A Fair Summary

Chris Cillizza of The Washington Post summarizes Trump's first week in office:
The 45th president campaigned as a radical break from both politics and policy as usual in Washington, promising to restore strength to the White House and the country while ignoring all tradition and political correctness.

He spent the first week of his presidency doing just that — beginning with an executive order triggering the United States’s withdrawal from the Trans-Pacific Partnership, continuing through a midweek executive order to begin the process of building a wall along our southern border and culminating Friday with Trump’s executive order temporarily halting refugees from entering the country and instituting a full entrance ban on visitors from seven predominantly Muslim countries.
Pundits who warned Trump's followers he'd never deliver on his campaign promises have been proven wrong again. Snide question: when have they been correct is recent months? Accurate answer: never.
