Trump's First Week In Office

Still want us to give him a chance?

Trump's First Week In Office

It has been only a little more than a week since President Donald Trump has taken office. Yet, he has already signed several executive orders which are extremely controversial and incendiary to many individuals. Here are some of the orders he had signed.

1) Anti-abortion

On Monday, Trump signed an executive order which prohibits the US from giving funding to international nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) that offer social programs of family planning and reproductive health care, even if such programs don't offer abortions. We must keep in mind that one can't stop abortions, he can only stop safe abortions. As a terrible consequence, this executive can potentially cause women worldwide to die pursuing unsafe abortions.

2) Visa ban

On Wednesday, Trump signed an executive order which temporarily prohibits the US embassy from granting visas to citizens of Iraq, Syria, Iran, Sudan, Libya, Somalia or Yemen. While Trump claims that this ban is a "security measure," it undermines the fact that many of the citizens of these countries are simply looking to visit their families in the US or study at US universities. Trump fears refugees and assumes that everyone from those countries which he is targeting is dangerous or looking to live off of the American taxpayers' money.

3) Border Wall

On Wednesday, he also signed an executive order urging Homeland Security to begin building a wall on the US-Mexico border. The border wall will not only damage property and leave many homeless but it can also potentially threaten hundreds of endangered species.
