Today marks one month since President Donald Trump took office and it has been a busy month.
Since Jan. 20, Trump has named a Supreme Court nominee, fired his national security adviser, fought the courts over his executive order regarding immigration from seven majority-Muslim countries and signed more than 20 other executive orders on everything from reigning in regulations to implementing a federal hiring freeze.
Here’s a look back at some of the highlights of the fist month and how local people have reacted:
