Donald Trump released his first weekly address since becoming president Saturday, using about 2 1/2 minutes to recap the opening actions by his administration.

Trump says he met with top manufacturing leaders and labor unions, telling them "we want to make things in America, and we want to use American workers."

He also goes over some executive actions he's signed, including:

Prep for repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act.

Withdrawing from the Trans Pacific Partnership,

An order to get construction going on the Dakota Access and Keystone XL pipeline – after a renegotiation of terms, which would include the requirement all steel be from the U.S. (That's something a Minnesota Democrat actually really liked.)

Expediting permits on new infrastructure and manufacturing plants.

A crackdown on sanctuary cities, plus orders to start building a border wall.

Here's his address. We're assuming you'll be able to see another one next week.
