Tracking Trump - What the President was doing this weekend: 

Bottom Line: The Trump administration had 22 executive orders (21 still intact) and a Supreme Court Nominee to show for his Presidency through Thursday. Here's what happened since:         

Friday was an active day for the President starting with... 

  • The President's CPAC speech - which was well received by the enthusiastic gathering of conservatives on Friday featuring more "us vs them" media material 

  • Next up was the President's first executive order since February 9th as this EO was signed: 

ENFORCING THE REGULATORY REFORM AGENDA 

This order mandates that the head of every agency produce a report on all regulations that are redundant, unnecessary, especially difficult to adhere to and enforce and that lead to fewer jobs. Within 90 days the elimination of these regulations are to occur. This should mean that meaningful regulatory reforms should be impacting businesses by the end of May. 

  • The President announced that he'll skip the White House Correspondents dinner this year - he'd previously attended it in 2011 and 2015 (he was ripped by President Obama in 2011 amid the "birther" controversy at the time which Donald Trump fanned the flames of) 

  • The Democrats picked a former member of the Obama administration, Tom Perez, as the new head of the DNC. The President tweeted "I could not be happier for him or the Republican party" 

  • The President wrapped up the weekend with 46 Governors attending the President's Governors ball 

  • Also the President's nominee for Secretary of the Navy Philip Bilden withdrew his nomination for consideration after determining that his financial interests might pose a conflict of interest 

Until tomorrow..:
