President Donald Trump has already taken measures to fulfill some of his promises for his first 100 days in office on Monday. The plan, called Trump’s “Contract With the American Voter,” has been clustered around the goals of cleaning up what the president has called corruption in the federal government, protecting jobs for Americans and prioritizing security.

It also included specific initiatives, such as repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act, ending illegal immigration, and redirecting public dollars to promote school choice, among other promises.

Here’s a list of the promises that Trump prioritized on his first full day as president.

  • Unwinding Obamacare: One of Trump’s first actions on Friday was signing an executive order aimed at the Affordable Care Act (ACA). The order gave federal agencies the power to loosen regulations put into place by the ACA, although the specifics are still unclear. One of Trump’s biggest campaign promises was to get rid of the ACA, which was instated in by President Barack Obama in 2010.
  • Severing trade ties: Trump fulfilled another giant campaign promise by signing an executive order Monday to abandon U.S. ties with the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), a trade deal between 12 countries meant to strengthen economic ties between North American and Asian nations. Trump criticized the TPP during the campaign, arguing that Americans would lose their jobs because of it. Although Congress hadn’t yet approved of the deal, Trump’s executive order takes the U.S. off the TPP negotiating table. This was listed as the second action under “protect American workers” in Trump’s contract with voters.
  • Federal Hiring Freeze: Another executive order signed by Trump Monday put a freeze on hiring federal employees except for members of the military. This was listed as Trump’s second measure to “clean up corruption and special interest collusion in Washington, D.C.” in his first 100-day plan.
  • Targeting abortion. The new president also signed an executive order Monday to limit abortion funding overseas by reinstating the Mexico City Abortion Rule -- essentially, the rule states that if the U.S. government gives funds to a foreign non-governmental organization, that organization cannot provide abortions or promote abortion services. It’s not a huge surprise that Trump reinstated the rule, as it’s gone back and forth since Ronald Reagan signed it into law in 1985. Trump did not explicitly outline abortion in his 100 day plan, but, as Jon O’Brien, president of Catholics for Choice, told The Independent, abortion issues are “an easy bone to throw” to the right-wing.

Aside from the above executive actions, Trump has made no secret about his desire to make big cuts to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The Trump transition team’s EPA “agency action plan” included several recommendations to “improve the use of science by the EPA, according to the news organization Axios, which published information about it Monday. The document advised that the agency should not fund scientific research. That was likely a blow to climate change advocates, who were already concerned by Scott Pruitt, a climate change skeptic and Trump’s pick for head of the EPA. These potential changes could fulfill another one of Trump’s goals in his 100-day contract: to curb U.S. participation in global climate change initiatives.
