Donald Trump: What to expect from the President’s first week in office

Donald Trump is set to spend his first week as president extending olive branches after a rocky 48 hours since taking office.

Since being sworn in, the 45th president of the United States has focused his attention and ire on the media after it reported low attendance at his inauguration.

Trump’s press secretary, Sean Spicer, used his first White House briefing to attack the media, incorrectly, for “deliberately false reporting”.

Using his personal Twitter account, the President also hit out at protestors, before contradicting himself shortly after.

Even members of the president’s inner circle were reportedly dismayed at Trump’s perceived lack of discipline, according to the New York Times.
