Donald Trump is set to get to work first thing Monday morning, three days after he becomes President of the United States.
“Day one – which I will consider to be Monday as opposed to Friday or Saturday. Right? I mean my day one is gonna be Monday because I don’t want to be signing and get it mixed up with lots of celebration,” Trump said, The Hill reported using transcripts of an interview with Times of London.
Inauguration Day is Friday, Jan. 20.
“I would not be a president who took vacations. I would not be a president that takes time off,” Trump told The Hill in a 2015 interview. In November of 2016 he told 60 Minutes he didn’t think he would be ‘very big on vacations.’
Twitter did not let the news go by without criticism.

So Trump thinks that his first day in office is Monday.
He's taking the weekend off. This bodes well…

@studentactivism this is the statement of someone who has never had to actually work, manage, or organize, but has simply given commands.

Trump said his first priority after his long weekend will be “stronger borders.”
