Trump: "Free the earth from the miseries of disease"

Andrew Harnik/AP

This was President Trump's single mention of health care in his inaugural address:

We stand at the birth of a new millennium, ready to unlock the mysteries of space, to free the Earth from the miseries of disease, and to harness the energies, industries and technologies of tomorrow.

Does this mean Trump will encourage medical innovation? He's barely said a word about it, but his choice of a Food and Drug Commissioner will say a lot about his plans.

What he didn't mention: Obamacare, drug prices or any other hot-button issues. But stay tuned for those executive orders.

Per a Trump transition staffer, the new site, which went live at noon, featured a new image of the incoming President, a welcome message from President Trump, new bios and a few new pages about issues, but keep the aesthetic feel of the site under Obama.

Congress waiting to learn what Trump will do first

The brand new Trump administration is expected to start issuing executive orders today but it's unclear what will be in them. People who should be in the know on the Hill haven't yet been told what's coming or if the first batch of orders will be consequential, or more ceremonial.

There will almost certainly be one on health care, according to a separate person briefed on the plans. More on different issues will be coming on Monday, including environmental regulations.
