Donald Trump has vowed to drain the swamp in Washington, D.C. He’s called for the removal of the power of lobbyists and special interests.
But in the last week, he’s also announced a series of new restrictions on travel.
Here’s what you need to know.
US travel ban: What you need know 1:42 Trump’s travel ban in the headlines ‘Drain the Swamp’ in D.S.A.: What you should know 1.
Who is Donald Trump?
Trump is the 45th president of the United States.
He was sworn in as the 45 US president in January 2017.
He is the only Republican to have been elected president in the past 50 years.
The 45th President is the most powerful person in the world and has been described as ‘America’s president’.
He was elected with 66% of the vote.
His party has a majority in the Senate and in the House of Representatives.
His first day as president he issued a travel ban, which banned entry to the United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Japan, the United Arab Emirates, North Korea and Syria.
The ban has since been lifted, but there are still many other restrictions on entry to various countries, and the US government has said the ban is not intended to target Muslims or Muslims-only.
Trump has also promised to repeal and replace Obamacare.
‘Dirt on the Dump’: What the US travel bans really mean and what to do about them article President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence signed a new executive order on Saturday that includes an attempt to cut federal spending by an estimated $1.5 trillion over 10 years.
This was the first big executive order to target federal spending in more than a decade.
The order includes a call for cuts to the State Department, the Department of Justice, and to the National Institutes of Health.
The administration has proposed slashing $1 billion in funding for the Office of Management and Budget, $300 million from the US Postal Service, and $200 million from NASA.
There’s also a proposal to eliminate the EPA.
What are the main things Trump is trying to do?
The order sets out a broad list of spending cuts for the Department and agencies.
These include: Cutting the State department budget by more than $1 trillion in the next decade.
Cutting $600 million from defense spending.
Cutting the National Institute of Standards and Technology budget by $100 million.
Cutting NASA’s budget by an additional $1 million.
A cut to the US National Park Service budget by almost $700 million.
Trump is also proposing a reduction in the EPA budget by about $1 to $1,000 million, and a $1-per-ounce reduction in funding to the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.
The plan also calls for a reduction of the US military budget by nearly $1-$2 billion, and some cuts to other agencies such as the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
It also includes a proposal that would eliminate the US Trade Representative, an agency that enforces international trade rules and has long been a target of President Donald J. Trump.
The Trump administration is also pushing to reduce funding for international aid programs by nearly 30%.
It would eliminate $1 for every $1 it spends on international aid.
What about the travel ban?
Trump has promised to reduce the number of foreign visitors from seven to five, which is a reduction from the current seven.
But this is only one step.
The executive order includes an order that would also increase the number and duration of visas for people from seven countries: Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen.
These are countries that have ties to terrorist groups such as al-Qaida and ISIS.
What do the US, UK and Canada have to say about the executive order?
The US has said that the order is a continuation of the president’s policies of discrimination against people of Muslim faith.
“We strongly condemn the actions taken by President Trump to discriminate against people based on their religion, and we look forward to the president clarifying his intentions,” UK Prime Minister Theresa May said in a statement.
UK Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said the US order “is an affront to freedom of religion and freedom of speech.”
“I would ask the US to consider the impact it has on the global economy and the thousands of British citizens who travel to the U.S.,” Johnson said in an interview on the BBC’s Andrew Marr Show.
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said that, while the US ban is “a regrettable measure that we do not accept,” Canada stands by the US and the United Nations Charter.
“As the first nation in the region to sign the US’ travel ban against the countries of seven, we will do all that we can to support our allies and our partners in the fight against terrorism,” Trudeau said in response to the executive action.
