Ordered executive branch agencies to begin preparing for the repeal of the Affordable Care Act, so far a mostly symbolic action that could be used to undermine the law's enforcement.  Formally submitted his Cabinet nominations to the U.S. Senate, which has now confirmed Defense Secretary James Mattis and Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly, and signed a waiver for Mattis.   Moved forward on the Dakota Access and Keystone XL oil pipelines.  Ended a policy known as "catch and release," under which some immigrants are released from detention while they await a hearing with an immigration judge.  Ended federal funding to sanctuary cities and states, which opt out of reporting undocumented immigrants.  Kept FBI Director James Comey, who both he and Hillary Clinton criticized over his handling of her private email server, on the job. Named net neutrality critic Ajit Pai to lead the Federal Communications Commission. .
