by the billions.

"For many decades, we've enriched foreign industry at the expense of American industry; Subsidized the armies of other countries while allowing for the very sad depletion of our military", he said.

Because of Trump and his policies.

Deputy Defence Secretary Robert Work and America's third-ranking diplomat, Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs Thomas Shannon, will serve as acting chiefs of their agencies until successors for the top jobs are confirmed by the Senate, Trump's spokesman said.

Trump's first tweet from the POTUS account was to share a link to his Facebook page, where footage of his inauguration had been uploaded. Trump and Pence proceed from the Capitol up Pennsylvania Avenue to the White House, trailed by an expected 8,000 parade participants.

Now, the International Monetary Fund has revised its forecast for the USA economy during the next two years. At least one fire was set in the street. A former page dedicated exclusively to climate change was deleted and now an unsettling "American First Energy Plan", which promises to lift restrictions on industries hellbent on destroying the environment, takes its place. Surrounded by men and women who have long filled the government's corridors of power, the new president said that for too long, "a small group in our nation's capital has reaped the rewards of government while the people have borne the cost".

Addressing senior staff members on Sunday, Trump said that he "just went to the Oval Office and found this handsome letter from President Obama".

And then he won November's national election against Democrat Hillary Clinton, who was looking to become the country's first female president.

Instead, Trump has spent a life building skyscrapers in NY and elsewhere. He wrote a best-selling book about his real-estate deals and hosted a reality-television game show, The Apprentice, that judged contestants' business skills.

"Get used to a lot of photos", Obama told the Trumps.
