Trump begins with call to kill climate action plan

WASHINGTON —- As President Trump delivered his inaugural address Friday, his new White House team posted a proposal to eliminate President Obama’s environmental regulations.

“For too long, we’ve been held back by burdensome regulations on our energy industry. President Trump is committed to eliminating harmful and unnecessary policies such as the Climate Action Plan and the Waters of the U.S. rule,” reads the top issue brief on the new president’s White House web site. “

New executive actions are expected later Friday as the nation’s 45th president begins his administration.”

At noon, as Trump took the oath of office, the government switched over the White House web site from Obama’s to Trump’s. (Obama’s is now frozen in time, archived by the National Archives and Records Administration under the Presidential Records Act.)

The new president has already taped another White House duty, the Saturday morning radio address to be broadcast tomorrow morning.

After an inaugural address saying that “the forgotten men and women will be forgotten no longer,” Trump had lunch with members of Congress and led the inaugural parade.
