Trumps First Full Day and World Reaction

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump is set to participate in a traditional prayer service today at the Washington National Cathedral, an Episcopal parish with a dual role as a civic gathering place.

The cathedral has for years hosted a prayer service for the new president. But keeping the tradition has sparked debate this year among Episcopalians opposed to Trump's policies.

He and his wife attended three balls yesterday, including one honoring the armed forces, where they danced and he gave remarks. He used the balls to recount his victory and to let supporters know that "now the fun begins." The nation's 45th president then headed back to the White House.

During his third and final inaugural ball visit, the newly sworn-in president danced with U.S. Navy Petty Officer 2nd Class Catherine Cartmell of Newport, Rhode Island.

Mrs. Trump danced with U.S. Army Staff Sgt. Jose A. Medina of Ponce, Puerto Rico.

Vice President Mike Pence and his wife, Karen, also got to dance with members of the military.

The Trumps and Pences also participated in the military's traditional cake cutting to honor the sacrifice and service of its members. The cake is cut with a saber.

Asked about his first day as president, Trump says, "It was busy but good — a beautiful day."

Trump tells agencies to ease health care burden

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump has signed his first executive order as president, ordering federal agencies to ease the burden of President Barack Obama's sweeping health care law.

Presidential spokesman Sean Spicer refused to offer details on the order.

Trump was joined in the Oval Office by Vice President Mike Pence, White House chief of staff Reince Priebus and other top advisers as he signed the executive order on the Affordable Care Act that he opposed throughout his campaign.

The White House says Priebus was also sending a memorandum to agencies and departments instituting an immediate freeze on regulations. No additional details were immediately available.

The memo says federal agencies shouldn't submit any completed regulations to be published in the Federal Register until President Donald Trump's administration can review them. The memo also freezes any regulations that were in the pipeline. Regulations that have already been published but haven't kicked in are to be postponed for 60 days to allow for a review.

The memo is similar to one that Obama's chief of staff issued the same day Obama was inaugurated in 2009.
