Trump's plan also included executive orders involving immigration and national security.He has already signed an order stating his intention to try to promptly repeal Obama's signature health care program.
The most important takeaway from this executive order is that on day one, Trump has began to dismantle Obamacare piece by piece with this order being the first piece in a long fight.
President Donald Trump wasted little time moving on the Affordable Care Act.
Following the attendance figure row White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus said there was "an obsession... to de-legitimise this president".
The order instructs the USA health secretary and other departments and agencies to "exercise all authority and discretion available to them to waive, defer, grant exemptions from, or delay the implementation of any provision or requirement of the Act" that imposes a fiscal burden or other cost on a state, on consumers, on insurers or on a range of healthcare providers.
Which president has issued the most executive orders? Or, as he crudely put it, his "illegal and overreaching executive orders".
What is an executive order and how do presidents use them?
Another issue that was an important part of Trump's campaign past year was immigration, and he is expected to issue an executive order to begin the construction of a wall on the U.S.
Here is the problem with what the former president did, summed up by Thornberry: "We've had this steady stream of lawsuits and disputes with the (former) administration as (Obama) has gone around Congress to do what he thinks needs to be done because he knows we are not going to do it". It is likely that they will suddenly become champions of the concept of separation of powers, which they largely ignored during Obama's term because Obama was taking actions they agreed with but were unable to pass through the Republican-controlled Congress. One executive order to make law is one too many. The last president that issued orders at a lower rate than Obama was Grover Cleveland.
"There is a real question of whether this executive order curtails the free exercise of religion, and whether the president has the authority to do that".
What if the next president doesn't like an executive order, can he or she get rid of it?
On Monday Trump signed a formal withdrawal from the Trans-Pacific Partnership, an order that was unnecessary since the United States had never formally joined the TPP.
During that morning meeting, Mr. Trump promised to cut business taxes and regulations.
The most famous executive order belongs to Abraham Lincoln.
