Health care will be a central focus of Donald Trump’s second term in office.
The president, whose first inauguration drew massive protests and led to some of the biggest political upheaval since the civil rights movement, is set to embark on his first full day in office with a series of executive orders aimed at easing the burden on Americans with chronic illness.
Trump’s agenda is also expected to include a number of initiatives aimed at boosting the economy, and the administration is expected to unveil an outline of his tax plan.
Trump is expected at some point to unveil his new health care legislation, which could have a significant impact on the health care market.
The Republican president is expected on Thursday to announce that he will nominate Dr. Christopher Monckton, a top health care policy adviser to President George W. Bush, to head the Office of Management and Budget, according to Axios.
Monckton’s nomination would be one of two moves that Trump is expected for his Cabinet as the administration prepares to take control of the health insurance market in 2018.
On Wednesday, the White House announced that Vice President Mike Pence, who is running for reelection, had been selected as the new secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services, after the Senate confirmed Mike Pompeo, a former Republican senator from Kansas, as the agency’s new director.
Pompeo, who will become director of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, was one of the original architects of the Affordable Care Act, which was passed in 2010.
Trump has repeatedly vowed to repeal the landmark law, which he says is destroying American businesses and has led to massive job losses.
In addition to Monckston, Pence and Pompeo are expected to face Democratic opposition in their confirmation hearings, including on Tuesday when the Senate Judiciary Committee will hold its hearing on Monckson.
During his first two months in office, Trump has made a number.
The president signed an executive order to eliminate a controversial rule requiring that health insurance plans cover certain drugs and devices that are not covered by Medicare.
He also signed an order allowing states to impose a 10 percent surcharge on health insurance for anyone with pre-existing conditions and issued an executive memorandum on the importance of addressing opioid abuse.
At the end of February, Trump signed an expanded version of the “Mexico City Policy,” which allows the U.S. to impose economic sanctions on countries that don’t abide by the terms of a 2015 nuclear deal with Iran.
There are a lot of people who are trying to make it very difficult for me to get to a deal that makes a lot more sense than the one we have with Iran,” Trump said during a press conference on Wednesday.
“It’s making the business community pay more taxes, it’s making it harder for American workers to get health care. “
The real problem with this new administration is it is doing everything possible to hurt the economy,” said Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), the ranking member on the Senate Banking Committee, on Wednesday, according the Washington Post.
“It’s making the business community pay more taxes, it’s making it harder for American workers to get health care.
So there is a lot that is going on here.”
The Trump administration is also set to unveil the details of its tax plan during the first full week of the administration, with officials expected to outline a set of policies aimed at lowering taxes for Americans, particularly those making $250,000 or more per year.
The administration has also announced that it is rolling out the first of several executive orders focused on improving the U
