I was looking at photos of Trump signing his executive orders and I thought he looked arrogant and full of self importance.

But it occurred to me that I'd not seen photos of predecessors doing it. So I googled Obama and Bush.

There really was a difference. Trump was full on. His expression was that eyes nearly closed look of nonchalance regarding what he was doing. He was full on, one hand holding the document, the other signing. All quite formal with the people around all standing a distance back and mostly rigid as if they daren't cough or smile even.
(noticeable, too, that after the criticism of a lack of women in the first ones, there were some in the next ones )

Obama looked so much more relaxed, sometimes a smile...you could imagine a joke, he was often sideways, the other people more at ease...it all looked a lot less formal like he was just making a note of something.
Bush looked the same.

I dunno, maybe he's just less at ease being new in the job or maybe I'm seeing something not there.

Mexican President has cancelled the meeting he was to have with Trump next week.

Trumps tweet:

“If Mexico is unwilling to pay for the badly needed wall, then it would be better to cancel the upcoming meeting,” Trump tweeted. “The U.S. has a 60 billion dollar trade deficit with Mexico. It has been a one-sided deal from the beginning of NAFTA with massive numbers… of jobs and companies lost.”

Followed by Mexican Presidents tweet:

“This morning we have informed the White House that I will not attend the meeting scheduled for next Tuesday with the @POTUS,” the Mexican president said. “Mexico reiterates its willingness to work with the United States to achieve agreements in favour of both Nations.”

Followed by this from Trump later in thw day but not on twitter.

“The president of Mexico and myself have agreed to cancel our planned meeting scheduled for next week,” Trump said. “Unless Mexico is going to treat the United States fairly, with respect, such a meeting would be fruitless and I want to go a different route. We have no choice.”

On the TV news footage, Trump looked quite relaxed and cheerful, probably pleased to be undoing Obama's hard work. I don't think you can read to much into such scenes though.

I agree. Mannerisms are adopted throughout life and what I suspect that what you see when he signs these things is probably the same self satisfied image that he adopted whenever he was Trump CEO making good deals. At the moment though, he's playing with the US as though he's once more CEO and not president and he knows that for the moment he's boss and everyone else had better recognise it.... or, like some State Department officials they'll find themselves without a job.

90- day ban on entry for anyone from Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen.

Exceptions for diplomatic visas.

60 days for other countries to provide necessary info Trump wants, if not provided citizens from those countries will be barred from travel to the US.

Various departments ordered to review what info the US Gov't needs to vet visitors and provide a list of countries that don't provide said info.

State Dept ordered to stop issuing visas to Syrian nationals and halt the processing of Syrian refugees. Remains in effect until Trump has determined enough security changes have been made.

4 month suspension of broader refugee program.

Cuts number of total refugees by half to 50,000 for this budget year, was originally set at 110,000 by Obama.

Exceptions made to refugees claiming persecution due to their religion if their religion is a minority religion, such as Christians in a Muslim country.

Prioritizing Christians could be unconstitutional.

It's so strange seeing an elected political leader actually doing ! what he said he would do when he was running for office and scrapping for votes. Scary even.
