Trump Holds First Cabinet Meeting – Voice of America

President Donald Trump held his first Cabinet meeting of his administration on Monday – a meeting he said he hoped would be “historic.”

He told his Cabinet members and reporters that he’s working to repeal former President Barack Obama’s health care law despite it “getting a false rep that maybe it’s OK” when, as he sees it, “it’s failed” and “imploding.”

The president described the fight over the proposed Republican health care law as “a big fat beautiful negotiation.”

Trump also said he’s being updated about the powerful winter storm that’s expected to hit the Northeast Monday evening.

He said “everybody in government is fully prepared and ready” for the storm. And he urged Americans to listen to local officials and take their advice about what to do.
