PENTAGON — President Donald Trump made his first trip to the Pentagon as commander in chief Friday, signing two executive actions during his visit.
During a ceremonial swearing-in ceremony for Secretary of Defense James “Jim” Mattis, Trump described his executive memorandum as a “great rebuilding” of the armed services, to include new planes and ships and other “tools” for the military.
In the second action, Trump signed an executive order, following through on his campaign promise of “extreme vetting” of those who wish to immigrate to the United States. He said the new vetting measures would be designed to “keep radical Islamic terrorists out” of the country.
