U.S. President Donald Trump is due to meet with House of Representatives Speaker Paul Ryan and sign a number of executive orders Monday as his administration begins its first full week of work.
The White House did not elaborate on what issues would be the subject of the executive orders.
During his campaign, Trump pledged to roll back orders signed by former president Barack Obama, and after being elected he laid out a plan for the early days of his administration that included giving notice the U.S. plans to withdraw from the 12-nation Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal and renegotiating the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) with Mexico and Canada.
“I think you will see those happen very shortly,” White House spokesman Sean Spicer said last week.
Trump’s plan also included executive orders involving immigration and national security.He has already signed an order stating his intention to try to promptly repeal Obama’s signature health care program.
