President Trump prepares for 'busy week' of meetings, executive orders

President Donald Trump has a "busy week planned with a heavy focus on jobs and national security," he tweeted Monday morning. Much of that will entail reaching out to potential allies: Trump meets with business leaders in a "listening session" Monday to discuss manufacturing jobs, followed by a meeting with union leaders and workers in the afternoon, lunch with Vice President Mike Pence, and his first meeting as president with Speaker of the House Paul Ryan.

Trump is also expected to sign executive orders Monday morning on topics possibly ranging "from immigration to Israel to the economy, including what he called a re-working of the North American Free Trade Agreement," USA Today writes.

Trump's team will especially be aiming for a smooth first week after such a bumpy inaugural weekend. "They got off to a very rocky start because they see everyone as adversaries," Newsmax CEO Christopher Ruddy, a Trump friend who talks with him often, told Politico.
